Beyond Limits and Real Sapphire maintain 100% record

Just before going for the mid-season break, all 12 teams were in action, fighting for points in the TCC Cup.

In Group A, the trend of games ending in a stalemate continued, with two of the three games finishing without a winner.

Despite their impressive league run, Imperial failed to get the better of Sporting Lagos. Both sides, having drawn their first cup game of the season, ended the year by sharing the spoils.

Gbagada was the only team to get a win in the group, coming from behind against Dino. Despite conceding in the fourth minute of the game, Coach Akinyelu’s men equalized in the 37th minute. Semiu Fagbayi rose highest in the 18-yard area to draw his side level. He was again on hand, five minutes from time, to double his tally, and win the game for his side.

The Blue Eagles are the only side with a win in Group A.

Beyond Limits made it two wins in two, getting the better of Iganmu this time. They’re the only side in the competition yet to concede a goal. Speaking of clean sheets, Atlantic Business got their business done when they faced Escola. A goal in each half, both unreplied, was enough to earn Atlantic their first TCC Cup win of the season.

Beyond Limits may have scored seven goals in the competition. But they’re closely followed by Real Sapphire, whose two goals against Valiant took their TCC Cup tally to six goals.

Emmanuel Flomo opened the scoring in the 22nd minute before Maleek equalized in the 40th minute. Olalekan’s 60th-minute goal was enough to earn the newcomers their second win of their maiden cup campaign.

While Beyond Limits and Real Sapphire are top of Group B, Valiant and Escola are still searching for their first win. Unlike MatchDay 1, only two teams failed to score across six games: Escola and Iganmu.
