Prime stunner for Enyimba

Prime FC beats Enyimba in the Federation Cup quarter-finals

Posted: 24 July 2012 Time: 10:00 am

In an upset-littered Federation Cup, Prime FC provided the biggest upset of all, kicking Enyimba out 2-0 in the quarter-finals.

Taiwo Maiyegun and Chris Akpogua scored in both halves for the lower division side as they claimed a famous win to make their first ever Cup semi-final.

Enyimba, stunned by the score, left it late to haul themselves back into the game, but Prime held firm to spark celebrations at the end.

Compared to Enyimba, Kano Pillars had a more straightforward, if equally challenging test to overcome Plateau United in Lagos.

Pillars triumphed 3-2 in the end, but will consider themselves fortunate. The northern aristocrats had to rally from going behind early to book their last four spot.

In other games, Lobi Stars topped Sharks 3-1, as the Port Harcourt club's long wait for a trophy continues.

Heartland also made it past Crown, claiming a 2-0 victory to make the semi-final.
