Defending Champions Bo Rangers Football club has on 9th December 202 held goalless by Real Republicans.
The Champions were frustrated by the strength of newcomers Real Republicans as Sierra Leone Premier League defending champions were held 1-1 at the Bo City stadium.
Ibrahim Sorie Conteh had the first chance of the day for the visitors and registered the official goal in the Sierra Leone Premier League 2022/ 2023 in the 88mins of play. Two minutes later, the hosts continued to pile pressure and caused problems for the visitors and Fleance Jumu Kamara to get the equalizer with an assist from Abu Komeh in the 90mins of play.
It’s good to start for the visitors who went beyond all odds to secure a very vital point in the home of the defending champion which has sent a strong signal to the rest of the premier league clubs.
Real Republicans’ next match will be at home against FC Johansen on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at the Police field, Kingtom in Freetown.
This is the fifth match the Rangers have played without winning at home and they have a huge task in defending their Champions Trophy for the second time in the season. Early before the match, the Assistant Public Relations Officer of Bo Rangers Football club Solomon Demby said they are going to start the league where they left off and doing their best to maintain their title for the second time in a role in Sierra Leone.
