Lagos Junior League: Kosofe Drub Epe-Alaro Lagos Junior League: Kosofe Drub Epe-Alaro


Kosofe FC got all three points at stake in their match against Epe Alaro FC in one the matches of the Lagos Junior League played at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, last weekend.

Kosofe overpowered Epe Alaro 3-2 in the grudged encounter. Epe hardly mustered a shot on goal in the first half, as they were completely outplayed and their defeat might have been embarrassing but for a string of poor finishing from Arabambi Yomi of Kosofe.

Okeowo Debo of Kosofe kept the Epe defence on alert all evening with his dribbling runs, and timely passes and deservedly scored the opening goal of the game in the 6th minute. Yomi, however, missed so many chances even when it seemed easier to score; but finally had his way in the 22nd minute to double Kosofe’s lead.
