Wasiu Jimoh’s hat-trick helps Shooting Stars down NPFL high flyers MFM FC

The much anticipated fixture in the NPFL between Shooting Stars of Ibadan and Nigeria Professional Football League’s high flyers, MFM FC, was just like a script written by Kadiri Ikhana and acted by Wasiu Jimoh and co.


Having won back to back games after gaining promotion to the NPFL, MFM FC went to Ibadan full of confidence and hope of maintaining their winning streak while Shooting Stars were looking for their first win.

Three minutes into the game Orelope fired from the edge of the box but MFM FC keeper Aiyeyemi put up a wonderful save to deny Shooting Stars the opening goal. A minute after Aiyeyemi ‘s save, his terrible mistake gifted Wasiu Jimoh the opportunity to put Shooting Stars ahead with their second shot on target and he made no mistake converting the chance.
The two teams continued to push for the kill but it was Shooting Stars who got the breakthrough as Wasiu Jimoh’s effort from outside the box beat MFM FC keeper to make it his, and Shooting Stars’ second of the day.
Shooting Stars remained the better of the two teams, exchanging passes and looking for more goals. Their possessive pattern of play paid off when Wasiu Jimoh got his third of the night and the first hat-trick of the NPFL season.
MFM FC threw caution into the wind to reduce the deficit but Shooting Stars commanding first half display was good enough to earn them all the three points and their first win of the new season.
