Nigerian League: Sunshine Stars trash Kano Pillars

Sunshine stars of Akure

Nigeria’s Premier league defending champion, Kano Pillars, lost 3-0 to Sunshine stars during a week 22 encounter on Sunday in Akure.

Musa Newman of Sunshine stars put the host ahead with a goal in the 43rd minute of the match, few minutes before the first half ended.

Newman again scored a brace at the 62nd minute of the match while Prince Aggreh scored the third goal at extra time. All efforts made by Kano Pillars to score a goal were unsuccessful.

Kano Pillars Coach, Okey Emordi, told journalists after the match that he would work harder on his team.

“We are still top (of the league table). Now we’ll have to return and work hard once again,”

Sunshine Stars coach, Henry Nwosu, said his team refused to give the defending champion any single space to outplay them during the encounter. “We had a lot of chances and we were all over them. We never allowed them time and space to play,”
One time league champion, Enyimba, got a 1-1 away draw when they visited Rangers International in Enugu.
