First Bank Consolidates, As Amazons, Warriors bag First win at the Dr. & Mrs. D.K Olukoya Women's Basketball Championship

 First Bank Consolidates, As Amazons, Warriors bag First win at the Dr. & Mrs. D.K Olukoya Women's Basketball Championship.

On a glamorous day 3 of proceedings at the inaugural Dr. & Mrs. D.K Olukoya Women's Basketball Championship in Lagos. Powerhouse First Bank Basketball club dimed the light of Sunshine Angels with an emphatic 52-36 points win. The Lateef Erinfolami led Elephant girls knocked off a rusty start with just 8 points in the first quarter (8-16), however, reacted to some hair drier treatment after a time out to take a 26-19 advantage into the halftime break. Inspired by John Grace and Murijanatu Musa who put up 15 & 12 points respectively. Sunshine's fightback in the 3rd and 4th quarter (11-12); ( 6-17) could help keep the Akure side off the jaws of defeat.

In the other games, two teams battling for their first win of the tournament between Raptors Girls of Surulere and War Queens of Sango Ota. The Stadium girls as they are fondly called were the more composed of the two sides bagging a 63-48 points win over the Peter Akindele tutored team. The young War Queens outscored Raptors in the 2nd and 3rd quarters (11-10) and (16-13) but ran out of legs to finish strong, as they were outscored 21-10 in the 4th quarter.

The shocking result of the day was the valiant 63-51 points victory of Coach Dossu Mensah's Warriors Amazon of Ilupeju over the much experienced but match rusty Inspector General of Police Queens. A very edgy first quarter (18-17) followed by an offensive collapse in the 2nd and 3rd quarters (7- 14); (10-14) game the Amazons' what proved to be an unassailable 10 points lead and win. 

Day-4 of the inaugural Dr. & Mrs. D.K Olukoya Women's Basketball Championship at the Teslim Balogun Stadium will start with a battle for runners up behind First Bank in group B for Sunshine Angels as they battle War Queens of Ota at 10:00 am, Delta Force will lock horns with Warriors Amazon at 11:30 am. Raptors will have a tall order to wrap up a second win over First Bank at 1:00 pm and the last game of the day will see IGP Queens try to arrest the Shade Olukoya Girls, MFM at 2:30 PM on Thursday

 MFM record first ever  victory over Enyimba Int’l

For the first time in their history, Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministries FC beat seven-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Enyimba, 1-0 in Matchday 15 rescheduled fixture played on Thursday at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium.

The Olukoya Boys bounce back to winning ways as they boost their chances of survival with the win over the visitors after three consecutive defeats to Akwa United, Rivers United and Kano Pillars.

Before the match, Enyimba were on eight games unbeaten run in the league but they failed to beat the Olukoya Boys as Ebenezer Odeyemi earned his team the crucial win with a 22nd strike.

Speaking after the game, MFM FC interim coach Gabriel Olalekan showered praises on his team for the crucial victory over Enyimba.

“It was a tough game but I must give kudos to my boys for their performance today.

“ I think everyone is excited with this victory and I’m as well too because it’s an important one. We were at 17th position on the league table before the game but now we have moved to 14th spot.

“We just have to build on this victory as we approach other matches with the right mentality and I believe the sky will be our starting point.

The win has taken MFM to 14th place on the log  with 20 points from possible 51 points from 17 NPFL games. They will face Jigawa Golden Stars in their next league match at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna State.
