TCC Recap: Dino SC smash history books, Sporting Lagos dazzle again in exciting game week

It was a matchday of 4-goal thrillers in The Creative Championship, TCC, with Dino SC and Sporting Lagos the biggest victors.

Dino SC has etched its name into the annals of TCC history with a remarkable performance in the last game week, with Sporting Lagos also showing their impressive form in what was an enthralling week of action in the Creative League. 

A total of 18 goals were scored across six matches for an average of three goals per game as the TCC maintained its reputation as the most entertaining league in the country with no fewer than three four-goal thrillers. 

Dino SC: History Makers

Dino saw off competition from Imperial FC to become the first team in TCC history to win their first four matches in the League. 

The talented side was inspired by the brilliant Hyacinth Ogbonna, who scored one of the goals and assisted the other in a man-of-the-match performance.

Both goals came in a blistering second display from Dino, who could have won by a larger margin but were wasteful on the day. 

However, Ogbonna, who missed a good chance earlier on in the match, made amends when he set up Chidubem Diji to fire in the opener just three minutes into the second half before he stepped up to the plate to calmly convert from the spot after Amos Adzuu was fouled in the Imperial box to wrap things up.

The victory saw Dino move to the top of the table on 12 points, two more than second-placed Broad City, who missed out on the chance to also make history after they were forced to share the spoils with Atlantic Business. 

Sporting Lagos win again

Meanwhile, Sporting Lagos Academy was the other team that sealed all three points on offer in the last game week.

The Young Tech Boys continue from where they left off in week three with a solid performance following a 2-0 win over Gbagada FC. 

After a thrilling 3-2 win against defending champions Beyond Limits, Sporting made it back-to-back victories thanks to two second half goals. 

Ugochukwu Emmanuel and Yusuf Abdullahi were the heroes on the day for the coach Shola Adegun-led Tech Boys.

Four-goal thrillers

In the other three matches, it was a remarkable end-to-end stuff after all the games ended in four-goal thrillers.

Champions Beyond Limits continue their shaky start after coming from behind to salvage a point against the free-scoring Real Sapphire side.

Iganmu Tiger and Valiant also shared the spoils 2-2 as did Escola United and the Cedars, Dannaz.
