By Kolubah Zayzay
Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) were Sunday formerly crowned as champions for the fourth time of the Liberian Football Association First division League.
BYC rapped up the season with a 2-0 victory over Keitrace FC who were smelling relegation to the second division.
Keitrace FC’s defeat however keeps them in the first division following a 4-1 demolition of Mighty Dragon FC by FC Fassell at the ATS.
Dragon goes down to the second division alongside NPA Anchors who suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of LISCR FC at the Nancy B. Doe Stadium on Sunday.
Also going down to the second division was Holders FC who played ELWA United to a 0-0 draw at the Blue Field.
LPRC Oilers survived the relegation after whipping a poor Nimba United team 1-0 at the ATS.
That victory was Oilers’ first win in nine matches in the second half of the season and the first even win for acting head coach Prince Kolleh.
Speaking to ELBC Sports, Coach Kolleh said avoiding the drop finally took off the pressure on him.
BYC celebrated their championship crowning with a 2-0 win over Keitrace FC at the Blue on Sunday.
Following that, the BYC family led by Chief Executive Officer Robert Sirleaf quickly arranged mini appreciation program for the players and other supporters.
During that ceremony, BYC CEO, Robert Sirleaf presented the team head Coach Sannah Cooper the biggest gift that he has ever received.
A 4-runner jeep was given Coach Cooper as appreciation for leading the team to the championship.
Just before he was handed the gift, he spoke to the press, expressing joy for winning the first division league on a high note.
