MFM were crowned the champions of the Ottasolo Pre-season Tournament after a nail-biting 4-3 penalty kick victory over Sunshine Stars Sunday evening at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium, Lagos.
Both teams initially met in the group stage of the same tournament and Sunshine Stars won 2-1 but the Olukoya Boys adopted an ultra-defensive approach in the grand finale which kept the Owena Whales who have scored in all the matches they played in Lagos before the final.
The game ended goalless before MFM triumphed 4-3 in the ensuing penalty kicks.
Just like it was in the semi-final, MFM Goalie, Osayi Kingdom was the hero again when he saved from Pius Ojo and Sunday Abe’s spot-kicks.
Uzoechi Ejike, Michael Olalusi and John Bello scored for Sunshine Stars during the penalty shootouts while Obasi Dennis, Samson Olasupo, Temim Adebayo, and Alabi Oladayo converted for MFM after Bolu Sholumade had lost the initial kick for the Olukoya Boys.
