Jerome Akor heads for goal for Sogndal

Jerome Akor scored one of the goals as Sogndal U19s beat Baerum 2-1 to reach the quarterfinal of the youth cup for the first time since 1997.

The 18-year-old Akor from Jamba Academy Kaduna opened scoring for Sogndal after 17 minutes, when he drove inside from the right, sped past his marker, before he shot home.

Sogndal then doubled their lead before the interval, but their opponents reduced the tally in the second half.

Flying Eagles striker Akor, who has already made three appearances in the league for the main Sogndal team, was always a handful for the Baerum defence and could even have added to his opening goal.

The quarterfinal draw will be staged this weekend.
