2018 NSF: Kaduna Win Women’s, Men’s Hockey Gold

Kaduna Women’s hockey team confirmed their dominance in Nigeria  with the addition of another gold medal to their collections in the 2018.

Following their victories at the U-15, and National Super League, the girls from Kaduna completed a golden hat-trick with the 2018 National festival medal.

Kaduna won all except their last game against Yobe to finish with 10 points and at the top of the table.

It was an easy tournament for Baba Ndana-led girls as they romped into the golden position hitch free. They didn’t concede a single goal while scoring a total of 5 goals in their four games, failing only to score in their 0-0 draw with Yobe in their last game.

Plateau who battered Ondo State 3-0 in their last game finished second having amassed a  total of 9 points from four games.

Yobe with five points, finished in the bronze position, while star-studded Delta finished 4th and missed out on the N1 million naira cash incentive offered them by their state government, while Ondo who lost all their games finished bottom of the log.

In the men’s category, Kaduna boys also won gold.  They beat Oyo in the final via penalty shootout after playing a goalless draw during the regulations time.

 The first round of shootout ended 2-2, Kaduna won by sudden death after Yinka Adejube missed his attempt for Oyo State and Kaduna Umar Shehu sealed victory for his side.

Delta trashed Plateau 2-0 in the third place match took the bronze medal.
