Match Update: Abia Warriors FC 1-1 Diamond Football Academy

Fri, 2017-02-03 10:04 -- Uche Insonet

Another stalemate ending the same 1-1 draw as the did last year having Samuel equalize from the spot but today Gideon gave a lead also from the spot both samuel and gideon where fouled and they also found the back of the net. History repeating in different dimension.
Yesterday by 4pm Abia Warriors did host Diamond Football Academy in their home ground at Umuahia Township Stadium, A clash in which our loaned player Iroha Chukwuebuka will be player since he resumed training with the Warriors.
Our Lineup: Nwokocha Ebuka, Polycarp Amadi, Odinaka Anaeto, David Isah, Nwokoma Christain, Chima Lemechi, Adebayor Jacob, Tamara K. Samuel, Stanley Kanu, Gideon Illya, Michael Dominon.
Diamond players showed lots of team spirit, accurate passes but their advances was not on point, they game came with lots of shuffling and tackles with cards flying in the air. Gideon illya had a good dribble in the box in which he was fouled and Gideon took the shot finding the back of the net. Not long in minutes before the warriors got their confidence back with an equalizer from the left cross in which was driven to back of the net with a header.
It was indeed a disappointing game from the Diamonds for not taking advantage of the possessions and drives in the which the made. The score line replicates their last meet which ended also in a 1-1 draw but at the home of the Diamonds. In the post match interview with Head coach Matthew Chukuemeka he said they will continue to progress and build a team that can withstand any stage they find themselves still nice performance from the boys.
it was indeed a good performance and the expected Hat Trick king Stanley Kanu who has scored three hat tricks in three consecutive matches failed to find the back of the net but he is still the leading highest goal scorer for the Diamond since this Academic Football year.
