Lagos Junior League Season Ends

The final week of the Lagos Junior League 2013/2014 Season will formally end this weekend, with the winners expected to emerge on last day of the youth development football competition. Although, Surulere FC suffered a first half scare in their outstanding match against Oshodi Isolo but they rallied back to win the game 2-1 at the Legacy pitch on Wednesday evening. Oshodi who virtually extinguished Apapa Golden Stars’ title hopes last week looked set to repeat the feat against Surulere FC scoring a goal early in the first half.
The Surulere side looked stretched and struggled to contain Oshodi in a torrid first half game. After the restart, the Sport City boys looked more composed and quickly returned the
favour exposing Oshodi’s weaknesses and scoring two goals in quick succession to finally take a pole position in the final round of matches.
However, Surulere FC have to contend with Onigbongbo Ultimate Strikers at the Epe Stadium on Sunday evening. The last match is a must win for the Surulere team if they intend on win the Premier League title this season.
Y.M.D. Babes of Ojo will take on Apapa Iganmu in what is most likely be a mismatch at Alade Stadium on Saturday evening. A win for Ojo is likely but their focus will be on the result of the match at Epe between Onigbongbo Ultimate Strikers and Surulere FC.
In the other Premier League encounters, Eti Osa East will take on Lagos Island, Oshodi will face Lagos Island East while Ajeromi Ifelodun will host Itire Ikate.
Mosan Okunola will travel to face Odi Olowo while Agege and Mushin will tango at the Legacy Pitch in Surulere on Sunday evening.
In League 1, Orile Agege need just a draw to win the division, but they must scale the hurdle of Ikorodu Central FC on Saturday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Egbe Idinmu drubbed Ojodu 5-0 in the last match of the season and will drop to the third position if Ibeju Lekki win their last match against Ifelodun FC.
Lekki FC’s fate as fourth has been sealed despite the outcome of their match against Epe Alaro. Bariga FC narrowly edged Ojodu Fc to fifth place on goal difference. Shomolu FC, Yaba FC, Ikosi Isheri and Agbado Oke Odo are set to complete the top ten.
