The University of Lagos Male football team “UNILAG MARINES” defeated Afe Babalola University Ado-Ekiti “ABUAD STARS” three goals to one, to open their qualifying campaign of the 2022 Higher Institutions Football League season.
The game started where the UNILAG MARINES took the early proceedings and possession of the game. The ABUAD STARS got a scrappy goal, which was ruled out due to a handball situation that happened before ball went in.
Not long afterwards, Unilag Marines went ahead after the goalkeeper poorly handled a strike from Adedamola Adesanya and they went into the break ahead.
ABUAD STARS however began the brighter after the break. The ABUAD STARS threatened and got their reward as they came back level but not for long.
Opuoro Augustine got on the finishing end of a fine counter attack move to restore the lead for the Unilag Marines
With the clock winding down, a few changes to preserve their lead from the Unilag bench provided what was to seal the game and substitute Ogala David latched on to a ball from Doyin Omotosho to produce a fine finish and extend their lead as it ended 3-1.
