Dino back to winning ways as Real Sapphire suffer back-to-back losses

Dino recorded a hard-fought victory against Real Sapphire in their MatchDay 8 TCC League encounter.

The hosts started the game the better side – going forward and also defending. But for all of their hard work, Coach Gibson’s men had nothing to show for it until the 44th minute.

Amos Adzuu interrupted an attempt by the visitors to play out from the back. Racing towards goal, he squared the ball towards an onrushing Ogonna Okoro who fired home from close range.

For Dino, a deserved lead. For Real Sapphire, a deserved deficit as they had been second best the entire half. The struggles stretched into the second half as Coach Bidemi’s side laboured to match their hosts.

During the time, Dino grew into the game and scored a second 13 minutes from time. Amos Adzuu, this time, was on hand to beat the offside trap and make the most of the one-on-one situation.

They were however denied a clean sheet as David Shadrach’s low shot from outside the area evaded everyone on its way into the net. But the second-half substitute’s goal was not enough as they was no comeback for the visitors.

The No. 10 made himself a handful for the defenders with his pace, dribbles and goal attempts.
