Kwara United went top of the log after beating Dakkada 3-0 at the Kwara Township Stadium.
Wasiu Alalade gave the harmony boys the lead in the 14th minute after scoring from the follow-up after Dakkada goalkeeper kept out the initial attempt from Taiwo Salaudeen.
Kwara United doubled their lead in the 72nd minute from Michael Ohanu’s volley, and 10 minutes to the end of regulation time, Alao Danbani added the gloss on the win for the Harmony boys.
