Match Report: 1-0 Win vs Current FC

Just one goal from our top scorer Emmanuel Okondor, his second in as many games this season, was enough to seal TurfSeason first victory of the 2018 Season. A calmly slotted effort from the left winger was appreciated by our special guest of the day, Super Eagles and Chelsea FC Defender, Kenneth Omeruo, who tipped the young teenager for success.

OMERUO TIPS OKONDOR FOR GREATNESS: #TurfSeason leading goal scorer with 2 goals (+1 assist) in two games and stand-in captain against Current FC, Emmanuel Okondor, has been tipped by @ChelseaFC and #SuperEagles #WorldCup bound Defender, Kenneth Omeruo, as a hot prospect. EXCITING

Current FC failed to convert two penalties awarded them on either side of the half, resulting to a very wasteful afternoon for the Oworonshoki based football club founded in 1989. The lack of clinical finishing was also made difficult by the Turf Season defense who earned a clean sheet, another first this season. The hard-tackling Henry Kingsley and ever-present Dare Agbaje in the heart of the defense make it a tough evening for the visitors at Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) Sports Stadium.
