After seeing action from the White Group in Week 8 of the NCC Tennis League Cup, attention is being shifted to the Blue Group this weekend where Team Offikwu leads the way.
Reigning NCC Tennis League Cup Champs, Team Offikwu will welcome Team Goshen to Kaduna for the biggest clash of the weekend.
Team Offikwu have been very ruthless so far in this year’s competition. They began the defence of their title by crushing Team Tech Vibe 6-1 in Jos.
The team then won their next match against Team Yetade 7-0 at the same venue of this weekend’s match.
In their most recent match a fortnight ago at the National Stadium in Abuja against Team Ndoma – Egba they didn’t find it very easy as they ran out 5-2 winners.
Team Goshen on the other hand have also been quite impressive with two victories from their first three matches.
They started their campaign on a good note, defeating Team Yetade and Team CBN Futures 5-2 in Ekiti and Kwara state respectively before losing narrowly to Team Tech Vibe 4-3 in front of their very own supporters.
If Team Offikwu go on to win this match, they would have done enough to book a place in the last four. It would also double as a big step towards retaining the title they won last year.
Team Goshen need to win this match more than Team Offikwu actually do to furthermore solidify their second position on the log. Especially as they have a similar record with Team Ndoma – Egba who will be travelling to Ekiti to face whooping boys of the group Team Yetade.
I tip Team Offikwu to win the contest 5-2.
The matches will be played at the Murtala Mohammed Square, Kaduna from Saturday September 30rd – Sunday October 1st.
