Action continues on Wednesday in the 2017 GTBank Lagos Principals Cup which is the eighth edition. The competition has now reached the semi-final stage.
The GTBank Lagos Principals Cup remains the most glamorous secondary schools’ tournament in the country and had its beginning in 1948.
Sports Village Square recalls that owing to some years of dormancy, this year’s edition is the 60th overall and eighth in succession since GTBank rescued the competition which had been a breeding ground of football stars.
The semi-final matches are holding at the cradle of national football, the time-honoured water front arena of Onikan Stadium.
After the excitement and surprises in the quarter finals stage, all eyes will be set on which of the semi-final teams in the boys and girls categories of the competition will make it to the historic finals at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday.
In the girls’ category, Sanya Senior Grammar School, Surulere will face Government Senior College, Agege. The match is slated for 10:00am. Almost immediately, Ikorodu Senior High School will slug it out with Isale Eko Grammar School.
