Glo Premier League Week 15 wrap: Sunshine Stars back on top

02 July 2015, 14:55

Lagos - Week 15 of the 2014/2015 Glo Professional Football League was played across ten centres in Nigeria with teams getting incredible scorelines.

There was no dull moment as all the sides livened up the match venues with exciting football.

Sunshine Stars thumped Akwa United 3-1 at the Akure Township Stadium to move back to the summit and further aid their title ambitions.

Goals always seemed likely in the first half and didn't take too long for the Akure Gunners to set the ball rolling. It took only eight minutes for the breakthrough to come with Kehinde Adedipe scoring for them. Dayo Ojo doubled the lead in the 49th minute and Prince Aggrey then thumped in a delicious third.

The visitors had to wait until late in the match to eventually net a face saving goal. Defender Nnamso Edo was scorer.

Enyimba International edged Coach Tunde Abdulrahman closer to the labour market as they pipped Kwara United 3-2 at the Kwara State Stadium.

Ifeanyi George opened the scoring for the reigning Federation Cup Champions with a 26th minute strike kick before Christian Obiozor further compounded the woes of the Harmony Warriors with the second goal of the day and his third since he joined the People's Elephants some weeks ago.

Late in the first half, Olufemi Oladapo gave Kwara United a glimmer of hope with a screamer as the first half ended 2-1 in favour of the visitors. Enyimba weren't done yet and a penalty was converted by Markson Ojobo, before Dare Ojo grabbed an injury time goal for the home team.

Wikki Tourists were held at home by a resilient Giwa FC side to a 1-1 draw at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi. Mustapha Ibrahim opened the scoring for the home side in the 55th minute but Ibrahim Shuaibu equalized for Giwa FC on the 70th minute mark.

Abia Warriors broke the jaw of Bayelsa United as they won 3-1 at home.

It was an all-round contribution from Ndifreke Effiong as he accounted for two assists and netted a goal.

Bolaji Sakin drew the first blood for Abia Warriors with other goals coming from Ifeanyi Onyeali and Ndifreke Effiong. Eric Frimpong grabbed a consolation for the away side.

Aminu Abdulkadir and Ishaya Anyu grabbed a goal each in the 5th and 79th minute as Nasarawa United beat FC Taraba 2-0.

Enugu Rangers fought back to beat Kano Pillars in Enugu as Godspower Anefiok's opener in the 10th minute was cancelled out by Godwin Aguda in the 27th minute and Bobby Clement got the much needed match-winner in the 33rd minute.

A first half goal from Jacob Ogunleye in the 45th minute ensured that Shooting Stars defeated Sharks 1-0.

Substitute Saibou Badarou scored the game’s only goal with three minutes to play as Heartland FC secured a one-nil victory over Ifeanyi Uba FC.

Warri Wolves increased their points haul with a narrow 1-0 win over Lobi Stars at the Warri City Stadium. A first half strike from Onyekachi Okafor was enough to hand maximum points to the Seasiders.

Elsewhere, a stunning free kick from Suleiman Dorri gave Elkanemi Warriors a 1-0 home win against Dolphins FC.
