Babu Sama’s first half strike was enough to send Sukuta top of Group B with 8 points after defeating an impressive Gunjur side on Tuesday in the final group game at the Box Bar Mini-Stadium.
Gunjur gaffer Bubacarr Kakai Bojang made 10 changes to the team that defeated Bakau.
Sukuta started the game brightly pushing hard as Gunjur grew gradually into the game.
The turning point came when Sama turned home a brilliant shot before the end of the first half.
After the break, Gunjur pushed hard for an equaliser but Sukuta’s held firm.
In a post-match interview, Sukuta coach said the encounter was tense, while commending his players for a respectable performance.
Gunjur Coach Bubacarr Kakai Bojang blamed the defeat to ‘poor match officiating’, saying the goal scored by Sukuta was an offside.
Gunjur finished third place in Group B and will face Brikama in the quarterfinal stage.
Meanwhile, both Bakau and Brufut are out of the competition after finishing bottom of Group B.
