Rangers Eliminate El-Kanemi, Sets Up Lobi in Fed Cup Semis

Enugu Rangers defeated fellow Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side El-Kanemi Warriors 3-0 in Abuja on Wednesday to set up a last-4 clash with Lobi Stars.

The Flying Antelopes claimed lead courtesy of Osas Okoro’s well-taken free-kick on the nick of halftime.

Marshal Odah Onoriode tapped home a cross to double Rangers’ lead and completed his brace with a solo effort which sealed a convincing win for his side.

Lobi accounted for non-league side BJ Foundation 2-1 in Lokoja to advance into the semi-finals.

Mohammed Farouk Umar opened scoring for the Makurdi-based outfit; his second goal in this year’s Federation Cup.

Obinna Arinze doubled the lead at the break from Idakwo Eche’s pass.

Benin side BJ Foundation reduced their arrears in the second half, but there was not to be a fairytale comeback at the Confluence Stadium.

Thomas Zenke’s solitary strike was all Nasarawa United needed to eliminate FC IfeanyiUbah in coach Daniel Amokachi’s first game in charge of the latter.

Nasarawa thus set up Akwa United in the other semi-final. Akwa United dispatched Tornadoes Feeders 4-3 on penalties after the game ended 2-2 in regulation time.
