Wolves, Pillars fall in Glo Premier League week 13 ties

22 June 2015, 12:41

Lagos – The week 13 game of the Glo Premier League between Sunshine Stars and defending champions Kano Pillars was expected to spark excitement, but it was the Akure Gunners who scored all the three goals in front of their cheering supporters on Sunday.

In a game which flowed from end to end, Sunshine Stars were the superior team pushing Kano Pillars to their limits, and had the cutting edge which gave them a massive win.

Paul Onobi put Sunshine Stars in front with a brilliant header, with further goals from Seun Olulayo and Dayo Ojo sealing victory for Kennedy Boboye tutored lads.

Sunshine Stars are on top of the 20-team table with 26 points, while Kano Pillars have 21 points.

The much talked about encounter between Shooting Stars and Enyimba International FC ended 0-0 at the Lekan Salami Stadium in Ibadan.

The biggest win of the weekend came at the newly-commissioned Karkanda Stadium, where Ifeanyi Ubah FC thrashed Elkanemi Warriors 4 goals to 1.

Bright Onyedikachi opened the scoring after 14 minutes, before Solomon Eludi doubled the advantage some minutes later.

The third came courtesy of a brilliant solo effort from Bright Onyedikachi as Ifeanyi Ubah continued to dominate and Solomon Eludi also grabbed a brace too.

Elkanemi Warriors pulled one back courtesy of an injury time strike from Mustapha Ibrahim.

In-form youngster Godwin Obaje inspired Wikki Tourists to a three-nil thumping of Sharks FC at the Pantami Stadium in Gombe.

An excellent brace from Godwin Obaje and one from Alaba Johnson completed the win, and further compounded Sharks woes in the 2014/15 season.

Lobi Stars picked up a much needed 1-1 draw at Kwara United. A 78th minute equalizer from Obioma Arinze cancelled out Segun Alebiosu's first half goal for the Harmony Warriors.

Abia Warriors picked up a narrow 1-0 victory at home to Akwa United, with Ndifreke Effiong netting the only goal in a game with very few chances. 

Giwa FC were forced to a one-all draw by Dolphins at the Liberation Stadium. A first half strike from Ocheme Edoh handed the Jos Elephants the curtain raiser, however Ifeanyi Egwim equalised in the 47th minute to claim one point for the Pride of Rivers.

Nasarawa United claimed a hard fought 1-0 win over Bayelsa United with Esosa Igbinoba scoring the only goal of the game.

Heartland brushed aside FC Taraba two goals to nil. Bright Ejike broke the game's bareness in the 6th minute before Roland Koffi delivered the second goal in the 31st minute.

Elsewhere, a first half strike from Razaq Adegbite eased the pressure on ten-man Enugu Rangers who pipped Warri Wolves 1-0 at the Warri City Stadium. Rangers have now moved from 12th to 11th on the table.
