That they did at the Sports Complex Ataoja School Of Science in Osogbo, as Remo Stars and Osun U15 played out a 1-1 draw to go second in Group B with 5pionts while Osun maintained the top spot with 7points after two wins and a draw.
With Oyo U15 already leaders of Group A with 6 points from two matches, Lagos and Ekiti had to slug it out in the final Group A game for who joins Oyo in the semis.
The soak tense game between both teams lived up to the hype as it ended 1-1, thus saw the Eko Boys qualifying on superior goal difference ahead of their counterparts Ekiti Bees as both teams were levelled on 4 points.
It’s a tough semi-final pairing as high-flying Oyo State who were handed a reality check after they lost their last group game by a lone goal to the Kwara U15 team, will square up against NPFL/LaLiga champions Remo Stars for a spot in the final while Osun U15 team will hope to contain the firepower of Lagos U15 team who scored five goals in the group stage.
