The semi final matches of the ongoing Governor Masari Preseason Tournament will be decided this evening at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium, Katsina with two mindblowing fixtures.
Zamfara United shocked Wikki Tourists 5-2 in one of the Group B matches and the lower league side still denied the NPFL side a ticket to the semi final. Zamfara United will square up with Niger Tornadoes in the first semi final slated for 4pm today while the second semi final is a battle between Katsina United (1) versus Katsina United (II) by 7:30 pm also this evening.
Meanwhile, Matchday 7 games of the Governor Masari Preseason Tournament which rounded off the group matches were played on Friday also at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium, Katsina.
Katsina United (1) kept their 100 percent record intact with a 9-1 demolition of whipping team, Garkuwa FC while Wikki Tourists thrashed hapless Dadin Kowa 4-0. The Giant Elephants were hoping to pip Zamfara United to the second ticket with a big win but their emphatic 5-2 loss to the same NNL side proved to be their hercules heels as they bowed out due to inferior goals difference to Zamfara United.
Katsina United (II) also finished their group stage games impressively after beating Rarara FC 2-1 while Niger Tornadoes pinned Jnr Katsina United 2-0.
