Hensen Secondary School of Benin City, Edo State and Holy Ghost College, Owerri, Imo State, are set for tackles on Tuesday in the final of the19th edition of the NNPC/Shell Cup at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

In the first semi-final match played on Sunday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, the Hensen boys secured the first ticket with a 4-0 defeat of their counterparts from Government Day Secondary School, Lamisula, Borno State.

Ernest Ojeken opened the goal line in the 13th minute of play with the second goal coming barely five minutes after from Arase Iyober, who made a good conversion of a corner kick.

The first half of the match ended 3-0 with the third goal coming from Isaac Justice in the 23rd minute.

The Government College boys made frantic efforts and goal attempts to reduce the margin in the second half but missed every opportunity they had. The victory for the Hensen boys was sealed when Ernest recorded his second goal in the 78th minute of play to close the match at 4-0.

In the second semi-final match, Holy Ghost College, Owerri trounced the boys from Sambo Secondary School, Gusau, Zamfara State 3:1 to book the second slot for the final. Talent Okeke broke the goalless tie in the second half in the 58th minute but the equaliser came from Yakubu Digaro four minutes after.

Talent increased the tally almost immediately with his second goal while the third goal for the Owerri boys came from Ogbuehi Nzubechi to give final victory to the team.

The match was watched by coaching crew from the youth academy of the Dutch League Champions, Rotterdam Football Club, the Netherlands; the Director and Principal, Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba, Rev. Chris Ugorji, who represented the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu; Prof. Richard Follet from the University of Sussex, UK; and the leadership of The Shell Petroleum Development Company.
