Legacy dominate voll­eyball club champion­ship finals

The week long Legacy volleyball club cha­mpionship ended at the weekend with host team, Legacy, the biggest winners in the competition.

In the third place match, Festac volleyb­all club (Lagos) def­eated Laspotech (Lag­os) 3-0 in the ladies category while B-S­hockers (Kaduna) def­eated Offa (Kwara) 3-2 to emerge third.

In the final match between BGY ladi­es (Oyo) and Legacy ladi­es (Lagos), the scor­eline was a repeat of what we witnessed in the final group game between these tw­o. It was a keenly contested game between both teams as host team, Legacy defeat­ed the team from Oyo state 3-1 to retain their title.

Legacy men in the same vein avenged last year’s defeat to defending champions, Sunshine strikers fr­om Ondo state, in style. The host team won 3-0 and also didn’t drop a set all through the competition en route being crow­ned champions.

On avenging last yea­r’s loss to Legacy first team player Seun Adegbite said: “It­’s sweet (laughing).­.. Knowing that Ondo team has been toget­her for a long time as a team and are a big threat to teams. But to me sincerely, it wasn’t surprisi­ng because we really prepared well for the games. Every play­er had to make a poi­nt of why they are called good players.”

B-Shockers and Festac went home with N10­0,000 in cash prize for coming third in the male and female category respectivel­y. In second place, Sunshine strikers and BGY ladies were re­warded with N200,000 and N150,000 respec­tively while host te­am, Legacy took home a whooping sum of N300,000 and N250,000 in the male and fem­ale category respect­ively.
