Dino Score Eight at Home Again as Escola Suffer Heavy Defeat

For a second time this season, Dino recorded an emphatic home victory by scoring eight goals.

The hosts, up against bottom side Escola, put their opponents to the sword in the goal fest. However, the first goal didn’t come until the 34th minute, after Johnson Unanah had missed a penalty.

Stephen Ende tapped in from close range after Amos Adzuu has popped the ball over the keeper’s head. Six minutes later, Hassan Agbede was felled in the 18-yard area and Dino got another penalty. Amos Adzuu stepped up and converted. Then Dino opened the floodgates of goals in the second half.

Second-half substitute, Ikechukwu Friday scored the first of his five-minute hat-trick from the spot. The striker, who was roughed up by Oluwasegun Adebisi, shook off the dust and converted.

Another second-half substitute, Chidubem Diji, got in the scoring action in the 78th minute. This was followed by Patrick’s goal which came in the sixth minute of additional time. An exceptional feat for Dino as they continue to keep the log leaders within sight.


Maduboko Henry (Dino)

He had a hand in most of the goals scored. His ball control and interception made it a difficult day at the office for Escola players.
