( 29, 2015)-The Liberia National Football League continued over the weekend with a drama at the Nancy B. Doe Stadium in Kakata, Margibi County.

The weekend fixture between LPRC Oilers and LISCR FC, however, ended prematurely as a result of confusion that erupted after an Oilers’ goal was disallowed in the 65th minute.

The central Referee had whistled for the goal, but his assistant flagged to disallow the goal, as he claimed that Benny Tisdell’s corner kick crossed the goal line before it was headed in the LISCR net.

Angry fans then stormed the pitch with some of them assaulting the assistant referee, thus compelling the match officials to call in the police to restore calm in the stadium.

The confusion lasted more than twenty minutes, running into the second match time.

The score was 1-1 just before the incident occurred.
The LFA Competition Committee says it will rule into the matter once it gets the match officials’ report.

Game two saw defending Champions, Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) extending their winless spree to three in the season.

The Blue Warriors were held to a 0-0 draw by ten-man, Watanga FC.
