Wikki ambush champions



Nigeria Premier League (NPL) champions, Kano Pillars surprisingly lost 0-2 to Wikki Tourists in the semifinals at the ongoing pre-season championship in Kaduna on Tuesday.

Wikki edged the first half and took a deserved lead in the 25th minute through Shaki Adeyemi.

Kano Pillars' Rabiu Ali thought he had equalised for the Sai Masugida in the 30th minute, but his far post header was chalked off for offside by the centre referee.

Tourists' Captain, Mustapha Ibrahim then netted the second goal in the 83rd minute via a penalty when his teammate, Wasiu Razak was brought down by Pillars' defender, Nazifi Amani.

Wikki, were however, baptised with flurry of attacks but their goalkeeper, Daniel Achemogu was at his best as he denied Gambo Mohammed twice.

Musa Najare wasted Pillars' best opportunity in the 88th minute after being set up by Abdullahi Sheu, but the former Warri Wolves' man shot wide past the left-hand post.

In the second semifinals, Ibrahim Musa's goal at the death was enough for hosts, Kaduna United who beat Dynamic Sports Solution 1-0.

Kaduna United will now confront Wikki Tourists in the final at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna from 3pm on Wednesday.
