Niger Tornadoes and 3SC recorded massive victories yesterday after they thrashed Abia Warriors and Gombe United 3-0 respectively in MatchDay 15 of the ongoing Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) abridged season.
In Kaduna where Niger Tornadoes are playing their home matches, the host benefited from junior international Munir Idris’ brace and David Okoroma’s goal to beat Abia Warriors 3-0 and improve their chances of qualifying for the Super 6 playoff.
After a barren first half, Idris opened the scoring in the 54th minute and doubled Tornadoes lead after two minutes before Okoromo sealed victory with the third in the 76th minute.
At the Liberty Stadium in Ibadan, 3SC trounced Gombe United 3-0 with Malomo Taofeeq putting the hosts in front two minutes before half time. In the second half, Udoh Godwin and new signing Douglas Achiv scored a goal each in the 47th and 66th minute for the ‘Oluyole Warriors’ to win convincing.
