26 schools qualify for Zenith/Delta Principals Cup zonal stage
A Total of 26 schools have emerged champions at the Local Government stage of the Delta State Principals Cup football competition sponsored by Zenith Bank.
Although Delta State has 25 LGs, the competition was extended to 26 centres as Ughelli North was divided into two because of its size and population. And so Ughelli North 1 has Marvel International Secondary School as winners, while Ughelli North 2 has Ibru College as its champion.
Sapele with over 30 participating schools presented Obule Integrated School as champions, just as Ogume Government Secondary School emerged champion among 42 schools that competed in Ndokwa West Local Government.
Isoko North and Isoko South presented St. Paul’s Secondary School and St Michael’s College as winners respectively. Three other schools, Iwere College, Koko, Essi College 2, Warri and Kokodiagbene Secondary School emerged from Warri North, Warri South and Warri South West respectively.
The head of the organizing team for the annual football fiesta, Tony Pemu yesterday revealed that the draw for the zonal stage would be out soon.
“It has been a tough so far and we went round to monitor and ensure compliance to all the rules, especially to avoid cheating. We suspended some schools caught cheating so that we can have a true winner.
“In the zonal stage, we will continue the exercise because it is only fair that those who worked so hard in accordance with all procedures are the ones we expect to compete in the finals.”
