Ovunda Darlintin, Shaibu Abdulrasaq emerge MOTM in Value Jet Cup:

In the ongoing Value Jet Cup 2023 at the Ikenne Stadium in Kogi state, the star goalkeeper of Shooting Stars, Ovunda Darlintin, has emerged as the Man of the Match in a thrilling encounter against Beyond Limits FA.

Ovunda’s exceptional performance and incredible saves earned him a well-deserved and substantial reward from Optimus Bank.

The match was highly tensed, with Beyond Limits relentlessly bombarding Ovunda Darlintin with shots while dominating the game against the Oluyole Warriors.

The Academy boys took the lead just 16 minutes into the contest, courtesy of Onyebuchi Obasi’s excellent strike inside the area, which beat Ovunda in goal.

At halftime, the Sky Blue Star youngsters maintained their lead, with Onyebuchi Obasi’s goal being the only one scored against NPFL side, Shooting Stars.

In the second half, the center referee awarded a penalty to Beyond Limits, providing them with an opportunity to double their lead. However, their goal scorer, Onyebuchi Obasi, unfortunately missed from the spot.

With only ten minutes remaining until the final whistle, Kayode Oke managed to level the score for Shooting Stars with a powerful header.

Toward stoppage time, Shooting Stars faced adversity as their defender, 31-year-old Alex Aghahowa, received a red card, reducing the team to ten men.

Despite the Remo Stars youth team’s superb performance and chances to secure a 3-1 victory, the game ultimately ended in a 1-1 draw between Shooting Stars and Beyond Limits.

In another match between Sporting Lagos and Heartland FC of Owerri, which ended 3-2 in favor of the newly promoted NPFL side, Sporting Lagos star Shaibu Abdulrasaq was voted as the Man of the Match.

For their outstanding performances on Friday match day one, Ovunda Darlintin and Shaibu Abdulrasaq were rewarded with a sum of 100k and the prestigious Optimus Bank Man of the Match award.

With their remarkable skills on display, both players truly stole the spotlight during the exciting tournament.
