Okocha adds colour to Delta Gov’s Cup

It was an unbelievable scene when Comprehensive Secondary School Ogwuashi-Uku defeated Edjekota Secondary School Ugheli yesterday at the Agbor Stadium in the semi final of the Delta State Governors Cup competition.

The crowd was mammoth, the standard of play was high and the conduct of the two teams was exceptional as spectators were kept on the edges of their seats throughout  the keenly contested encounter. Ex internationals including Austin Jay Jay Okocha and Davidson Owunmi who were in attendance attested to the quality of play exhibited by the two teams.

The match ended in a draw in regulation time. The ensuing penalty shootout saw the boys from Ogwuashi-Uku running away with a 3-0 victory to qualify for the final.

Fans left the venue satisfied and wondered how secondary school children could churn out such a performance. Former Super Eagles captain, Okocha said the standard of the match was higher than the Delta State FA Cup final which featured Warri Wolves and Ateke FC.

In the other semi final Elegbo Grammar School Effurun defeated Dom Domingo Grammar School Warri 4-2 also on penalties to qualify for the final which comes up on the 28th of May in Warri.

A N1million prize money, a bus and a foreign training tour await the winners of the competition..
