Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministries Football Club (MFM fc) this evening inside the Soccer Temple defeated the surprising finalist, Smart City FC to win the WGB Lagos FA trophy for the 3rd year running.
The Olukoya Boys scored their first goal in the 38th minute of play when Joshua Abah rounded Smart City FC goalkeeper, Timi Adeyoruju up to put the defending champions ahead.
Smart City had clear cut chances to level the scoreline before the end of the first half, but squandered their chances allowing MFM FC to take their slim lead into the break.
The defending champion scored their second goal of the game through Joshua Abah who eventually emerged the MVP of the final game at the 48th minute of play.
Olukoya Boys were in cruise control and soon got the third goal in the 68th minute, from a counter-attack which saw Alade Balogun scoring a stunner which hit the underside of the crossbar before entering into the net.
It was indeed a disappointing performance from Smart City FC which though was participating in the FA Cup for the first time, had defeated teams like last year finalist Spartan FC in the quater final and First Bank FC in the semi final.
Speaking to newsmen after the game, MFM FC assistant coach, Alli Suleman Obinna said the win is dedicated to the club’s media officer, Olawale Quadry who got married Saturday afternoon in Lagos.
“It’s a very good feeling, winning this title once again. I dedicate this title to our media officer, Olawale Quadry, who got married today,” he said.
With this victory MFM FC won a giant trophy, 1 million naira and will represent Lagos State in 2017/2018 edition of Aiteo Cup.
