The Shooting Stars of Ibadan, this evening defeated Lafia-based Nasarawa United FC, rounding off the first round of the 2021/2022 NPFL season on a victorious note.
Still basking in the euphoria of last Sunday’s triumph over Kano Pillars, the Oluyole Warriors had another triumphant outing, against the Solid Minners, who have not been in good form lately.
A well-placed shot from Anietie Uko from outside the 18yard box in the 15th minute of the encounter put 3SC ahead of their visitors who continued to mount pressure, trying to break through their host’s defence.

Meanwhile, a nasty collision within the centre circle left 3SC’s Uko Aniete and Nasarawa’s Michael Tochukwu requiring medical attention and the Oluyole Warriors were forced to make a substitution in the 30th minute as Ayo Adejubu replaced goal scorer, Anietie Uko, who had to leave the game assisted by the medical team.
