With the clock ticking out faster like the previous round, Ogunbote pulled a master stroke with some final period changes, which included the introduction of Akinlose who delivered a delightful ball for Sadeeq Yusuf to score and secure the win in the last minute of regulation time.
“Victory at last; it was a hard-earned one and it would have been a big set back if we didn’t get the three points,” Ogunbote who is on his second stint with the Owena Whales said post-match.
“I salute the resilience, the courage and determination of my boys.”
“I knew we were going to have a little challenge as regards fatigue. We are making best use of the situation we have found ourselves.
“Sadeeq? We pray he continues with his goal exploit.”
