Goals rain as local council stage draws to a close
Youthful strikers competing at the ongoing Principals’ Cup competition for Secondary Schools in Delta State are making headlines with their beautiful displays at the competition sponsored by Zenith Bank Plc. It is still at the stage where schools are battling to pick the sole ticket to represent each of the 25 local councils at the zonal level.
According to the latest results, the strikers are living up to their billing as goals have rained without ceasing in the matches. One of the matches in Aniocha South Council between Comprehensive Secondary School, Ogwa and St. Anthony’s Secondary School saw George Favour going haywire with four goals in the 4-1 victory recorded by the Ogwa team.
While fans of the game were still expressing delight about the feat achieved by Favour, Lucky Obiego also achieved similar feat in the final match of the Oshimili North LG decided only yesterday.
Lucky scored three goals within 15 minutes for Thomas Ibusa Secondary School in their 5-0 thrashing of Ugbolu Secondary School. He registered the second, third and fourth goals for his team in the 25th, 26th and 40th minutes respectively.
His feat was enough to earn his school a place in the zonal stage of the competition, which is scheduled for January. It will be recalled that the highest scorers in the past two editions of the tournament were rewarded handsomely during the closing ceremony of the event.
