Glo Premier League week 11 wrap

15 June 2015, 11:18

Lagos - Life after Franklin Howard continued with no worries for Shooting Stars, as Gbenga Ogunbote master-minded his first victory in charge of the team.

Lobi Stars lacked the strength to cope with the form of Shooting Stars at the Lekan Salami Stadium where they lost 3-0 on Sunday, in the Glo Premier League week 11.

Ibrahim Ajani got the opener for the Oluyole Warriors before Ajayi Junior netted a brace to seal victory.

In Lafia, home team Nasarawa United managed a solitary 1-0 victory over Akwa United.

Ibrahim Ibrahim gave the Solid Miners the match winner in the first half to leave the Uyo side in the relegation bracket.

At the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, a determined Enyimba side got a 0-0 draw against a less clinical Wikki Tourists.

Goals from Dare Ojo, Olufemi Oladapo and Emmanuel Amungwa proved crucial as Kwara United defeated a wasteful Enugu Rangers 3-1.

Abia Warriors kept their chase for the title on course with an inspiring 3-2 win against Sunshine Stars.

Chisom Chikatara netted a brace, the last a last-gasp penalty as the hosts condemned the Akure Gunners to a loss.

Giwa FC crushed Ifeanyi Uba FC 2-0 at the Rwang Pam Stadium, with Charles Henlong and Ocheme Edoh scoring one each for the Jos Elephants.

The visitors lifted their game but could not find the back of the net.

Heartland were simply in no mood for joke as they massacred Bayelsa United 4-1 in front of their cheering fans at the Dan Anyiam Stadium.

Togolese import Saibou Badarou waited just nine minutes to net the opener, before Bright Ejike scored the first of his brace, burying a rebound from a poorly cleared Ebere Odiche free kick.

The Restoration Army tried to fight back, pegging the hosts to their half but it was goalkeeper Emmanuel Iwu that kept them at bay.

First, he pushed off Eric Frimpong’s goal bound header and then blocked a rebound from Oghogho Oduokpe on 35 minutes.

Ejike then got his second of the evening executing a simple tap-in after a fine work down the right flank by substitute Chidiebere Ajoku.

Tony Abawulu pulled one back for Bayelsa United on 71 minutes while on the dot of regulation time, substitute Julius Ubido netted from a free kick from 25 yards to end the game at 4-1.

Elkanemi Warriors finally breathe easy with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over FC Taraba at the Kano Pillars Stadium.

Bobby Abel opened the scoring for FC Taraba in the first half before Ibrahim Mustapha delivered the equalizer from the penalty spot.

Taraba were undone when Mustapha profited from a goal mouth scramble to hand the three points to the Borno Army.
