It was second placed Remo Stars against visiting third Dino SC at the Remo Stars Stadium in the opening game of week 5 of the Creative Championship.


The home side, as they have always done in previous games, were expected to dominated proceedings and create chances for fun, but reverse was the case against the visitors in the opening half.


Dino SC had great opportunities to go ahead through Hyacinth Okoro, Chidera Chukwuemeka and Ikechukwu Henry, but the trio all fluffed the chances that came their way. They simply limited Remo Stars to playing in their own half, while they kept it tight at the back and difficult for the attack of the home side to tick in the final third.


After the goalless, yet entertaining first half of action. Remo Stars gaffer Olumide Ajibolade introduced his side’s top scorer Shola Ogundana. From that moment on, it became attack against defence, with the visitors showing their credentials as the side with the meanest defence and incredible organisation at the back led by the skipper Afolayan Peter.


After incredible 70 minutes of tactical battle and ingenuity, Dino lost concentration at the back and they were punished severely by Ogunadana. The winger found himself in acres of space in the area and as the ball was rolled to him by Hayatou Suleiman, he curled it into the top corner with his left-foot beyond the goalkeeper’s reach for the game’s opener.


Dino kept pushing once more, but their attackers couldn’t sort out themselves as they missed yet another big chance to draw level. With eight minutes from time, a cross into the box was turned home by Segun Egbewole into his own net and that was it for Coach Godwin Gibson’s lads.


Remo Stars have now won four consecutive games after the opening day defeat, while Dino SC conceded more than a goal for the first time in the #TCCLeague this season.



Remo Stars’ Shola Ogundana proved to be the deciding factor in the game. Besides his goal, his runs and movements caused havoc in the opposition’s box on multiple occasions. Well deserved.
