Hensen Demonstration School in Benin City on Tuesday won the 2017 NNPC/Shell Cup, an annual football championship among secondary schools in Nigeria.

The Benin City outfit defeated Holy Ghost College from Owerri 2-0 in the grand finale at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.

Arase Iyobor’s brace from the penalty spot in each half of the encounter was enough to secure the coveted title for his side.

Government College Maiduguri beat Sambo Secondary School Gusua 5-3 on penalties to win the losers’ clash after the match ended 2-2.

Chinedu Ubah, the elated head coach of Hensen Demonstration School, said he knew his side would emerge champions after they upset the toughest side of the championship, Asegun High School from Oyo, in the final of the zonal preliminary in Ijebu Ode.

“Before God and man my heart is filled with joy. Out of the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) we came top as number one, it’s awesome and I personally feel elated and happy over our victory in the final of 2017 NNPC/Shell Cup championship”.

Iyobor and teammate Ahunwan Mavis emerged the two Most Valuable Players (MVPs) of the championship to embark on a trip to the Netherlands for a coaching opportunity with the youth academy of the current Dutch football league champions, Feyennoord Rotterdam FC.

Meanwhile, Chinaemerem Iheanacho of Holy Ghost College in Owerri was voted the best midfielder while the Benin side's goalkeeper, Chibuzor Emefuwa, was named the best goalkeeper of the championship. (Supersport)
