The defeat of Apapa by Lagos Island at the Campos Square Mini Stadium on Saturday  was like the case of biblical David who disgraced Goliath.

Group B leaders, Apapa Golden Stars, failed to shine in their match against bottom  placed Lagos Island.

The Eko side, playing on home turf took the game to Apapa who clearly  underestimated their opponents. Apapa  paid dearly for under estimating Lagos Island  as they fell 2-1 in the  match dominated by a determined Island side.

Eko Akete United started the game as if their life depended on it, passing with  accuracy to the delight of their supporters in the stadium, while Apapa struggled  with the pace of the game throughout the first half.

The home team failed to find the back of the net in the first half. Then, the Apapa  Golden Stars were more organised in the second half. They capitalised on a defensive  error of the Island boys in the 71st minute, when a player in number 14 jersey, Ojo  Ehenemi Abba scored the first goal of his side. But this was not enough to dampen  the spirit of the Eko boys. Instead it charged them as they made an amazing comeback  through Femi Innocent, who scored a brace in the 87th and 90th minute to send  their  supporters into a wild jubilation. The result no doubt has put a spanner in the  works for the Apapa side and their quest to top the group.

In other fixtures, Ikorodu Central white-washed Igbogbo Baiyeku 7-2 to continue  their amazing form. The Ayanguren Warriors have now scored 19 goals in their last  three games.

Agege Giants recovered from their mid-week flop to win 3-2 against Orile Agege at  Alade Stadium in Ojokoro LCDA.

Idi Olowo Ojuwoye beat Ejigbo 5-3, while  Apapa Iganmu and Ikoyi Obalende played a  barren draw.
