On Thursday, FC Izam needed a second-half turnaround before securing a draw against Galatians FA to indicate a drawback that had not been evident since the start of the season in which they have been irrepressible and showing that they were ready to give Mees Palace FA a good run in the campaign this term.

The battle of the undefeated teams held sway on Saturday and it was the reigning champions that stood tall at the end of the encounter. FC Izam managed to hold Mees Palace FA to a goalless draw in the first half but the Tony Ogharanduku’s lads struck in the 44th and 55th minutes through Kelvin Adeyemo and Christopher Yusuf and just like St. Monica’s FA their unbeaten start ended when they met Mees Palace FA.
