Ahmed Musa scores the solitary goal in a 1-0 win over St. Monica U16s in the Tsenba Wummen League as MPFA U14s trash Vet Glory
Ahmed Musa proved to be the difference in the top-of-the-table clash between Mees Palace Football Academy (MPFA) U16s and St. Monica U16s in the Tsemba Wummen League to move the team to within one match of claiming the league title.
In what was an unchanged lineup from last week 2-1 win over Jeddy Academy, coach of the side Longji Mikuk kept faith with the same players, and just like he got his 40th goal last week, Musa popped up with a fine strike in the 48th min to slot the ball past Manji, who manned the post for St. Monica.
Both sides had slugged it out in the first half with the best effort coming to Umar Bala, whose shot from outside the box just went narrowly wide. Chris Yusuf then had a go at Manji with back-to-back half-chances, but his goal drought continues stretching back to matchday 26.
St. Monica tried to rally back late on, but their onslaught was well thwarted by our defense marshaled by Freeman Ndu, who was playing back-to-back matches for the first time since the first stanza of the season.
Elsewhere, the U14 boys were in seventh heaven as they put eight goals past Vet glory in a matchday 28 fixture in the league. Isreal Davou continued his impressive goal-scoring form as he notched two goals in the 8-0 win. Destiny Lar, Alvin Ajik, Fabian Peter, and a debut goal for Nwachukwu Chibuke were enough to keep us at the top of the league table.
