Jubilee Opens Orange Cup Quarterfinals With Victory

By S. Siapha Mulbah
Bishop Allen Klayee Church boys, Jubilee Football Club, has opened the quarterfinals of the Liberia Football Association Orange Cup with a convincing 2-0 win over in-form and high-scoring second division side, Discoveries Football Club.
At the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex Practice Pitch in Paynesville City on Thursday, March 7, 2024, the Jubilee FC, before a well-attended crowd of football fans and spectators of the two clubs at the stand, scored on two occasions and maintained its defense against Discoveries, finding a scoring chance in the first leg of the LFA cup to celebrate the competition first win at this stage of the competition, while the second leg stands at hand in the following two weeks.
Playing on home soil for the day, the Church Boys scored in the first half on 21 minutes through Trokon Yancy, after the goalkeeper of the visiting side, Elijah Kumeh, had miscalculated a long cross that beat his backline of defenders and landed in his penalty zone for the scorer.
Yancy’s strike for the first goal took the team to a halftime victory and the coaches speedily escorted their teams to the washroom at the sound of the whistle to give instructions for defense for the leading side and robust attack for the team that was down to a goal.
However, after the break, the Church Boys sealed the win in the 79th minute, when Thomas Broh of Jubilee FC netted the last goal of the match. Discoveries, as a team noted for a strong attack with numerous goalscoring techniques, could not easily find the scoring legs of players like Cephus Garbo, Johnathan Freeman, Saah Moses, and others.
The two second division teams are going to meet in the second leg fixture of the quarterfinal in the next two weeks at the home ground of Discoveries Sports Academy, the Tusa field, in the township of Gardnerville, to end the rivalry and find an answer to the question of who advances to the next stage of the LFA/Orange Cup.
