Group A

Kwara 2-0 Yobe

Muslim Community Secondary School started their journey in the Copa Coca-Cola National Finals on a bright note after they secured a 2-0 victory over Government Junior Secondary School, Yobe.

Goals from Temitope Omodara and Lateef Muritala in each half of the encounter ensured the Ilorin boys go top of the Group A log.

 

Abuja 1-1 Osun

Progressive Comprehensive High School, Osun rallied back to secure a 1-1 draw in a fiercely contested Group A opener against Fosla Academy, Abuja at CMS Grammar School, Bariga, Lagos.

Owerri City College, Imo and Community Secondary School, Amadi-Ama, Rivers shared the spoils in their Group B opening fixtures after they played out a 1-1 draw.
