Bankers Games: UBA out, Fidelity feast on Heritage
Winger, Charles Brendan scored the only goal of the fixture in the first half, hitting a perfectly aimed shot to beat the goalkeeper. All efforts by UBA to come back into the game was rebuffed by a cohesive Standard Chartered backline and it would have ended 2-0 but for a late miss by Funlola Oni, who failed to score in a one-on-one situation with UBA goalkeeper, Shola Thomas.
The biggest win of the weekend was recorded by free scoring Fidelity Bank that ran riots, netting four past Heritage Bank’s goalkeeper, Tunde Adeniyi on a day brightened his chances of emerging top scorer after hitting a brace.
First Bank continued their run of good form by piping ECOBANK 1-0 in a game that saw the two sides fighting to dominate possession.
After a goalless first half, First Bank broke the deadlock on 47th minute through Yakasai Kabuiru, who converted from the spot after Seun Oloniyo was brought down in the box.
