Fed Cup: Rangers edge Kwara United in five-goal thriller

24 July 2015, 12:12

Abuja - Enugu Rangers qualified for the Federation Cup quarter finals after they defeated Kwara United 3-2 in a round of 16 clash.

Rasaq Adegbite opened the goal account for the Flying Antelopes in the match played at the Area 3 Pitch in Abuja before Bobby Clement and Emeka Eze scored one for themselves while Evans Iyoro and Adeshina Gata got the two goals for the Harmony Warriors.

Razaq Adegbite bundled the ball in from close range to put Rangers ahead on eleven minutes before Kwara United levelled things up fifteen minutes later when Evans Iyoro drilled home from 12 yards after he was set-up by Ismaila Gata.

Rangers made sure that they started the second half on a positive note as Bobby Clement pounced in the area to fire past goalkeeper Suraj Ayeleso.

Kwara United pressed forward despite the setback, and they equalized for the second time on 71 minutes when Adeshina Gata benefited from an excellent pass from his brother Ismaila Gata.

Both teams showed little fear in getting forward during the remaining 19 minutes, though it was the Flying Antelopes side who landed the decisive blow with four minutes left through Emeka Eze's composed finish from a corner kick.

Rangers will continue their adventure in the competition with a quarter-final clash with Elkanemi Warriors on 12th August 2015.
