Hargeysa, Somaliland, September 3, 2011 (SL Times) – MSG beat Alpha
University and won the soccer competition that went on at the May 31
stadium all through the month of Ramadan.
It was a lively game with a large number of spectators. The
predominantly young players of Alpah University scored a goal right
after the game started, and from then on, controlled the flow of the
game. MSG however adjusted its game and counterattacked until it landed
an equalizer, and the first half ended in a tie (1-1).
The second half started pretty much like the first one with Alpha
University on the attack and repeatedly trying to score but with no
luck. MSG players who were more experienced than Alpha’s played at a
slower tempo with a lot of passes back and forth and they were finally
able to score and lead by 2-1. Things did not end there however, and
towards the end of the game, Alpha University scored a goal and the game
stayed tied until the scheduled time of the game expired.
After that, the match was decided by penalty kicks, which MSG won.
The games were sponsored by SOMTEL telecommunications company.
