The inter-hall sports biannual event which got underway on the 25th of June continued with lots of talking points. In the football section, holders Sultan Bello Hall who played in the opening match against their neighbours, Kuti Hall, got off to a winning start as they defeated Kuti 2-0 in a much competitive encounter.
The next match of the competition saw students from Alexander Brown Hall beat Mellamby Hall by a lone goal and set the stage for the final group stage match against Independence Hall. Next match from the third group saw PG Halls Abdulsalam and Tafawa Balewa play a 1-all draw.
In the second round of matches, Nnamdi Azikiwe Hall played a goalless draw against Bello Hall and lost to Kuti Hall, Mellamby lost their second match of the tournament against Independence Hall and Abdulsalam Hall beat Lord Tedder Hall 3-1.
With three groups and three teams in each group, and the competition heading straight to the semi-finals, only one team can qualify from a group and the “best loser” from any of the groups. Sultan Bello Hall have made it out from group A as group with 4 points with second best Kuti Hall following closely with 3 points as they hope they get to qualify also.
The stage for the final group matches is set as Alexander Brown Hall face off with Independence Hall and Lord tedder hall lock horns with Tafawa Balewa Hall during the week.
The basketball tournament in the inter-hall competition concluded on Friday the 29th of June as a final showdown held between heavyweights Independence hall and Kuti Hall, It was clearly Kuti’s Hall as they comfortably beat the katangites in the last match of the competition.
The fight for third place went down as the medical students from Alexander Brown Hall battled Mellanby in a somewhat consolation match after they had both been knocked out at the semis. The medical students won that one easily as they settled for third place to cap off a fine display at the basketball tournament.
