AWEIL, May 6, 2015 [Gurtong] -
In a match that was jam parked by spectators at the freedom square in the town’s main playground, the twice crowned champions, El Salam bitterly lost to their opponents, Ayat stars 2-1 in their second row of the tournament.

As the champions suffered dominance of the game’s possessions and several attempts on target, the club’s fans were still hopeful of aiming for a draw as the game worsened in the hands of the champions but their hopes were brought to an end when the referee blew the last whistle of the game.

Despite today’s loss to the newly promoted club to first division, Ayat, the champions still have other tough fixtures before they qualify for the South Sudan Cup to allow them go for the next round competitions either in Wau or Juba.

As the first round fixtures conclude next week, there is a likelihood that the champions may end up playing El Mareikh, Aweil Stars and Islah FC.

El Mareikh has been a strong rival to El Salam as they beat El Salam FC in the 2012 South Sudan cup.

Santino Lual, a fan of Ayat stars praised the performance of Ayat saying the results proved that there is nothing impossible in Football and that Ayat would one day be the champions of Northern Bahr el Ghazal if they continue to play the same game.

Today Islah FC will take on Mudiria FC while Hai-toch [Kuom] FC will play against Tuektuek FC tomorrow Friday.
