Prison Key boys defeated Borno Spiders yesterday to record their first win in 17 games yesterday at the on-going Prudent Energy Handball League at the Mobolaji Johnson Sports Complex, Yaba, Lagos.   

The losing streak started from the first phase in Abuja, with the Prison boys’ best result being a draw. Yesterday’s win was a big relief Prison Key, but it was a close game, which could have gone either way.       

De Defenders (Civil Defence) returned to winning ways yesterday by beating COAS Shooters (Nigeria Army) 37-31 in another exciting encounter.  


The Civil Defence team had lost narrowly to Niger United (28-30) on Wednesday but took their chances against the Nigerian Army to bounce back into contention.

Though the COAS Shooters pushed hard towards the end of the game, the D. Defenders protected their goal to record another famous win over their rivals. Owena Queens of Akure had a better game yesterday against Kada Queens but still lost 30-37 to the Kaduna State team.     

The Ondo State team occupies the rear on the league table after winning just one game in 15 matches.

Unless they improve, which is unlikely, the Queens are on their way out of the Premier League.    

Defending Champions, Plateau Peacocks also recorded another victory, beating Abia Valiants 27-16 to maintain their third spot on the table.

The defending champions were the dominant side in the game and they made it count by seeing off the Valiants in easy fashion.

The Valiants remain second from the rear and also risk relegation at the end of the season.
