The Ibusa Annual Soccer Championship finals played at the Umejei Primary School sports ground has come and gone, but what remains unforgettable is the memory the competition left in the minds of football enthusiasts who were thrilled with wonderful displays. Team Umuekea united set a new record by winning the Ibusa Inter Village soccer championship for the 8th time.The competition, which started December 2019 ended on a very colorful note at the finals played between Umuekea and Umuodafe as the Ibusa community stood for the last match of the tournament. It was beautifully spectacular as football fans, Anioma over yelled at every misses and applauded every good attempt too.
This records set by the Umuekea team may be difficult to shatter considering the very high degree of competitiveness and healthy rivalry growing among the the ten Quarters of the Ibusa community, football wise. The Umuekea team proved that the combination of mature-experienced and young and dynamic players are all it simply takes to demonstrate superiority in the field of soccer as potential opponents displayed fears engaging the team of Umuekea. The usefulness of the bench, something many of the opponent teams lacked must be overemphasized as one factor that enabled the Umuekea easily overran their counterparts. The expertise of the coaching crew reliably yielded results.
Team Umuekea, being the champions of Igbuzo Soccer League Tournament, had to celebrate and dedicate their victory to Hon. Innocent Esewezie, Executive Assistant on Youth Development, who having given them the right drive to successfully plunge in a goal at the second half of the game, where indeed happy to have one of their own, supporting them to the end…
God bless Hon. Innocent Esewezie for the moral boost and being part of the gold medal and cash reward of *#500,000* being presented to Team Umuekea by *NorthWest group of companies* on a well deserved Victory.
Congratulations Boys and more wins to come.
