By Pa M Jatta:
Steve Biko welcomed Gunjur United at the Independence Stadium in Bakau and Gunjur United thrashed them 3-1 on home soil. Steve Biko started brilliantly in the first half with some great dominance in the proceedings, threatening Gunjur in their own half but the visiting side kept their cool, calmness and maintained their long ball game plan.
Gunjur Utd broke the deadlock courtesy of Dawda Darboe widely known as Viper at the 35 minute mark after a well taken cross down the far right of Malang Jarsey alais Uncle inspired a thrilling easy finish of VIPER.
The goal ignited Gunjur's spirit more into the game as they kept knocking the ball leaving Steve Biko to chase on their shadows and then came another celebrating mood for the southern boys after Omar Touray alias Busquet taps in to double Gunjur's lead 36 mins into the game after a poor defensive clearance from Biko.
Gunjur Utd went into the break with their heads held high up, and Steve Biko with a big mountain to climb in the second half. The second half began with Steve Biko showing signs of urgency with some new players being introduced which somehow paid dividend as Steve Biko pulled one back 49th minutes into game courtesy of Kemo Kanyi. Steve Biko kept pressurising in search of a leveller but Gunjur wouldn't allow such.
Gunjur Utd introduced Abubacarr Demba, alias Ozil, Tijan Jaiteh, alias Bariteh and Musa Jammeh, alias Rakitic which paid dividend as it stabilised their team and got them hitting on Steve Biko especially on the far right. Then in the 84th minutes, central referee Nfamara awarded Gunjur a deserved penalty and Salief Bojang alais Bappa stepped up and took the penalty sending the keeper the wrong to give Gunjur United a 3-1 lead.
