….As shooting Stars advance to 2nd position on the group standing.
A superb second half performance, capped with three well taken goals, were all that made the difference as Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan hammered Niger Tornadoes of Minna 4-1.
It was a perfect response to last Wednesday’s loss to Remo Stars as the Oluyole Warriors deservedly returned to winning ways in style.
The matchday seven encounter decided at the Lekan Salami Stadium, saw Ayobami Adekunle opening scoring in the 17th minute, finishing up a Joshua Akpan’s pass.
With ten minutes left to end the first half, the Ikon Allah Boys got the equaliser through Earnest Chidebere, to send the teams into the locker room on level terms.
Like in previous games, the coach Gbenga Ogunbote tutored lads produced yet another second half magic, to turn the game around.
A minute into resumption of the game, central defender, Ayodeji Bamidele scored through a well struck free kick, with a fine set up by his defensive partner, Gbolagade Adelowo to put the Stars back in front.
Adelowo will then go on to grab his second goal of the season, scoring off Joshua Akpan’s corner kick in the 64th minute to increase the tally.
Kareem Ademola Ayinde, once again, came off the bench to score, lashing onto a rebound after goalkeeper Enaholo spilled Malomo Taofeek’s shot, to complete the routing of the coach Hamzat Abarah tutored Tornadoes, who put up a good fight in the game but found the Ibadan soccer lords too hard to curtail.
Shooting Stars will next Sunday, face Kwara United in Ilorin, in a Matchday eight fixture.
