2023/2024 NPFL Match Day 29: Ondo Sports boss Yusuf commends Sunshine Stars' resilience

Posted : 30 April 2024

Ondo State Commissioner of Youths Development and Sports, Hon. Saka Yusuf Ogunleye, has commended the players of Sunshine Stars for putting up a good fight in the 2023/2024 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) Match Day 32 tie against Shooting Stars FC of Ibadan.


The Oluyole Warriors defeated the Owena Whales 2-0, courtesy of goals from the skipper Taofeek Malomo.


The Ondo State Sports Boss, Ogunleye, who was at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan, to watch the tie, said the players gave their all, but the result did not reflect the efforts put up by his team.


He then rued missed chances in the first 45 minutes of the game.


"I'm pleased with the performance of the boys, though it's not the result we wanted, but we will keep fighting until the last day of the league," Ogunleye said.


Ogunleye said Shooting Stars were lucky not to have conceded at least two goals in the early minutes of the game.


"Our team dominated, and for the better part of the game, we were dictating the pace, but that's football for you; things like that happen. Our position on the log isn't good, but we will keep fighting.


"I must also commend the match officials; they were fair."


Sunshine Stars FC's next match is a round of 64 of the Federation Cup, now President Cup tie, against Jedo Academy at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
