Oshoala Nets Hat-Trick As Falcons Drub Abuja All Stars

Asisat Oshoala scored her first hat-trick for the Super Falcons on Saturday, as the Nigeria female senior team intensified preparations for the African Women’s Championship with a 5-2 drubbing of the Abuja All Stars.
The Namibia-bound Falcons took the lead as early as the fourth minute, when Oshoala latched on to a through pass from strike partner, Desire Oparanozie to chip over the head of the All Stars goalkeeper.
Rampaging Oshoala made it two in the 20th minute, when she scored from a goalmouth scramble and got her hat-trick in the 23rd minute when she beats an off side trap to make it 3-0.
The All Stars were  quick of the mark in the second half and deservedly reduced the tally with a goal in the 47th minute. The veterans piled up pressure but the Falcons defended well to ward them off.
Francesca Ordega and Ngozi Okobi increased the lead to 5-1 in the 73rd and 80th minutes respectively, before the All Stars scored from the spot to bring the final scores to 5-2.
