It was another time of goals rain in the Match Day 3 of the ongoing Epe Conference of the 1XBET Cup Community Football Championship at the Odion Ighalo Sports Arena, Epe, Lagos. 
In a must-do encounter for fans favourites, Odion Ighalo FC, the Ambrose Duru handled boys left nobody in doubt, about their intentions, as they put their hapless opponents to the swords, in a 10-2 win. It began with a quick fire hat trick from the immensely talented striker Yusuf Fawaz in the 3rd, 10th and 17th minutes of the game. 
Panthers FC refused to lie down and die, as they responded with two quick goals by Junior Gabriel and Segun Happiness in the 25th and 30th minutes of the game respectively.
In the second stanza, however,  Michael Nwachukwu scored four goals in between goals from Victor Whizojie and Dennis Kingsley, and with Yusuf Fawaz, also netting another one to make it four goals for himself, and his sixth in the championship. 
Meanwhile, in the second game of the group, De Porters hit Peckins FC 4-0 to also garner seven points, but could not dislodge Ighalo FC, for the conference’s final ticket.
Group B leaders, De Elites FC drew 1-1 with hard-fighting Emperor FC to top the group with seven points, ahead of Emperor FC on five points to qualify for the conference’s final. 
With this result, Odion Ighalo FC and De’Elites FC would on Thursday, at the Odion Ighalo Sports Arena battle for the sole ticket in the Epe Conference, and for a place in the Lagos State final 8 of the 1XBET Cup Championship.
