Defending Champions, FOSLA Academy Wednesday whitewashed Government Science Technical College, GSTC, Garki, Abuja 11-1 to reach the final of the FCT National Principal’s Cup.
In a one-sided first semi-final match played at the Area 10 Old Parade Ground field, the defending champions made a mince of their opponents as they ran riot and overpowered them in all departments of the game.
Zekeri Simeon who led the boys in the annihilation, scored a glut (5 goals) as the coach Mary Godspower-led boys secured a 7-0 half time result.
Simeon’s glut was consolidated by two braces from Tukura Joel and Muhammed Suleiman.
Gideon Goodlad and Nawas Abdullahi all scored a goal apiece to round up the game.
GSTC had their consolation in the second half but it was to late too little to galvanise any moral for fight back.
Speaking after the match, Coach Mary Godspower who expressed delight over the outcome, praised her boys for playing to instructions but warned them that the work is half done.
Coach Mary, former Super Falcons player added that the Academy has a target to retain the cup they have won many times.
“We prepared for the match and the children played to instructions. They did very well today being their first competitive match in a while.
“However, they should not be carried away. The job is half done and they know our target.
“We have won the competition three times consecutively and the history should not change,” she said.
