The Pipul TV Nationwide league one kick-started on a positive note for Goodland Rangers FC as they defeated Messiah FC by 3 goals to 2 in the league opener.

Playing on the road at the Onikan Water front, the Good land Rangers side, also known as the Orange Fruitful Boys rose above the water logged pitch to grab three points in the League opener.

The home team recorded an early goal in the 9th min as Hameed Azeez put the ball behind his own net and after that both sides were content with booting the balls high up in the aire due to the nature of the pitch.

Tayo Saliyu saved the day for Goodland Rangers in the 30th min when he went past two defenders to level scores.

Just before half time, a quick exchange of passes by Messiah FC strikers got them the second goal of the game.

And with time running out, a five minute brace from Kassim Shobanke saved the day for the Rangers, giving them a 3-2 win.

“I treasure this particular victory, it will motivate the boys because it's an away victory,” coach of Goodland Rangers, Ajuma Ameh- Ottache said after the game.
