Red cards galore as 3SC draw Sunshine
3SC striker Osagona
It was a big result for the Ibadan club, who have held their own in the second round of the championship under interim coaches Hakeem Busari and Tunde Odubola.
The highlight of this battle of the neighbours was the dismissal of three players.
Referee Ubonu showed Sunshine big defender Ado Ali a straight red card in the 44th minute for knocking down Gabriel Adikwu, who in turn received his own marching orders for retaliation on Ado Ali.
3SC enterprising midfielder Philip Asuquo was then red carded in the 53rd minute for deliberately elbowing a player of Sunshine Stars.
Speaking with MTNFootball.com, 3SC media officer Jubril Arowolo said it was a tough match in which both teams gave their best, but his team are happy with the draw on the road.
"It was a very tough game in which both sides were determined to win but at the end of the day, it finished in a draw,” said Arowolo.
“We are happy with the point we got even though we would have loved to get all three points. There was no dull moment at all and the referee did his best in the game."
Ten minutes were added to the normal duration to take in the many incidents during the game.
