Match Report – Day 3
Lagos Tavia Trojan and Kano Titans will today battle for the Oba of Lagos Cup in the Lagos Polo International Tournament which heads to its first set of finals this weekend.
Yesterday, Henry Edozie made a frantic last-gasp goal-line clearance to help Ibadan Eleyele record an enthralling 7-6 ½ win over Kano Dala to keep his team on course for a place in Sunday’s final in the Dansa Cup.

Dala started the match on an 11/2 handicap advantage but they soon find themselves trailing after the first chukka with two quick goals by Edozie and Elias Kordahy.

Man of the Match Edozie wriggled his way out of challenge by Kabiru Bello to widen their advantage at the start of the second chukka but Nura Shamaki tapped in a backhand and scored another one under high pressure from Mustapha Abu to take his side into the lead at 3-31/2. There was still time for Hassan Fayad to score as Kano restore their lead to 41/2 – 3.

Edozie and Usman Mohammed scored within minutes in the third chukka but at the end of the chukka scores stood at 61/2-5 advantage Dala with Edozie scoring the last goal of the chukka to set up a nail-biting final chukka.

Kordahy missed a 60 yard kick moments after Edozie had scored for Eleyele to make scores at 6-61/2. He was not done yet as he finished off a brilliant move after he was put through by Elias.

After losing their first match to Ibadan Mapo, Kano Dala know they have slim chance to progress and they put all their energy to find what would have proved to be a winning goal in the dying minute of the match but Edozie will not be denied his glory as he made a frantic clearance off the line just before the match was bought to and end. They will now wait for the outcome of Saturday’s clash between Lagos T-Raiders and Ironclad Hustlers to know their fate regarding Sunday’s final of the Dansa Cup.

    Why are we playing polo? looool. All this looks ridiculous to me. But then again just because we are crap at most sports ( think Olympics) doesnt mean we cant try other things.

    I wish Polo in Nigeria is opened up more and made more popular. It shouldnt necessarily be the exclusive reserve of a few to enjoy. Anyways the gate fee was N1,000…affordable!The sports obviously needs better PR in Nigeria!

    Guyz!
    Just because it is Nigeria does not mean that we cannot do good things! Polo is a great sport! While it may be a little high end, just like golf and Jet-Skiing or Boat racing, it is a lot of fun!
    The days captured in the photographs are actually weekdays and most people were probably at work!
    The game has always been open to the public and infact, 1,000 NGN was the fee for each person. I am not sure you can beat that!
    Let us top criticism please. If it is good, let us embrace and encourage these guyz!
    The fact that the Country is 3rd world does not mean we all should be!
    The tournament is still on and you can go there anytime to watch. However, be warned, those guyz do not entertain any misconduct so please ………….
