Abia Warriors 1-2 Sunshine: Owena Waves snatch away win

Abia Warriors

Sunshine Stars continued their recent upsurge in form as they snatched all three points on the road against Abia Warriors.

The Owena Waves had defeated Wikki Tourist 3-1 in the week-18 of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) and on the last day of the first stanza produced the only away win.

The Ochendo Warriors lost 2-0 away to Shooting Stars of Ibadan heading into the game and were desperate to put on a good show for the home fans but it was the away side that scored first as Rasaq Adegbite capitalized on a defensive error to tuck home for 1-0.

Obinna Eric Nwaimo gave the home fans some joy when he equalized but Sunshine failed to read the script as Dele Olorundare netted the winner on the dot of 90 minutes to hand the Owena Waves an impressive win.

Sunshine Stars are now tenth on the log with 27points while Abia Warriors sit sixth with 30points.
