Awolowo Hall settled for a 4-2 loss in a game that was dominated by the Fajuyians. Alji, who was the talisman for the Fajuyian team troubled the defense line of the Awoites and found the back of the net 3 times leaving the visitors with an herculean task of overturning the defeat in the return leg.

Our Leaders -A Poem By Jodekss Gloatkenf

Image
So goes the moon exchanging guard with the sun The sun repeating the repeated roll firing down the moon with his giant gun Life is full of changes; constant is changes Which is why, why the sun shrieks, teeters about, finding his way to shine his sun on souls So same remains the earth So same remains this campus filled with big beards Doing learners with their good gray hairs To win wits in their ends What do you expect? As it happens above It happens to this dirt's stove.
The campus is heated up
Hands that need votes are vying for fame now
Lobbying with pleases is what we hear now
You see them on their knees, drably dope
Pleading friends and fiends they the hope
Of cause both bad and good minds need to win the cup
Perhaps to fail us again
Or lift this varsity's face that is down up from this filthy water-rain.

Leaders should lie like a lizard limping up and down nodding
Aye just for just just
Against chameleon; the excrete it gives clings till life leaves.


-Jodekss…
