Edel FC Holds Abia Comets To Draw in Umuahia





Ebuka Lazarus continued his impressive home scoring form with a brilliant solo finish as Edel FC held Abia Comets to a 1-1 in a Matchday 19 NNL encounter at the Umuahia Township Stadium.

It was the fourth league goal of the season for the Imo State-born forward this season, in the Nigeria National League.

However, the the visitors levelled it 1-1 in the 84th as both teams shared the spoils at the end of the game.

The draw still leaves leaves Comets in the fifth position on 28 points from 19 games.

The team will resume its training session on Tuesday, ahead of the second back-to-back home game against Madiba FC, next Saturday, in a Matchday 20 encounter.
