St. Jude Girls Secondary School, Amarata, Bayelsa State will square up against Trans Ekulu Girls Secondary School Enugu State in the semi-finals of the ongoing Nestle Milo Secondary School Basketball Championship Equatorial Conference at the Indoor Sports Hall of the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium.

The Bayelsa girls earned their ticket to the last four after overcoming Emeka Aghasili High School Nuse, Anambra State, in a ruthless 45-02 points victory.

Tena Ikidi and Grace John were the outstanding players. Their explosive moves disorganised the girls from Anambra.

Trans Ekulu Girls Secondary School Enugu State had to wait till the last quarter to claim a 12-09 victory against hard fighting Federal Airport Authority Secondary School, Calabar, Cross River State.

Holy Rosary International College, Owerri, Imo State, got more than what they bargained for, as they were beaten 18-11 points by their more illustrious opponents, Marist Comprehensive Secondary School, Uturu, Abia State.

The last quarter-final match saw Fortune High School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, outclass Annunciation Secondary School, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, 19-14 points.

Speaking after match, Mr Samuel Abagi, Vice President of the National School Sports Federation, affirmed that Nestle Nigeria PLC has carved a niche for itself in the development of sports in Nigeria particularly, the development of basketball. The Milo brand through the sponsorship of this championship has become a household name in our schools, thus this is evident in the continual increase in the number of participating schools annually, he said.

In the girls semi-final pairings, Bayelsa will meet Enugu while Abia confront Akwa Ibom.
