Five-star Imperial brush past Broad City

Imperial zoomed to second spot on the log with a comprehensive victory over Broad City.

After dominating the opening minutes of the game, Imperial stamped their authority on the clash by scoring in the 17th minute. After a lovely build-up of play from the back, Joel Ashuku connected well with a low cross into the box and tapped home from close range.

The hosts were still trying to find their feet, and their struggles were made evident by the clumsiness of the wingers and strikers going forward. They paid dearly for their incompetence as Imperial doubled their lead in the 32nd minute through Musa Abdulmaleek..

The hosts had no answers for all the questions Imperial asked in the first half. And the trend continued in the second half as Imperial got a third after a mix up at the back.

The hosts would go on to pull one back in the 54th minute as Ezugwu Uche pounced on a defensive error and fired home from a distance. However, all their hard work was undone by an own goal and another Maleek goal to bring Imperial’s tally to five.

For Imperial, their impressive goal-scoring streak continues. As for the hosts, they go back to the drawing board to figure things out.
