It was the Nath Boys who  got the first taste  of blood with Yemi Jimoh in jersey number 9. He released a powerful volley the was parried against the  crossbar  by the Apapa goalkeeper, who was alert. Apapa also had their chance at the other end as Wahab Habeeb  (9) also hit the woodwork.

As the half wore on the Golden Star took control of the midfield with Sunday Abalo and his teammates  invading the area and creating a flurry of chances. The first half ended goalless but not without  entertainment.
