The 2018 Bet9jaSociaLiga playoffs lived up to its hype as Bravos Knights and SCN Ladies booked their places in the grand finale following a brilliant day of football at the Vocational Center in Isheri, Magodo, on Saturday. Bravos defeated Raineri 4-1 in the Mainland Coneference while SCN reaffirmed their superiority over defending champions, Saints Ladies, in the Women’s Liga with a penalty shootout win.

With their backs against the wall & in desperate need of a miracle to save their playoff hopes, attacker, Bobo was the hero of the day in one of the biggest upsets in SociaLiga’s 3-year history. Bobo grabbed a brace to put Citizens 2-0 and send their fans running wild in the stands. First, he hit a ferocious shot into the back of the net and then he displayed the calmness of a veteran surgeon by coolly slotting home his second. Dannaz responded by launching several attacks and Joshua Obakimi pulled one back but Citizens held on for their first competitive win since the 6th of May, 2017. Earlier in the day, defending champions, Saints FC had bounced back from consecutive defeats (both to Dannaz FC) to pick up a 3-1 win over Alphas FC. The result meant Saints FC have now qualified for the playoffs for a record 3 times in a row & with one more spot in the Island Conference up for grabs, Alphas & Citizens have to battle right to the end.
