Match Report: 1 – 2 vs Zik Football Academy

turfseason matchday7 vs zik football academy

Matchday 7 vs Zik Football Academy produced another fine goal from Rufai Suleiman which makes him our top scorer with 4 goals in 7 games. However, handicapped in goal due to injuries to our 2 goalies, Dare Agbaje (Defender) was brave to step up between the sticks in a fine display where the better team won. 2 second-half goals cancelled Rufai Suleiman’s brilliant opener but it was indeed a good match to shape the boys for the challenge still to come.
