VOLLEYBALL: Kano Pillars, Nigeria Customs through to Men’s Super Cup final; NSCDC, Nigeria Customs too in the Women’s cadre


Kano Pillars and Nigeria Customs Service Volleyball teams have cruised to the final of the Men’s 2020 Nigeria Volleyball Super Cup after they defeated their semi-final foes at the Indoor Sports Hall of the University of Ilorin on Tuesday evening.

To qualify for the final billed for Wednesday, Kano Pillars recovered from a set down to beat favourites NSCDC 3-1 (19-25, 27-25, 27-25, 26-24) in a tension soaked last four encounter while Nigeria Customs Service set up a grand finale clash with Kano Pillars with a resounding 3-0 victory over Sunshine Spikers.

Nigeria Customs dominated the tie to win in three straight sets of 25-16, 25-18, 27-25.

In the women’s cadre, Nigeria Customs Service made it a double with their male team already through to the final. Customs spanked Chief of Army Staff Spikers 3-0 in a comfortable win in Ilorin. Customs cruised to 25-18, 25-18, 25-14 in the semi-final tie.

NSCDC women’s team made amends for the ouster of their men’s counterparts with a 3-0 win over Kada Emeralds in the semi-final on Tuesday. NSCDC men’s team had earlier been beaten by Kano Pillars 3-1 in a semi-final fixture but their women’s team had a roller coaster win over Kada Emeralds whom they beat 25-23, 25-12 and 25-17.

The competition in the men’s and women’s categories comes to an end on Wednesday with the final game in both cadre.
