Valiant FC 2 - 0 Broad City FC

Both sides started the game in slow fashion, guilty of throwing away several goal-scoring chances. It was a half of plenty of midfield play and profligacy whenever the chances presented themselves.


The best chances of the half fell to Valiant after a series of near exchange of passes. However, Valiant were not as clinical up front, and hence, the game remained in a deadlock as both sides went into the break.


Valiant started the second half with a substitution, as Hassan Haddi came on. The same was responsible for their opening goal as Valiant started the half on the front foot.


It was the wake up call the visitors needed as they pressed hard for an equalizer in the minutes that followed the goal.


Their efforts were however frustrated by poor decisions in the final third. They’d be made to rue these missed chances as Hassan Haddi got a second for himself.


Capitalizing on a mistake by the Broad City defense, the super sub made a run towards goal, and sent his shot past goalkeeper Lawrence Williams in a one-on-one situation, beating him at his near post.


Haddi was guilty of passing on the chance to get his hat-trick few minutes later as he sent the ball after finding himself with the ball at his feet in the opponent’s 18-yard area. The home team, at the end of the day, picked up three vital points needed for the upward climb on the log table.
