The Promise Keepers were the first to find their rhythm, but the Flying Antelopes’ defense was impervious to the pressure.

In the 24th minute, Philip Clement had a great opportunity for Rangers, but he was denied by a spectacular save by the Akwa United keeper.

After Akwa United’s coach, Fatai Osho, subbed in a new lineup in the second half, Oguntayo took advantage of a porous Rangers defense to score a long-range goal, sending the sparse crowd into delirium.
