36 Lion winger Ifesinachi had his first in the 65th minute, however, when he got a pass from Adam before cutting inside and squeezing a shot through the gloves of the goalkeeper.
Ifesinachi was on song again. He latched on to a cross field pass and struck to the bottom corner in the 71st minutes, after connecting from Abdulrahamn Adam assist.
Super sub Gbadamosi Umar, increased the goal margin to make it 5-0 with 10 minutes left before regulation time.
