Almar FC shock Gateway United to lift Ogun State FA Cup
Nationwide League One outfit Almaar Fc defeated defending Gateway United via penalties to win the 2019 Ogun State FA Cup.
After a goalless at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta, both teams proceeded into penalty shoot-out which saw the Ijebu-Ode outfit clinch their maiden Cup glory with a 3-2 win.
Almar goalkeeper Dauda Emmanuel was the hero of the day who saved efforts from Gateway United trio Ogunribide Seun, Fatai Bakare and Siaq Kabir while his team converted all their efforts.
Despite the result of the encounter, both Gateway United and Almar will represent Ogun state at the NFF/Aiteo Cup, later this year.
