The Shootings stars of Ibadan continued with their touch and go streak when they took on Giwa FC, a team being coached by former Shootings Stars coach, Segun Ogunbote. The Oluyole warriors have been alternating between winning and losing with all their wins coming at the Lekan Salami Stadium and this time around it was no different edging out visiting Giwa FC by two goals to one. The 3SC took an early lead when Izu Joseph headed home a corner kick by Seun Akinyemi in the second minute of the game.

The second half of the game had no talking point of note until Aminu Mbai was sent off the pitch after picking up a second yellow card. The Oluyole warriors took advantage of the man-deficit and Kabiru Umar doubled the score line on the 87th minute. However, Giwa FC grabbed a consolation cortesy of Isiaka Olawale but it was little too late.
