Gambia wallops Sierra Leone 4-1 at Wafu

A dazzling diminutive looking Gambia Police FC player Catherine Jatta inspired The Gambia to a resounding 4-1 victory over Sierra Leone at the Wafu Zone A Women’s Football Championship in Sal, Cape Verde Islands Saturday.The youngster scored a haul, all the four goals, including the fastest in the tournament’s history when she struck the opener in a little over a minute after kick-off.The Sierra Queens could only settle for a consolation goal. Catherine was naturally voted the most outstanding player and decorated by Wafu with a well-deserved award.The small Gambian community in Sal greeted the team with cheers, drumming, singing and dancing while flaunting The Gambia national colours.Coach Mariama ‘Bom’ Sowe used the match to give a first cap to several newcomers including Fatoumatta Jammeh, Mamie Sey and Fatoumatta Erma.The Gambian girls return to action today, Monday, against defending Champions Senegal who beat Guinea 4-0.The match was watched by football federation prexy Lamin Bajo who praised the girls for making The Gambia proud.
