Goals galore at NOGIG 2020


Second day of the preliminary rounds of the football event of the 2020 Nigeria Oil and Gas Industry Games produced high-scoring results as the strikers netted 15 goals in four matches.

Yet strikers of two teams, EROTON and AGIP were on holiday, as they couldn’t find the net. And both teams lost their matches.

In an apparent display of aggression, SEPLAT set the tone in the early morning fixture when they defeated hapless DPR with an emphatic 5-1 victory.

In the second match, CHEVRON overwhelmed hard-fighting NCDMB 2-1 to strengthen their hope for a semi-finals berth as they prepare to face NNPC in a decisive second match, which will determine their chances of advancing in the competition.

Shell, who were held to a goaless draw in the opening day by TOTAL, yesterday made a mincemeat of EROTON, recording a 4-0 victory.

The last match of the day saw NLNG defeating AGIP 2-0 with goals from Patrick Oguntoye and Haruna Ogweda.

In continuation of the matches today, CHEVRON will trade tackles with NNPC, EROTON and TOTAL will lock horns in the mid-morning fixture, while NAOC and ExxonMobil take to the pitch in the lunchtime fixture. DPR and PTI will play the last match of the day at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium, Lagos.
