Ifeanyi Anaemena opened scoring for the home side just 33 minutes into the game as he nods home from a blunder by Kwara United goalkeeper – Abdullateef.
A minute later, Stephen Gopey doubled the lead for the Wike Boys. He dribbled brilliantly past his markers, flips the pass to an unmarked Aguda who latched into the net with his left foot.
Gopey makes it his third assist of the season for “The Pride of Rivers“.
Kwara United had their first shot on target through – Afeez Nosiru in 68th minute but Rivers United goalkeeper, Afelokai was equal to the task to deny the visitors scoring opportunity.
9 minutes later, Kwara United were reduced to 10 men as Afeez Nasiru was given the marching order for a crunching foul on Kazie Enyinnaya.
90th minutes Ejeh Isaiah handles the ball in his box off a shot by Ishaq Kayode. Referee gives him a red card and the second for Kwara United.
Chika Godwin steps forward and converts from the spot to complete the rout for Rivers United.
