The Senator Adeleke Memorial Cup Ede Osun State entered the Quarter finals stages today with matches in two venues.
At the Ido Osun venue, Ido Osun Warriors defeated Ofatedo United 2-0.
The first half of the encounter produced no fire works as both teams played as if nothing was at stake, but the second was totally different with tackles flying in from different angles and end to end attacking football from both teams gave the fans joy and it didn’t take long for Ido Osun Warriors to break the deadlock less than 10 minutes into the restart when Hammed Sanusi of Ofatedo United forced the ball into his own net while trying to defend a goal bound effort.
Less than 7 minutes later, Isiak Ibrahim scored a beautiful free-kick at the edge of the box to give Warriors a 2 goal lead.
Ofatedo United then dominated proceeding and dictated the pace of the game but lackluster display upfront means they could only manage one short on-target in the second half.
Ido Osun Warriors also came close to extending their lead towards the end of the match but a moment of brilliance from the defense of United saved them from what could’ve been an embarrassing evening.
With the result, Ido Osun Warriors have now progressed to the semi-finals and will await tomorrow’s quater-final matches to know their next opponent.
At Ejigbo center, Tanjo Surprise FC Ejigbo defeated Ogiyan FC Ejigbo by a lone goal.
The quarter-finals fixtures continues tomorrow as GFCC Ede North takes on Adeleke Dynasty why Adiatu Adebayo FC tackles Alhaji Babatunde Eyiowuawi FC for a place in the semi-finals.
