Glo Premier League week 21 wrap: 3SC survive Wikki scare

06 August 2015, 12:09

Lagos - There were goals galore in the match-day 21 of the Glo Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The nine games produced 28 goals and eight home victories but the late drama in Ibadan was the most exciting of all.

A brace from Nojeem Olukokun handed Shooting Stars the victory despite the fact that Godwin Obaje scored the first goal of the game for Wikki Tourists. Shooting Stars have now taken 29 points from a possible 63 so far in the 21-week old league season.

It completes a bad week for Wikki Tourists who drew on Sunday at home to Heartland and only arrived Ibadan late Tuesday night due to the fault developed by their bus on their way to the match venue.

Nasarawa United emerged victorious in a six-goal thriller against Elkanemi Warriors at the Lafia Township Stadium. Elkanemi Warriors scored in the first half through Audu Abraham and Mustapha Ibrahim, while Esosa Igbinoba and Thomas Zenke were on song for the Solid Miners as the first 45 minutes ended two-nil. Further goals from Abdulbasit Shittu and Igbinoba handed the maximum points at stake to the home team.

It was a much more one-sided affair in Makurdi as Lobi Stars eased past Bayelsa United with a 3-0 success, thanks to a penalty strike from Anthony Okpotu and brace netted by in-form attacking midfielder Enokela Akleche.

Warri Wolves realised their hopes of winning the league title as a brace from Gbolahan Salami and one goal from Ikechukwu Ibenegbu secured a 3-0 victory over FC Ifeanyi Uba.

Re-branded Kwara United showed fighting spirit as they fought back to edge Dolphins FC 2-1 at the Kwara State Stadium.

Omo Johnson silenced the passionate Ilorin fans with a fine finish but the Harmony Warriors replied through splendid strikes from Abubakar Yusuf and Dare Ojo.

Onoriode Odah was on target as Rangers pipped a stubborn FC Taraba team one-nil in Enugu.

Champions Kano Pillars continued their resurgence under Mohammed Baba Ganaru with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Heartland FC at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

Babangida Hassan profited from a defensive blunder to put the Naze Millionaires on the front seat. However, the hosts replied through Azeez Shobowale and a second half penalty from Rabiu Ali.

Abia Warriors proved strong customers at home with a 2-0 win against Giwa FC courtesy of a double bagged by Chisom Chikatara.

Elsewhere, the match between Akwa United and Enyimba FC ended in a thrilling two-all draw.
