NPFL: Enyimba thrash Kwara as 3SC, Lobi win, perfect Insurance stay top

ENYIMBA recovered from last week’s defeat at Plateau United to record their second Nigeria Premier Football League win of the season today, beating visiting Kwara United 3-0 in Aba.

The People’s Elephant scored twice in the first half through Emeka Obioma and Adebambo Ademola and Obioma again after the break to rise to third in the Group A table.

They are five points behind surprise leaders Bendel Insurance.

The promoted Benin-based Insurance have won all their four games of this shortened campaign, as they remain the only side with a perfect 100 percent record across the two groups.

They cemented their spot at the top with a stunning 3-0 home win over Remo Stars yesterday, with the brilliant Imade Osehenkhoe scoring his fourth goal of the season.

Also today in Group A, Akwa United defeated Plateau United 1-0 in Uyo, the same score with which Shooting Stars beat El-Kanemi Warriors in Ibadan.

The only draw in the group today was between Gombe United and Nasarawa United, who played 1-1.

In Group B, Kumaga Suur scored twice as Lobi Stars thrashed visitors Bayelsa United 3-0 to rise to second spot behind champions Rivers United.

In the other games in the group, Sunshine Stars edged past Abia Warriors 1-0 in Akure, with the encounters between Niger Tornadoes and Enugu Rangers as well as Wikki Tourists and Doma United both ending goalless.
