After playing four matches without a win, East End Lions (the Killers)have secured a 2-1 victory against the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces at the Siaka Stevens Stadium.

The Killers were under pressure to get a win after they (East End Lions) have only managed to score one goal after two hundred and seventy minutes of play.

The match started off with high physicality as there was an intense battle for the midfield area.

Both teams had wanted to get control of the park in order to get a breakthrough on goal but the heavy tackles unleashed gave no one the advantage.

The army men pull the first trigger in the seventeenth minutes of play as Ibrahim Sillah (Agogo) put his side in front with a perfect placed shot to beat the E.E Lions stopper.

The goal gingered up the Killers as their fans were not ready to accept any other result than a win.

In the twenty fifth minutes of play,YemiDunya leveled the score line for East End Lions as he comfortably headed in a set piece that was awarded to his side (E.E Lions).

The Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces protested for an offside as the scorer (Dunya) was deemed to have been in an off side position when he scored the goal.

East End Lions doubled their lead in the second half of play when Musa TomboKamara was gifted with a perfect chance on goal and he (Tombo) wasted no time to tap in the ball.

RSLAF protested again heavily for the goal as they believed that the E.E Lions striker was in an offside position.

The army men were left devastated by this second goal.

They tried all out to regain their confidence and possibly steal a late equalizer but time was not their friend.

At the end of the match players and fans of RSLAF went ablaze and tried to attack the referee but security personnel secured him through the tunnel.

This attempted attack that was made by RSLAF led to their goal keeper receiving a red.

The win took E.E Lions to second position with sixteen points from eight matches played in the league.
