Liberia’s 2010 Super Cup champion Barrack Young Controller FC Wednesday openly annihilated Tonia FC 3-0 at the ATS stadium in Monrovia.
The match started on charming note for both clubs, but Tonia FC failed to control the midfield later, making the ending part of the first half very difficult for them. BYC offensive machines took advantage of that weakness of their opponent by doing lots of crosses, but said crosses were not materialized.
But at last, in dying minute of the first half, Andrew Swaray turned the stage of the game into a 1-0 lead for BYC. Few minutes later, the Barrack boys got the second gold through their midfielder Grant Targbwe, when he dribbled two Tonia FC defenders and landed the ball into the right pocket.
Striker Lamie Jabateh closed the goal sheet of the day through a collective effort from the midfield by taking a wide shot to the right side of the net. After the break, actions resumed with positive approaches from Tonia FC. The newly promoted side was powerless to beat the defense of BYC as most of their attacks failed.
Liberia’s 2010 Super Cup champions, Barrack Young Controller Football Club, returned to the country nearly a week after they failed to defend their African International Youth Football Tournament (AIYT) trophy.
According to deputy coach Emmanuel G. Kay-Kay, the 27 man-delegation was unable to defend the trophy while in Sierra Leone. The tournament is held every year, with International Clubs and national Youth teams.
BYC’s first encounter of the tournament was scheduled against the Sierra Leonean Under-20 football team, with a 2-0 defeat at the National Stadium in Freetown. The technical abilities of BYC were insufficient to turn things around in that match.
They went into their second fixture with Nigerian side Ojoko FC, a 1-0 victory owned to the gold of striker Lamie Kamara in the 36th minute of the match. The team failed in their third encounter against the Gambian Under-20, bowing 2-1.
