Match Report: 4 – 4 Draw vs Alphas FC

Two goals from Sheriff and Christopher in the first 5-minutes set the pace for an exciting goal thriller. Perhaps, our best game of the season yet. The Alphas Team responded with 3 goals before half-time but that did not settle matters as Rufai Suleiman hit a half-volley from a low cross from the right. Sheriff made it 4 with a cheeky goal from the left-side. A foul from Dare Agbaje gifted the Alphas another penalty, a second in the game, which they did not fail to convert  to level the scores. 4 -4. Outstanding performance from Benedict Agonsi on his season debut in the heart of the midfield earned him a joint man of the match award with two goals hero, Sheriff Olalokun. Game on!
