The Big, strong, reliable and smart bank has just concluded her female football league season. It was the female team from the Kwara cluster that emerged the 2018 Union Bank Female football season for the first time. They defeated defending champions Imo cluster by 2 goals to none. The Kwara cluster had come for a revenge mission against their Imo opponents who had deprived them of the title in the last edition. The high tension and heavily contested match was held at the Union Bank pitch in Surulere, Lagos.
The Kwara team had come with two star players Muibat and Teniola who had played against the Imo team took the crown from them despite their fantastic and coordinated play. In the last edition, the Imo cluster players had muscled out the slim fit Kwara cluster players with the big body structure.
The first half had ended goalless with the Kwara cluster the better team. From the start of the second half, the Kwara cluster entered the game with a new game plan which paid off to give the side a two goal lead ahead of the Imo cluster. The technique was simple- avoid being bullied on the field. The Kwara cluster goal stopper came alive and blocked all shots fired by the stoutly built Imo cluster players.
At the end of the match it was Kwara who had lifted the trophy to be the 2018 edition champions.
In the third place match, it was Kano cluster that had locked horns against the Headquarters (HQ) team, Lagos. At the end of a one all draw, the game ended in favour of the Kano team after the penalty shoot- outs when their keeper saved a penalty. This was the best outing for the Lagos HQ team as they are always eliminated in the first round.
