NPFL: MFM Overcome Tornadoes In Five-Goal Thriller
MFM FC came from behind to claim an unbelievable 3-2 triumph over Niger Tornadoes in a Matchday 8 fixture of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) played on Sunday at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium.
Defender Abisoye Olawale posted a worthy performance that earned him the Man-Of-The-Match award in the game.
Tornadoes took the lead two minutes into the first half through Peter Abashiya and got the second in the 10th minute of the exchange when Osondu Jonathan's curling effort from outside the box beat Jerry Isaac in goal.
The Olukoya Boys later soaked the pressure from the visitors and went forward on few occasions in search of a goal to spark a comeback.
With less than three minutes to end the first half, Abisoye reduced the deficit for his team with a fine tap in after connecting a long throw in from Jonathan Zikiye.
Fidelis Ilechukwu and his youthful side came out strong in the second half and put the Minna-based team to the sword with two unreplied goals from Michael Ohanu and a last-minute beautiful effort from Kenedinum Chuks.
