By Sulayman Bah It was a bitter pill to swallow for Gambia’s home-based ScorpionsGambia’s home-based Scorpions after getting kicked out of the CHAN by a resolute visiting Senegalese outfit on Saturday. The first –leg ended on a shocking 3-1 defeat for Bonu’s charges atthe Stade Demba Diop and required to overturn the result to score two unanswered goals to breeze through the next and final qualifier hurdle. There wasn’t any confidence crisis in the team except for pressure to deliver before Gambian supporters –who for a strong belief of a possible qualification –had flocked into the stadium in surprising numbers. Assisted by Matarr Mboge in the dug-out, Bonu watched presumably in sheer awe as his charges were run through a strange cone-running training drilljust seconds from game start when the Taranga Lions were long done and on brink of posing for the cameras. And despite that impromptu quick work-out drill it was gaffer Moustapha Seck’s coalition of Lionswho that stole the headlines scoring an early 8th minute goal that left the hosts gob-smacked. Ablie’s well-taken cross from the right skipped past a mass of heads in the Gambian box to a barely marked Mouhamad Waliou Ndoye who settled well to head past a helpless Scorpions keeper Christoper Allen. It proved the game’s only goal and one the Gambian outfit would later pay dearly for. Ablie Jallow reacted swiftly for Gambia but the attack stuttered when striker Emil Sambou failed to follow-up Jallow’s through ball inside Senegal’s half. Bully Drammeh’s leg took him past his marker and the Brikama United skillful marks-man gambled in a cross which hReal de Banjul’s Jallow un-inspiringly wasted with a weak header that Senegal’s net-minder Cheikh Amadou BambaThioub scooped untroubled. The teams went into the locker room with Senegal leading. Fresh from break goal-provider Ablie Bah penetrated the Gambian defence line but got barged into by goalkeeper Allen. Gambia had the Lion’s share of the chances but the profligacy in front of goal was quite apparent with a man striker. It was Senegal first defeat of Gambia since 2003 when the two teams meeting ended in controversy.]]>
