Broad City Held to Draw by Escola

Escola’s wait for a second win of the season continued as they were held to a draw by Broad City.

The visitors, having endured a poor patch of form, were seeking to make the most of the encounter, and at least, climb away from the bottom of the log. And they started out in fine fashion, asking questions of their hosts using their vigor.

 They were however met with an equally invigorated Broad City side. The hosts soaked the pressure, limited Escola’s chances and hit on the counter in the 22nd minute, to break the deadlock.

A quick transition of play saw Bakare Ayomide race onto a long pass from Egbamuno Gabriel. The winger wasted no time in getting past his marker before firing a low shot past Chima Chinedu.

The goal was the shot in the arm Coach Ogunmoyero needed. And while their goal-scoring chances dropped, the defenders upped their ante while goalkeeper Isaac put on a fine display to maintain his side’s lead going into the break.

Escola would however draw level in the 70th minute. This time it was Moyosore’s turn to latch onto a counter-attacking move. He skillfully got past one marker before making his attempt. But his blocked shot found its way into the path of an unmarked Abass Adeniyi who did not fluff the golden opportunity.

Both sides would go on to settle for a point, with Broad City climbing into sixth and Escola remaining rooted to the bottom of the lof.

The goalkeeper was influential in keeping Broad City in the game. His goalkeeping heroics aside, Broad City would have ended the game empty-handed.
