Sports

Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan on Wednesday  gave their chances of featuring in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL)  next season a boost  following  a 2- 1 victory over Warri  Wolves FC  during the  Nigeria National League (NNL)  Mid – Week  game  played at the  Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba,  Ibadan .

The Oluyole Worriors got the lead seven minute into the game through Nurudeen Sani but wasted numerous chances in the first half which they later paid for.

Warri Wolves  approached second stanza of the game in style which produced an equalizer  for the visitors , courtesy of Jonathan Ebule’s 55th minute solo effort as 3SC goalkeeper   and last man  failed to live up to expectation .

Olawale Mutiu, who came into the game from bench for Ayobami Junior put smile on faces of 3SC fans at exactly 68th minute with a brilliant free kick.

In his remarks, Oyo State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Mr. Abayomi Oke commended Shooting Stars players for rising up to the occasion, adding that concerted efforts would be made to ensure the team return to the Nigeria Premier League this season.

Speaking shortly after the game, Shooting Stars Head Coach, Edith Agoye, described the game as a competitive one, saying that Warri Wolves played without pressure which according to him gave the players opportunity to give good account of themselves.

Coach Agoye, hinted   that his side would approach their last game against Bendel Insurance of Benue with right tactics and commitment in order to get good result.

Reacting to the game, Warri Wolves Head Coach, Jeorge emeniete attributed their loss to bad officiating.

“The referee was not kind to us in his officiating compared to what Shooting Stars enjoyed when we played host to them. We gave 3SC freedom to proof their worth but today, reverse is the case It is high time for football administrators in Nigeria to put an end to this idea of   winning at all cost by home teams for the development of the game”
