Akwa United wins Federation cup

Akwa United have emerged champions of the 2015 Federation Cup having silenced Lobi Stars 2-1 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Sunday.
A fantastic first half free kick by Namso Edo and Afeez Awakan were  all the Uyo based outfit needed to subdue the Markurdi based outfit in a keenly contested final that produced three goals.

Few minutes into the halftime break, Edo curled in a brilliant free kick to give his side the lead in first half in the highly entertaining encounter.

Zachary Baraje’s men doubled their lead through Awakan to send fans of the Uyo based into wild jubilation.

In the closing stages of the game, Lobi Stars tried a comeback as substitute Barnabas Imengar Junior pulled a goal back from a brilliantly struck free kick.
