NUGA Champions UNILORIN Warriors beat UAM Tillers 1-0 in Makurdi

UNILORIN Warriors, the winners of the NUGA 22 Football event, beat UAM Tillers at the University of A agriculture, Makrudi by a lone goal in their round of 16 first leg clash at the ongoing HiFL 2022 season. 

UAM Tillers, who won the first edition of the HiFL in 2018, are now on the brink of exiting the tournament at this stage with the advantage now on the side of Coach Isa Gambari’s UNILORIN Warriors

The Warriors scored early in the first half through Mustapha Obungbero and held on to their lead despite several attempts by the UAM Tillers, 2019 HiFL champions, to draw level.  The away side was resolute in defence and seemed content with a narrow lead heading into the second leg.  

However, the fans of the UAM Tillers would be disappointed with the results but not the performance of the football stars. Coach Finbar Yamelu’s side created several chances but was thwarted by Hanafi Moshood who was in goal for the away side. 

The goalkeeper made several breathtaking saves to put the Tillers at bay and earned himself the STANBIC IBTC Man of the Match award. 

UAM Tillers now have a mountain to climb as they have to defeat the NUGA Champions on their own turf in Ilorin when both sides clash for the second leg of the round-of-16 tie on the 17th of August 2022.
