Amateur team beats Rangers to Enugu Federation Cup title
It was really a bad day at the office for the coach Olugbenga Ogunbote’ wards, who took an early lead through Uche Nwofor, but could not contain their more determined opponents.
Osogu Onyinye grabbed the equaliser on 33 minutes, while Ezeh Adimoramma nodded in the backbreaking goal and match winner on 82 minutes to the wild jubilation of the Police team’s numerous supporters.
Late efforts by Rangers to wrestle the chestnut out of the burning fire did not yield any dividend as the backline of the amateur side stood firm.
Despite the loss, the third time since 1991, Rangers still qualified to take part in the 2018 national Aiteo Cup as both teams had earlier picked the tickets to represent the state at the oldest club football competition in the country.
