With all teams having played 3 matches, bar the day’s two arch rivals Ensc and Bsc, the latter shared top position with newcomers AGEC with 6 points apiece. A very tough match to predict as the two stood at one loss, one win each on head to head.
Fans thronged the Sports Pavilion seats as the two giants went head on in what was to be a replay of last Friday’s aborted match between them.
A box to box match that saw both teams test each other’s goalkeepers, only Sahim Subeya found the net in the early minutes of first half. Bsc led 1-0 at half time, almost a repeat of their last meeting.
Ensc came back strong in the second half will dozen shots on target but Samuel Shikanga did well stop any of them from leveling things in the match played at the main pitch.
Referee for the day Charles Barasa finally called the match to an end and BSc went 3 points clear in the log, followed by AGEC at 6 points. Ensc on the other hand remained at third with four points. Kiswahili, NARE and WIEM all close the log at 3pts, 2pts and 1pt respectively.
The Magazine Reel FERD Football league has another reason to pat itself on the back as the aborted match between Bsc and Ensc prompted an act of goodwill from a league member, one Paul Kavili (Dj Single), who promised to be importing professional referees for crunch clashes that are likely to end in chaos. This is not however his first involvement in the league as he felled a whole goat for his BSc team for exemplary performance in the Premier FERD Football League way back in 2013.
The Pro Dj, a number one fan of the league, deals in selling cheap clean laptops to needy students has given the League’s FA a reason not to worry over who officiates huge derbies that are likely to end in chaos. Before a match that is declared ‘huge’ by the FA, he will rope in a qualified official to oversee the match.
