Team Ndoma-Egba grabs semi-final spot 

*Outcome of Jos pairing put in jeopardy

Team Ndoma-Egba won the four matches they needed to win their home tie against Team Goshen of Ilorin to secure the second semi-final spot in the White Group of the NCC Tennis League.

With four points in the bag Team Ndoma-Egba now place second behind defending champions Team Offikwu no matter the result in Jos where Team Tech Vibe was hoping to land the spot in the event of a Team Goshen win.

Former national champion Thomas Otu got the host team on their way with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Wale Babalola in the first match and Paul Emmanuel defeated Joseph Iyorovbe 7-5, 6-3 to increase the tally.

Anu Aiyegbusi survived a long drawn second set in the ladies’ singles match against Patience Onebamhoin to win 6-0, 7-5.

Not leaving any thing to chance, Team Ndoma-Egba fielded two former national champions, Otu and Sunday Maku, in the men’s doubles against Iyorovbe and Chima Iwuagu and won 6-3, 6-4.

The win established an unassailable lead with three matches – two men’s reverse singles and the mixed doubles – slated for Sunday.
