Atiku Bagudu BSC had to fight hard to beat Kabawan Kanta BSC by six goals to five in one of the games of the season. Both teams were equally matched and looked like title contenders.
Iliyasu Sports BSC handed Adamu Augie BSC a heavy 7-1 defeat as they secured their first win in the Super 4 to go level on points with Kabawan Kanta BSC whom they lost to on Day 1.
With two games played, the stage was set for an exciting final matchday. Atiku Bagudu BSC was in a strong position to win the Super 4, with six points from their opening two matches. However, Kabawan Kanta BSC and Iliyasu Sports BSC were locked on three points each and were in with a chance of emerging as Champions. Atiku Bagudu BSC needed to avoid defeat against a strong Iliyasu Sports BSC, to clinch the trophy, while a win for Kabawan Kanta also put them in contention for the title.
On the third and final matchday, Kabawan Kanta BSC thrashed Adamu Augie 11-1 earning six points in the earlier kick-off, while they waited for a favourable result in the later game. However, the dominant Atiku Bagudu BSC didn’t let any team stand in their way as they defeated a strong Iliyasu Sports BSC to claim the title of first-ever KBSL Champions.
