After being without a single win from their last 3 league fixtures, Coach Kollie Korvy’s men secured a well-deserved and hard-fought 2-0 victory over Freeport FC as striker Nyahn Dahn hit the net two times at the Nimba County Stadium in Sanniquellie in a Match-day 19 encounter on Sunday, 25 April.
It was Nyahn Dahn’s first brace of the season as he has being in a high scoring form for Nimba Kwado from a midweek Petrol Trade Cup fixture against Second Division side Muscat FC at the SKD Practice Pitch back on Wednesday.
Dahn announced himself once again in the LFA Orange top-flight following a mind blowing performance against visitors Freeport FC in Sanniquellie at the weekend becoming the only goal scorer in the fascinating match-day action.
The win maintained Kwado at the Second-placed on the league table with two points difference between they and title holders, LPRC Oilers, with 3 matches left to end the campaign.
The reigning Liberian football champions LPRC Oilers for their part, collected a mouthwatering 4-1 win over Small Town FC at the TUSA Field in Gardnersville.
Randy Dukuly scored twice as Terry Sackor and Daniel Woto hit the curtain one time each.
With this win, the Oilers remained on the table with two points over their primary title rivals, Nimba Kwado. This means LPRC hope of retaining the championship is nearing reality as they appeared to be uncompromising every match-day, however, Kwado are still hoping for the champions to get a slip from either of their remaining 3 league games.
On the other hand, Small Town FC will now play in the Orange National Second tier for the upcoming season after being demoted due to a very poor run of the season which saw the club winning only one game out 19 consecutive league games keeping them at the bottom of the table, their worst finished ever in the Liberian football league.
As it stands, champions Oilers and title contenders Kwado have to keep up on the winning ways else, the story can possibly change considering the push from LISCR at the 3rd-placed.
There are still plenty of drama to watch out for as we move toward the finished line.
In Kinjor, home side FC Bea Mountain were stunned to 2-1 lost to LISCR FC. Prince Bono and Mark Karlay scored a goal each for the Shipping Boys as Leone Quamie got a consolation for the Cape Mountaineers.
The win keeps LISCR 3rd on the table with an outstanding match in hand against Nimba FC which if they win will see them behind Second-placed Kwado by one point and 3 beneath league leaders LPRC Oilers. This also means that LISCR are potential league contenders.
Watanga FC put themselves back on winning ways following an incredible 2-0 win over Mighty Barrolle at the ATS in Monrovia.
Thanks to a goal each from the legs of Rokinho Weah and Elijah Clarke which saw Watanga collecting all three points.
Nimba United defeated Monrovia Club Breweries 1-0 at the North Star Stadium to continue moving upward on the table after escaping the dangerous zone. Princo Nanakpallah pulled the trigger to captured the important win for the Mount Barclay based club.
Nimba FC lost their 5th home game of the season to further confirmed their relegation. They lost 3-0 to NPA Anchors who are also desperate for survival from the red zone.
This means the Mountain Lions will play in the Second Division league next season.
