Dare Dede Instrumental, Malomo Impresses As 3SC Snatch A Point Up North In NPFL Opener

It was a game between goalkeeper Dare Dede and Gombe United attackers as Shooting Stars of Ibadan marked their return to the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, on a good note, as they held their nerves to hold rampaging Gombe United to a goalless draw.

The 3SC shot stopper had to manage to finish, having sustained injury and was unable to resume with his teammates in the second half.

Dare made series of save to prevent Scorpions' forwards, Ahmed Jimoh, Ibrahim Yahaya and Samuel Oyedeji Abd Samaila Bello from getting a goal
before his injury. 

The superb goalkeeping, resolute defending on the part of the Oluyole Warriors and poor marksmanship by the host, combined to ensure the sharing of the spoils by both sides.

Malomo Taofeeq also tried to ease the pressure from the Scorpions, but his efforts could not create a goal for the visitors. 

The Oluyole Warriors will next face league holders , Akwa United of Uyo, in a matchday two fixture slated for Boxing day at the Lekan Salami Stadium.
