Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, Oyo State, continued their preparation ahead of the alleged resumption date of Nigeria National League (NNL) slated for Match 14, 2020, with a convincing 5-2 victory over First Bank Football Club

The seven (7) goals thriller saw Najeem Olukokun scoring the first goal for Shooting Stars in the 22nd minute before Elvis Isaac equaliser for First Bank in the 31st minute. Opeoluwa Olufemi goal in the 35th minute restored Shooting Stars lead.

In the second half, three (3) more goals from Taye Muritala (47th minute),
Olaniran Rasheed (49th minute) and
Taiwo Oripelaye (60th minute) completed the triumph for the Ibadan Soccer Lord’s before a late penalty from Elvis Isaac which tends to be mere consolation for First Bank.

Uncertainty still surrounds the March 14 date, proposed for the league restart as the NNL is yet to make an official pronouncement on the date

FT: 3SC 5-2 First Bank
Najeem Olukokun 22′
Opeoluwa Olufemi 35′
Taye Muritala. 47′
Olaniran Rasheed 49′
Taiwo Oripelaye 60′
