Gambia Ports Authority on Saturday held Senegalese side, Jaraaf to a 1-1 draw at the Stade Demba Diop in Dakar during the opening of the 2011 Confederation of African Football (CAF) African Champions League.
Having played a stalemate in the first 45 minutes on January 30, Ports Hatab Badjie put the Gambian side ahead in less than 10 minutes into the second half, having picked up a pass from midfielder Saloum Faal.
However, the Senegalese side trailing of their Gambian opponents ended 6 minutes before full time as Jaraaf’s Ebrima Ndoye brought the game back to square one with a magnificent volley.
Ports heads home with a superior goal in hand with the return led in Banjul slated for a fortnight. Ports will be hoping to progress to the second round of the competition, an attempt former league champions Armed Forces could not achieve in 2009, after being sent-out of the competition by Algeria’s JS Kabilye.
