MONROVIA, Montserrado â€“ First division club Barrack Young Controllers has solidified its position at the top of the league table after an emphatic 2-1 win away at the Bong County-based Mighty Dragons.
The Blue Boys came from a goal down to sink the Mighty Dragons deep into relegation.
The home team took the lead in the 20th minute through a Joseph Mento goal but Mark Paye leveled level the score for BYC in the 41st minute.
Paye, who is the leagueâ€™s leading goal scorer with 14 goals, won and controlled the ball in the Dragonsâ€™ penalty box, before placing the ball at the back of the net to end the first half at 1-1.
Back from the break, the Dragons missed the opportunity to take the lead for the second time after they were awarded a penalty for a Claudius Morrisâ€™ hand ball. However, they missed a golden opportunity after Christopher Amadiah was denied by goalkeeper Morris Tarr who made a brilliant save.
Claudius Morris scored ten minutes later after the winger converted Payeâ€™s assist, as BYC secured a vital 2-1 victory at the Dragons.
Speaking after his teamâ€™s 2-1 Victory over the Mighty Dragons, BYC Coach Cooper Sannah said with the victory, he is confident of winning the league and will fight to maintain his unbeaten home record.
