Njalla Quan SA 2-0 Best Stars

It proved to be a hotly contested derby between the two Academicians as it was going to be revenge for NQSA after suffering a 5-1 to last year’s finalist last term.

The Bimbia Boys took the lead in the second after an own goal from Best Stars defender Njie Billa Emmanuel, before Ngeme Ngassa scored his eighth goal of the campaign to give NQSA a 2-0 win.

Tiko United 1-2 Istanbul Football Academy

The last game of the day proved to be a game of physicality with Tiko United being the better side on paper, but Istanbul stun the 2009 Elite One champions as Kans Junior put the debutants in front.

Quick response for coach Kengo Raymond and his boys as 2021 top scorer Bache Manfred scored his seventh goal of the campaign to level scores.

Istanbul had their game plan as former Continental FA forward Robert Koneyi scored his fourth goal to regain Istanbul’s lead.

The defeat for Tiko United means they will have to wait for another season to play the Regional playoffs final since suffering relegation to the Regional championship in 2014.
