Nath Boys 7-2 Glory Boys
Glory Boys were embarrassed by Nath Boys 7-2 in the Lagos State FA Cup on Thursday.
Braces from Peter Okwoli, Macaulay Okoliugo and Okorie Chukwuebuka added to a strike from substitute, Biola Opeolu were enough to give Nath Boys a much deserved victory.
Glory Boys started the game on the back foot as Okwoli’s sixth minute goal unsettled them and Okoliugo added one just a minute past the half-hour mark. On the brink of half time, Lateef Teslim pulled one back for Glory Boys.
After the interval, Glory Boys crumbled woefully as Okwoli and Okoliugo completed their brace with Chukwuebuka soon getting in on the act with two of his own and Opeolu, off the bench, added his. Olaleye Akeem also got one back for the Glory Boys as the game ended 7-2.
