A minute silence was observed before the kicked off in honour of former Gombe United player and coach Ali Garba who answered the call of his creator yesterday.

In-form Yusuf Abdulazeez netted the opener just 9' minute from kick off from Kelechi Chimeze's long pass from the center circle only for him fired home from close range.

Young promising midfielder,Mohammed Aminu who has been in fine form added Gombe United's tally to two in the 41'- his first goal of the season.

Yusuf Abdulazeez put the game beyond the reach of the visitors as debuntant Abubakar Sa'ad launched an temerarious pass just after the centre circle as he smartly turned over;beat two of his markers before slotting home the third goal in the 42'- his sixth goal of the season.

The visitors made frantic efforts to get back into the game in the second stanza but the Savannah Scorpions were more ambitious as they continued to launched missiles from all angle but to no avail as the referee blew the final whistle after an additional 3'.
