The Anambra Warriors continued to mount pressure on their opponents resulting to series of corner kicks from the frantic clearance by the defenders of ABS.
Seka Pascal and Joseph Mamoo combined beautifully in front of goal but the goalkeeper of ABS, Nurudeen Mudashiru stood his ground and prevented the homers from getting an early opener.

The Anambra Warriors eventually restricted the visitors to their own half of the pitch but then could not increase the tally.
On resumption of play at half time, again FC Ifeanyi Ubah attackers terrorized the defence of ABS which paid off in the 67th minutes as Elu Wilson beat the offside trap of the ABS and made a through pass to Seka Pascal who found the back of the net for the homers second goal.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah goal highest poacher this season, Godwin Obaje, had the opportunity to increase the tally in the 76th minutes of play but his header narrowly missed target.
