Shooting Stars, Heartland dumped out of Aiteo Cup

Four-time champions Shooting Stars were one of the major casualties in the first round of the 2018 Aiteo Cup, losing 5-4 on penalties to third tier Supreme Court in Benin in the round of 64.

The game ended goalless in regulation time, and the Oluyole Warriors failed to win the lottery of the penalty, a missed opportunity to end their trophyless run.

Akwa United began their Aiteo Cup defence with a classy 7-0 victory against Hope of Glory in a fixture played in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

Saka was the match-winner for Stars; the veteran midfielder's 81st-minute effort earning the leaders a 1-0 victory against 10-men Kano Pillars.

Chris Madaki was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence and, within a minute, his dismissal had dire consequences as Saka headed home Ebube Duru's cross.

It was fourth time...
