In Freetown, two times FA Cup winners Ports Authority FC were shown the exit door following their first leg 1-0 defeat to the Sierra Leone Armed Force (RSLAF FC) and the return leg ended goalless, allowing the military boys to progress on 1-0 aggregate win.

Also, Mighty Blackpool follow Ports and Diamond Stars through the door following Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat suffered to Freetown City FC. The Tiss Tass boys lost 2-1 on aggregate after the first leg tie ended in a 1-1 draw.
