Dino SC claimed a resounding 4-1 win over visiting side Emmydinho at the Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu Ode on Sunday.
Having lost their TCC Cup opener, Godson Gibson’s boys sought to put that result behind them against a side they put five past last season in the league.
Dino flew out of the blocks early on and were rewarded with a penalty, but the resultant spot-kick was missed. Meanwhile, that did not stop them from going ahead in the 19th minute through Hyacinth Ogonna’s goal. Emmydinho offered a bit of resistance and held their own till the halftime break.
The goals came aplenty after the interval. Firstly, Oparaocha Chidera dragged the visitors level five minutes into the second half. However, Adekunle Elijah took charge from there on, as he netted a hattrick in 56th, 63rd and 77th minute to take the game away from Emmanuel Ayeni’s boys.
Although the visitors had a man sent off late in the game, Dino ran out winners, while Emmydinho remained without a win in their TCC Cup history.
