Olympicafrica and Agape School have booked their place in this year’s NOC Samsung Football competition taking place in the Olympicafrica center at Goderich.
In the first semi-final Olympicafrica team and UMC Goderich played to a one all draw (1-1). At full time, during the penalty shootout Olympicafrica won by four goals to one (4-1) to secure a place in the final.
In the other semi final between Agape and Grace International, it was a win for Agape by two goals to nil (2-0) who dominated most part of the match to ensure that they play in the final.
Before the final on 27th June between Olympicafrica and Agape, the third place match will be played on Thursday 19th June 2014 at the same venue between the two losers UMC Goderich and Grace International.
Most of the PHE teachers who spoke to AWOKO said that since the start of this competition, they have been able to identify potential players in their various schools for which they are very grateful to the National Olympic Committee executive. They said that is why this time around, the center is able to have a team to represent them, which is very good, as this team will serve as a National team for the Olympicafrica center where those players who excel will be called to join the team.
