Christopher Scores Tigers’ First Goal in Lagos League Opener

Christopher Scores Tigers' First Goal in Lagos League Opener

Christopher Jiechei came off the bench to score Tigers’ first goal in the 2024 Lagos League. The Tigers were trailing by a goal at half-time in their opening game of the Lagos Divisional League 2024 Season game against Praise King FC. Christopher’s introduction at half-time made an instant impact as he found the net from a rebound shot.

His goal was however not enough to earn a point for the Tigers as the opposition restored their lead shortly after. Debut boy Chukwudi Isaac’s shot drew the Tigers level 2-2, but it was short-lived. The resilient Praise Kings took the lead again from a free kick at the edge of the box.

It was a dramatic end to the game as the Tigers won a penalty after Nduka Anthony was brought down inside the box. Midfield maestro, Joshua Ogonna, stepped up to take it but his effort a fraction wide off target with the keeper going the wrong way. Joshua’s effort was the last kick of the game, 2-3 full time score.
