A very exciting, action packed opening game of NLO Super 8 between Doma Utd and Junior Danburam Fc produced three goals, as Doma Utd triumphed 2-1 to pick the maximum points.
Doma Utd were the dominant side in the opening minutes of the game and Hilary Ekawu was very clinical to put his side ahead in the 11th minute.
Despite all the pressure and more chances Doma Utd created, Danburam Fc defenders were resolute to ensure the team did not concede another goal as the first half ended 1-0.
It was a different ball game in the second half when Danburam Fc gave no one the reason to doubt, their intention to equalise. Farouk Ibrahim in goal for Doma Utd was kept very busy with the attacking forays of the Katsina based team.
Umar Abdullahi gave his side something to cheer with his beautiful equaliser in the 63rd minute. There was no doubt that the game was very explosive with an end to end attacking football from both sides.
And when it appears that the game may witness a score draw affair, Ekawu, who had been the chief tormentor of Danburam was hacked down inside the box, which the referee signalled to the spot.
The resultant penalty kick taken 10 minutes to the end of regulation time was dispatched into the net by Adamu Danjuma, who sent Henry Timothy in goal for Danburam to the wrong way.
Doma Utd held on to their lead strongly to ensure that maximum points lies in their favour at the end of 90 minutes.
