5th NYG: Lagos beat Delta in male football final
Team Lagos on Friday defeated their Delta counterparts 1-0 to win the gold medal in the male football event at the ongoing National Youth Games (NYG) in Ilorin.
Hassan Haruna’s 33rd minute strike was all Lagos needed to win the competition’s final match as the state dominated the football event at the Games.
The Lagos side dominated most of the proceedings, thanks to the huge support they received from their fans who cheered them with drumming and singing from the beginning to the end.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Edo defeated Kano State 1-0 to clinch the bronze medal in the third-place match played earlier.
Lagos had defeated Edo 2-1 in the semi-final played earlier on Friday while Delta beat Kano State 1-0 in the other semi-final match.
