On Sunday at the Pantami Stadium, Kano Pillars’ Yusuf Abdullahi scored all the five goals as the Kano Pillars secured their first away win of the season by defeating Gombe United 5-2.

 

The seven-goal thriller recorded in Gombe was a spectacular event as Abdullahi became the first player after Emen Uduok to score five or more goals in a single game.

 

Kano Pillars also became the second team to score five goals in a single game this season.

 

Abdullahi was already up two goals by the 15th minute before Sadiq Shuaibu halved the deficit in the 17th minute for Gombe United.

 

However, Kano Pillars restored their two-goal lead as Abdullahi scored his hat trick in the 33rd minute. Before the halftime break, two quick-fire goals were scored by both teams; Ahmed Jimoh scored the game’s fourth goal for Gombe but Abdullahi extended Pillars’ lead in the 10th minute of added time at the end of the first half.

 

The striker then completed his quintuple two minutes after the hour mark to send Kano Pillars to the seventh position with 16 points. Gombe United are in the 16th position with 12 points.
