Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan displayed a great character to overcome a stubborn Vandrezzer FC of Lagos, leaving it late to win by 1-0, thus completing a double over the host who had fell 0-2 to the Ibadan soccer lords in the first round.
The coach Edith Agoye led technical crew had to dig deep to find a solution to the resistance of the Lions, who upped their game to curtail the Oluyole Warriors in the NNL Group B1 matchday 13 tie played at the Agege Township Stadium.
Substitute Raheem Quadry, emerged the hero, scoring the only goal, three minutes into added time, to break the heart of the host and ensured the Stars returned to winning ways after drawing their last two fixtures against Ekiti United.
The highly tactical game was full of anxious moments as both sides made efforts to carry the day.
Heroic performance by goalkeeper Charles Tambe, good defensive network by the quartet of Abbey Benson, Elum Henry, Amodu Nurudeen and Muritala Taiwo, energetic display by Gbadamosi Fatai Akilu Muhammed, Abayomi Adebayo in the midfield and a spirited effort by the strike force of Olafimihan Gafar, Chinedu Enuademu and Osagahae Junior was too hard for the hard fighting Vandrezzer to handle.
