Surulere Grab Lagos Junior League Title

The 2013/2014 Season of the Lagos Junior League, LJL, came to a climax with Surulere Sport City FC sealing the Premier League title with a hard fought 2-0 victory over Onigbongbo Ultimate Strikers at the Epe Stadium on Sunday evening.
Despite Y.M.D. Babes of Ojo winning their final match 3-0 against whipping boys Apapa Iganmu, their chances of securing the title relied solely on Onigbongbo FC, causing an upset in their match against the boys from Surulere.
