ABS Beat Crown 2-1 in Ogbomoso…

Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) Ilorin FC on Friday defeated Crown Football Club of Ogbomoso 2-1 at the Soun Township Stadium, Ogbomoso,  in a friendly match. The hosts had gone ahead as early as the third minute before the Saraki Boys settled into the game.

Crown attacker, Moses Ajik, had capitalised on ABS defensive blunder  to tap home from close range in a goal mouth scramble. The visitors 20 minutes later  benefitted from the hosts’ defensive mistake when Effiom Bassey followed up an effort which had almost gone in and quickly tapped  in from a close range before the Crown defenders could clear their line.

The visitors responded better to half time team talk as they went ahead 10 minutes into the restart. Deemua Best beautifully found an unmarked Tosin Olabode in far right who wasted no time in setting himself one on one with the Crown goalkeeper before he beat him to his far left for 1-2. Crown attackers will have themselves to blame for not  converting many of their goal scoring opportunities.

Newsmen also report that the 2017/2018 Nigeria National League is scheduled to commence on March 31.
