Awolowo Hall, Angola Hall Lose As OAU Premier League Kicks Off

It was a cheering moment in Fajuyi hall today as the home team defeated the Machines of Awolowo hall in an opening fixture of the 2013/2014 OAU Premier League. 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.

Also, in the dusty and sandy pitch of Angola hall, ETF hall team controversially whitewashed the home team 6-4 making them the team that has scored most goals in the tournament.

There were massive turnouts at the venues of the two games played today as fans came out in their numbers to support their various teams.
The OAU Premier League is tournament organized by office of  the Director of Sports, Students' Union. The four male Halls of Residence are involved in the competiton; Fajuyi hall, Awolowo hall, Angola hall, and ETF hall.

In a very similar sporting atmosphere, Campus Journalists of Obafemi Awolowo University converged earlier today for a Sport Fiesta. The event which took place at Fajuyi Hall pitch witnessed members of the campus press coming together to engage themselves via various sporting activities amongst which were Football and Draft game. The Sport Fiesta was put together by the executive members of the Association of Campus Journalists(ACJ) for the purpose of bringing all campus journalists together which was achieved after all. Members of the Red Cross Society were also on ground to take care of any unforeseen accident.
