Abia Warriors, Youth Team Progress In FA Cup

Abia Warriors Football Club of Umuahia have qualified for the final of this year’s Abia State FA Cup competition following a 3-1 victory over Enyimba Feeders of Abia.

The encounter, which took place at the Umuahia Township Stadium, saw homeboy, Chisom Chikatara score two goals in the first half including a penalty while Ndifreke Effiong netted the consolidator after Louis Okoro had pulled one back for the Enyimba boys.

With the victory, Abia Warriors also qualified for the National Federation cup contest as the two finalists in the state FA Cup will represent each state at the National Federation Cup competition.

The Warriors will await their final opponents who will emerge after the semi-final encounter between the defending champions, Enyimba International of Aba and Abia Warriors Youth team.
The semi final match was postponed by the Abia State Football Association because of Enyimba’s continental engagements.

To make it to the last four, Abia Warriors Youth Team narrowly edged their city rivals, Diamond International Football Academy 7-6 on penalties after scores stood 1-1 at the end of regulation time.
