Venue: Agege Stadium

Full-time: Valiant FC 2 - Imperial FC 1

Valiant moved top of the Creative Championships with a victory against Imperial at the Agege Stadium in the final game of Matchday 2. 


The hosts glowing in white and buoyed by their opening day victory in Ijebu Ode flew out of the blocks on their turf, with striker Lukman Ibrahim particularly eager to add to his goal tally. He would do so in the 24th minute, collecting a fine pass from Ifeoluwa Agboola before tucking the ball beyond the goalie for his third of the competition to take him joint top of the scorers chart. Lukman will definitely be a thorn in the flesh of opposition defenders all through this tournament. 


However, it took barely a minute for the visitors to respond with Melody Idase finishing beyond the sprawling host goalkeeper; giving Imperial their first goal in TCCLeague. It gave them impetus to push forward, However, it was Ifeoluwa Agboola, who provided the first goal that would have the final say on the game, restoring Valiant’s lead just before the break with a fine finish. 


The visitors would spend the entire second half pressing for an equalizer to no avail, and finish the week a point above the basement boys.
