Samson Iroka scored a hat trick as A & B Football Academy romped to a 4:0 win against FC Ghanaman and Friends in Group B of the Brown Ideye Challenge.
Both sides went into the fixture knowing a win guaranteed them passage to the knock out stages and as such it was an ill-tempered.
Ghanaman and Friends had a player sent of mid-way into the second half and the referee also had to send to the stands from the bench, the team Coach for the day, Victor Kwame Sampong (also known as Ghana man) and a substitute player, for altercations with the assistant referee.
The victory for A&B Academy meant they finished the group stages with 7pts and as such they qualified for the quarter finals from Group B in second place to Garden City Academy of Sports who topped the group with 10pts.
Garden City Academy of Sports were 2:1 winners over Ajagun Soccer Academy in their final game of the group.
