Sterling Bank lost in the last group game to First Bank in the football event but the two will meet again, this time in the finals of the Table Tennis event men’s category. In the women category, the finals will be an all-Fidelity Bank affair.
 
In the first semifinals of the men’s event, Frederick Rekuoya of Sterling Bank won in three straight sets over Femi Omojola of Ecobank, 11-7, 11-9, 16-14 to reach the final while Solomon Idowu of First Bank ended the second semi finals 3-2 against Femi Ayeni also of First Bank 11-9, 11-9, 8-11, 7-11, and 11-8.
 
After his comfortable win, Rekuoya of Sterling described the encounter as a great one adding that defeating his opponent was due to hard work and concentration which was the brain behind his success. 

“My game against Omojola was tough but it was also okay because it depends on how you work hard. I worked hard which made me to cruise to the final. I was ready for the match; I was relaxed because I already knew everybody who is taking part in Table Tennis.
