NLO Division One: Rahbam FC Still Leads The Pack, Mafeng FC Dashed The Super 8 Hope Of Ben Akwuegbu FC As Mighty Jets And Rovers Slug It Out Today


    The New Jos Stadium yesterday hosted Match Day 4 of the NLO Division One F1A as two games went down with great piece of football artistries.

    An astonishing performance by Mafeng FC added more Pressure on an unimpressive Ben Akwuegbu FC side who have garnered no point in the league thus far.

    Dong Bala Sunday netted in the 24th minute of the encounter to hand the Barkin Ladi based side a well deserved victory as it ended 1:0 in favour of Mafeng FC.

    Meanwhile Ben Akwuegbu FC who had their chances but weren’t ruthless in front of goal have themselves to blame, as they witnessed their forth straight loss in a bounce in this current campaign.

    In the second match of the day, Jan Caleb’s opener in the 49th minute looked to be all Maichibi FC needed to claim the victory but Oscar Sati of Deluxe FC restore parity in the 66th minute to bring the game to 1:1 draw.

    Deluxe FC turn up having suffered a 4:1 defeat in the hands of Vet Rovers. Though not the result they wanted, a point at this stage against an ambitious Maichibi United side may proof vital for Deluxe FC going in to the next encounter.

    The Third Match of the day was rescheduled for this morning as NPFL side, Rivers United FC, who are on their way to Bauchi stopped by to make use of the pitch late yesterday evening.

    As it stands RAHBAM FC tops the table with 9points having won all their three matches played thus far; they are followed by Vet ROVERS in second position with 6points, three teams are tied on 4points each but Maichibi United are in third position on the league standings based on goals difference. They followed by Mafeng FC who are 4th. Deluxe FC are 5th while Mighty Jets Feeders are in 6th position having played just two matches so far. In the case of the whipping boys of the group, Ben Akwuegbu FC, they are comfortably seated at the 7th position after loosing all their four matches played.
