Gbagada Outlasted by Dannaz in Seven-Goal Thriller
Dannaz came out on top in their clash against Gbagada as they recorded yet another win.
The not-so-newcomers to the TCC started the game on the front foot, with Savio Idezi adding to his goal tally in as early as the 30th minute. Before then, the contest had been pretty much slightly even, with both sides starting out cautiously.
That’d be the only goal of the half, with the second giving way to a flood of goals.
Staring defeat in the face, the Blue Eagles rose up to the occasion. And in the 47th minute, they drew level, with substitute Solomon Eya on hand to send the ball into the net after a scramble in the Dannaz 18-yard area.
One quickly became two for Gbagada in the 50th minute as Semiu Fagbayi handed Coach Akinyelu’s men the lead with a header from close range.
Not wanting to give Gbagada any breathing space, Dannaz quickly drew level as Ifeanyi Obi put one past Kabiru Ramon in the 52nd minute. A lack of concentration on Gbagada’s part meant Ifeanyi Obi got his second of the day, just five minutes after his first.
The goal fiesta continued for Dannaz as substitute Idris Olori got in on the action, getting a goal for himself in the 72nd minute. In a bid to stop the away team from running away with the game, Ademola Akibu pulled one back for his side, scoring their third in the 73rd, via yet another header.
The rest of the game would see Gbagada press for an equaliser, all to no avail. Massive win for Dannaz as they increase their points tally.
