, Chris Okunuwa Media Head Sunshine Stars Football Club Akure said that the Club has advanced to the round 32 of the AITEO Cup on Sunday, beating Osun United 5-4 on penalties after a barren regulation time play at the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne, Ogun State.

The Owena Whales could not break the resistance of the Omoluabi Giants despite asking all the questions in the opening half of the Southwest derby, with Temitope Vincent in the thick of things.

After failing to punish United’s sloppiness in the opening seconds, Vincent moved through on goal in the 7th minute following a good solo run, but his tame effort was blocked in front of goal.

Then 11 minutes later it was Leonard Ugochukwu’s time to try with an effort that was charged down at close range, while his follow up on the rebound drifted just wide.

David Ariyo showed good reflexes and alertness to prevent an own goal, tipping over from a miscued header after the half hour.
