footblIt was goals galore, weekend, as the Spring 2016 season of the American University of Nigeria, AUN, Intramural Soccer League kicked off at the GT Bank Field. Six teams battled for their first win of the season with the best of the weekend’s actions being the match on Sunday between two bitter rivals, Mushish FC and Shalfati FC. In the thrilling encounter, Mushish defeated Shalfati 4-0. Talismanic captain Aliyu Waziri got his team off to a perfect start when he carefully placed the ball in the bottom left corner of the post to cap an excellent counter-attack for his team. Yusuf Olabisi then capped his majestic performance with a well-timed half volley from 12 yards to give Mushish their second goal at exactly 10 minutes to the end of the first half. The second half was similar to the first, as Mushish controlled possession. However, the second-half goals did not come until Mushish’s new signing Ikechukwu Ilomuanya was introduced to the match. Attacker Ilomuanya set up his teammate Chiedozie Mbaka from a set-piece for their third goal before scoring the fourth from close range. Defending champions LXB FC had on Friday defeated the league’s new comers, African Warriors. A fine display of attacking football and control saw last semester’s champions run riot, thrashing the Warriors 5-1. Two goals from last season’s top scorer Michael Egor put the champions ahead in the opening 30 minutes,

with Ahmed Lawan, Hassan Abba and Abdulrazak Mustapha completing the scoring for the winning side. The new boys managed to grab a consolation goal close to the end of the match. It was a disappointing day for two-time SGA Cup winners Java FC on Saturday, as they were walked over for failing to field up to eleven players in their fixture against Ace FC. Manager of Java FC Mr. Demilade Kosemani blamed his team’s walkover on lack of time to prepare for the new season as well as injuries to his outfield players. He, however, vowed to scout for more players to complete his squad before their next league encounter against last season’s runners-up, Mushish FC. By Ikechukwu Ilomuanya
