Okiki’s Brace Gives Sunshine Stars Win over Wikki

0

It was a battle of strikers when hosts Sunshine Stars beat Wikki Tourists 3-1 as Nigeria league leading scorer Godwin Obaje netted his 12th goal of the season with Afolabi Okiki grabbing a brace to take his tally to 10 goals.
Obaje restored parity for Wikki in the 40th minute after Sunshine took the lead in the 29th minute, when Okiki slotted home a penalty.

Okiki proved to be the sharper striker on the day when he produced the winning goal in the 53rd minute via a superb header off a pullout.

Skipper Sunday Abe then made the game safe for Sunshine with a third goal in the 84th minute.
In stoppage time, Okiki would have completed his hat-trick, but he failed to beat the Wikki goalkeeper when he came face-to-face with him.
