Matchday 16: Narrow Escape for the Apapa Stars

Matchday 16 did not fall short in expectation. An action-packed game on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The Visitors, Starlet FC from Apapa took the lead in a commanding fashion after some impressive attacking displays. However, the TurfSeason Side put up a great defensive display to keep the shooting stars from Apapa at bay.

Emmanuel Okondor brought the scores to level with a trade-mark rocket off his favourite left foot inside the first minute of the second half. Emmanuel’s strike ends his goal drought in12 games and takes his season tally to 4 goals.

The Starlet FC boys pressed on late and were gifted a goal in the closing minutes to earn a narrow escape.
