2023/2024 NPFL Match Day 22: Bendel Insurance succumbs to 3SC in Ibadan

Posted : 02 March 2024

Bendel Insurance Football Club of Benin conceded a late goal on Thursday, surrendering all points to arch-rivals Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan in Match Day 22 of the Nigeria Premier Football League after a good fight at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan.

Muritala Taiye scored the only goal of the match, delivering the three maximum points for the Oluyole Warriors in the second minute of five minutes of added time after the 90 minutes of regulation time had elapsed.

The defender found the back of the net by heading home a poorly cleared ball near the box of the Benin Arsenal, following a scramble. He nodded the ball beyond the reach of Amas Obasogie when some fans and supporters of the hosts were already making their exit in frustration.

The Benin Arsenals were unlucky to get any breakthrough against Shooting Stars earlier, despite creating many scoring chances in the game. Sarki Ismael and Divine Nwachukwu's one-on-one moments with Shooting Stars' goalkeeper Okemute between the 60th and 70th minutes of play were good chances not well taken.

Julius Emiloju's long-range strike that hit the woodwork shortly before the halftime whistle was another missed opportunity that could have given Insurance the lead.

Bendel Insurance began the current football season with a convincing 2-0 victory over Shooting Stars in the first round in Benin.

The Benin Arsenals will now shift their focus to their next match, another away fixture against Plateau Utd on Sunday, as they continue to find a way out of their goal drought situation.
