Kanifing Layout Football Club were over the weekend crowned league champions.
The Layout-based outfit sent Manga II FC packing before a parked Serrekunda West mini-stadium to scoop the Qcell sponsored gong.
It took a moment of brilliance for Kanifing to force Manga into conceding a goal, a 1-0 they maintained going into the hiatus.
Resumption of the game had Manga on the front foot, itching to spark up an inspiration in a severe search for an equaliser.
However, a counter-attack mid into the second phase saw the match going beyond Manga II’s reach after a Kanifing striker got bundled down in the box with the referee gingerly pointing to the spot-kick –a resultant effort of which Kanifing buried into the net to send them 2-0 up.
Just as Manga tried settling down again, Kanifing added another –the final blow breaking the camel’s back as the tie wrapped up 3-0.
