The defeat of Apapa by Lagos Island at the Campos Square Mini Stadium on SaturdayÂ was like the case of biblical David who disgraced Goliath.
Group B leaders, Apapa Golden Stars, failed to shine in their match against bottomÂ placed Lagos Island.
The Eko side, playing on home turf took the game to Apapa who clearlyÂ underestimated their opponents. ApapaÂ paid dearly for under estimating Lagos IslandÂ as they fell 2-1 in theÂ match dominated by a determined Island side.
Eko Akete United started the game as if their life depended on it, passing withÂ accuracy to the delight of their supporters in the stadium, while Apapa struggledÂ 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 ApapaÂ Golden Stars were more organised in the second half. They capitalised on a defensiveÂ error of the Island boys in the 71st minute, when a player in number 14 jersey, OjoÂ Ehenemi Abba scored the first goal of his side. But this was not enough to dampenÂ the spirit of the Eko boys. Instead it charged them as they made an amazing comebackÂ through Femi Innocent, who scored a brace in the 87th and 90th minute to sendÂ theirÂ supporters into a wild jubilation. The result no doubt has put a spanner in theÂ works for the Apapa side and their quest to top the group.
In other fixtures, Ikorodu Central white-washed Igbogbo Baiyeku 7-2 to continueÂ their amazing form. The Ayanguren Warriors have now scored 19 goals in their lastÂ three games.
