3SC qualify for NPFL U-15 quarterfinal, Remo, ABS fight for spot
On Day 4 of the NPFL U-15 Promises tournament, Shooting Stars retained their lead on the log despite a draw with MFM, but it was Remo Stars that made a big mark winning their very first game of the tournament.

Remo are now on four points while ABS are ahead on six points and victory for either sides would guarantee the winner progression to the last eight of the tournament.
Remo Stars struggled in their previous two fixtures, losing to group leaders, Shooting Stars and drawing 1-1 with MFM. But against the junior Akure Gunners, Dayo Awotoye struck a brilliant brace to help Remo Stars banish the voodoo of not winning at the Osogbo City Stadium.
In the second game at Oshogbo centre, table toppers Shooting Stars missed an opportunity to maintain 100 percent success when they let go a goal lead to play out a draw with MFM FC.
MFM FC have completed their fixtures in the tournament finishing on five points from four matches, while Shooting Stars will play the whipping boys of the group, Sunshine Stars that have lost all three matches in the competition.
