CAF Champions League: LISCR Fight Back to Draw 1-1 with Bo Rangers

Liberia’s first division champions LISCR FC fought back on Saturday to draw 1-1 away to Bo Rangers in the first preliminary round of the CAF Champions League at the Southern Arena in Sierra Leone.

The match, which was the first meeting between both sides, was competitive, as the home side took charge of the match when Mohamed Kabba headed in the opener just two minutes into the match.

LISCR were confident of getting back on level terms as they confidently kept possession in search of the equalizer.

Christopher Jackson leveled the score before halftime in the 34th minute by finishing off Daniel Toe’s assist after fighting his way through.

With an eye on the return leg at home, LISC entered the second half with a defensive mindset and sat back to prevent the home team from scoring another goal.

Bo Rangers attempted to earn all three points at home by putting all of their efforts forward but were unsuccessful.

“It was a competitive game, and we struggled to stop our opponents’ long passes, but overall it was a decent game, and based on how we played in the waning seconds, we are hopeful of a better outcome at home,” LISCR’s coach Sam Chebli said in his post-match reaction.

Alhaji Foray, the head coach of Bo Rangers, thinks that there is still hope for his team going into the decisive second leg.

“I can tell you that we will give them [the fans] a better result in the return leg because everything is not lost, and we still have time; the game is still open.”

The return leg is scheduled for Sunday, August 27, at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville.
