More Action in Cellcom/LFA Knockout Completion
-As IE, LISCR, NPA bow out of LFA Knockout
The Liberia Football knockout competition continued Wednesday with two of Liberia’s biggest clubs bowing out of the competition at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Monrovia.
Defending knockout champions IE was beaten by a goal to nil at the hands of NPA. The port boys got the win midway in the first half as the yellow boys fought in vain to level the score line.
In the day’s second encounter, arguably Liberia’s top most outstanding teams defending champions LISCR FC and BYC played full time with a goalless draw. However, it was post match penalty shootout that saw BYC going through to the next round of the competition on a 5-4 score line.
The match was considered one of the best seen at the ATS in recent years. However, LISCR took much of the possession and chances on goal.
In other games over last weekend, Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) defeated NPA Anchors 2-0 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) to reach the big sixteen in the Liberia Football Association knockout stage of the ongoing 2011/2012 league season.
The Go-Blue Leon Power and Ganefor Kromah were on target in the first and second halves to eliminate the Port boys from the tournament.
On Saturday, LISCR FC went down to BYC 5-4 in post match penalty kicks after full time ended goalless, while Invincible Eleven (I.E) was dumped 1-0 at the hands of NPA Anchors.
Meanwhile, round 10 of the National Cellcom league resumes Monday at the ATS and other venues across the country.
