Lagos - The much anticipated Nigeria National League (NNL) new season got under way at the weekend as football action-starved fans returned to the various stadia across the country to cheer their darling teams.

Jos-based Mighty Jets walloped Spotlight FC of Katsina 3-0. The same score line recorded by Niger Tornadoes against Supreme Court FC while Kogi United also thrashed Ranchers Bees 3-1 in Lokoja on Saturday even as Federal Road Safety Corps, Abuja and Adamawa United ended their match 1-1 in Group A

In Group B, Bendel Insurance piped First Bank of Lagos 1-0 in Benin City just as Akwa Starlets handed the newly formed Ekiti United 1-0 in Ado Ekiti and Go Round FC also shocked Prime FC 1-0 in Omoku, Rivers State in the first game of the season.
