Reigning Liberian domestic league champions LPRC Oilers have won the LFA Orange First Division league for a second successive time after recording a comfortable win over relegated side Nimba FC on Sunday.

It was a completely one-sided encounter as the Oilers crumbled Nimba FC 9-0 on the final match-day at the Gompa Sports Stadium to retained their crown.

Terry Sackor was a top-notch as he netted in seven of the nine goals in the dramatic contest.

The first half was a complete one-man show as Sackor scored all four goals to give the champions an overwhelming first half win.

The skipper got the first of his seven goals 4 minutes into time with the second in the 9th minute of play.

He scored in the 21st and 37th minute to give Oilers an easy 4-0 win in the first period.

Despite a weak and poor first half performance from the home side, fans still look up to a tough second half clash but the champions continue their scoring spree with 5 goals in the last 45.

Titus Cooper who was also up to the task put his name on the score sheet with a brilliant goal with five minutes in second half.

Fred Brooks increased Oilers lead to 6-0 21 minutes away from the full-time.

Sackor got his last three goals in the 78th, 79th and the stoppage time.

Nimba FC were absolutely no match to the champions throughout the entire 90 minutes.

Oilers finished as the league winners ahead of LISCR who were their immediate title rivals on the final match-day as both sides were separated by a singular point going into the last contest.

LPRC won 13 games in total this season, drew 7 and lost 2 out of 22 games played in the 2020/21 campaign.

The champions scored 54 goals this season and conceded 20.

They won the league with 46 points as LISCR finished second with 45 points.

The Shipping boys in another match-day action defeated Monrovia Club Breweries 2-0 at the ATS, but that result was not enough to dethrone the champions of the crown.

The 9-0 win was sufficient to give the Oilers a back-to-back crown.

LPRC won a cash prize of 1.6 million Liberian Dollars and will represent Liberia at the CAF Champions League next season.
