Red card galore, as Smart City gain maximum point against 1472

The local derby of Match Day 2 of the second stanza of NNL between two Lagos State sides, Smart City FC and ‘Team 1472’ was full of drama and suspense as the 1472 side got three red cards in the tension soaked encounter.
The game which was watched by the NNL Chairman Mr. George Aluo saw the Smart City boys drawing the first blood after five minutes of play but their lead did not last long as their opponents rallied round immediately to cancel the goal after ten minutes.
After the goals, both teams made no serious effort to increase the tally thereby ending the first half 1-1 with the Smart City boys accusing their opponents of time wasting.
However, the second half saw some purposeful display from Smart City and their effort was rewarded with a second goal through a goal mouth scramble.
This goal made 1472 players to resort to some rough play which resulted in the centre referee giving two of their players red card. This was followed by another red card to one of their assistant coaches for insulting the referee.
After this, both teams played with caution to end the game 2-1 in favour of Smart City FC.
