Imperial FC 7 - 1 Escola United
Seven-Star Imperial Make Light Work of Escola
Imperial were the biggest winners of the fifth round of TCC League games as they put seven past Escola.
Coach Adedeji’s side opened the scoring in the 21st minute of the game through Joel Ashikin before Chidera doubled Imperial’s lead in the 35th minute through a sumptuous goal.
Not satisfied with their first half showing, Imperial pressed for a third. They got their breakthrough in the 54th minute through Eric Ologo who found space to slot the ball home. Three quickly became four as Bashir Abdulkareem was on hand to knock the ball home.
Escola pulled one back immediately through Rasheed Jimoh, a second half substitute, who added much-needed vigour to the attack after coming on. Vitalized by their first, they went in search of a second, pouring forward in their numbers.
Imperial took advantage of the situation and got a fifth in the 78th minute through Joel (his second), before scoring another two in three minutes to round up the biggest win margin of the season so far.
