Faisal Bu Dahoom scored the lone goal to lead East Riffa to a 1-0 victory over Al Hala in an opening week match of the Nasser bin Hamad Football Premier League at Bahrain National Stadium last night.
The goal came in the 52nd minute, helping East Riffa earn their first three points this season.
The first half did not produce any goal with both teams depending on defence and counter attacks.
Bu Dahoom had no trouble sending the ball into the net after receiving a fine cross from Ali Abdulla in the 52nd minute.
East Riffa came close to making it 2-0 through Spaniard Alex but his header went past the bar.
