Young sensation, Henry Chiche Okpala netted his sixth goal of the season for Buffles FC, as his side held Real Sports FC to a 2-2 draw in the Parakou Derby on Thursday afternoon.
The rising star was on for the entire duration as of the week 12 encounter, as he made his eleventh appearance of the season a memorable one.
Buffles went ahead in the game, courtesy of an exquisite finish from the ex-Sunsel hitman, before Real Sports rallied from behind to equalize and take the lead. However Buffles found an equalizer to restore parity before the end of regular time.
Chiche has now scored in three consecutive games, as he takes his season’s goals involvement (goals and assists) to 12 in 11 games.
Across the divide, another Sunsel graduate, Henry Ejikeme was on fire as he completed the last 20 minutes for Beke FC against Dynamo, as his side played a 1-1 draw to pick up a precious point away from home.
The both players will be hoping to propel their sides to good results when matchday 13 gets started.
