NPFL: Mighty Jets Int'l fight back to snatch a point off El-Kanemi Warriors FC

Posted : 22 January 2024

Following a 0-0 draw against the nation's anti-graft agency's team, EFCC FC, in Abuja a fortnight ago, Mighty Jets INT'L FC of Jos turned their attention to a crucial Match Day 08 affair at home against Elkanemi Warriors FC.

Despite full-blown preparations for the match, the team found themselves inexplicably 0-1 down in just the first five minutes of proceedings through Ajiji Gimba of Elkanemi Warriors FC.

With calm nerves and great foresight, Mighty Jets Int'l FC continued to push for an equalizer against the stiff-necked visitors.

Things took a turn for the worse before the half-hour mark as the visitors scored their second goal of the evening.

In an attempt to draw inspiration, Najib Mabo looked to his bench, summoning Eric Gwammy and Ahmed Ajini, while Simon Elijah and Nansel Selbol made way for the aforementioned duo.

Despite Mighty Jets Int'l's efforts to rally back early on, the first half ended 0-2 in favor of the visitors.

Upon the resumption of hostilities, Mighty Jets Int'l began to reap some rewards for their hard work, with Samuel Nanjuan scoring in the 78th minute through a tap-in off a remarkable interchange in the area.

A few more substitutions from Coach Mabo appeared to stretch the Warriors' defense, and it collapsed again in the 88th minute through a long throw from Nenpes Jonathan that fell at the foot of Mahmoud Abubakar. He made no mistake in taking the glorious chance to ensure his team took a point from the fixture.

Mighty Jets Int'l FC is currently 4th on the log in Northern Conference C.
