The Alaba International Electronics Super League  2021  which has been  on for some weeks, came  to a successful end on Sunday when defending champions, Zone 10  defeated their Zone 9 counterparts 1-0  to retain the title.
In an entertaining  encounter decided at  the  play ground  of Lagos State University, Ojo, both teams displayed good football artistry  to the delight of hundreds  of fans who trooped out to watch the match but  it was Zone 10 that carried the day  after scoring the only goal of the match in the second  half. Prior to the final game, Zone 12 had  earlier  beaten Zone 7 by 1-0  to win the third place match.
Presenting  medals and trophies to the winning team, Chairman of  Alaba  International Market Evangelist Paulinus Ugochukwu  who was assisted by both past and present executive members,  commended all the players for their sportsmanship throughout  the duration of the competition  noting that the decision to re- introduce the  tournament which was last held in 2015, was to  encourage  friendship and recreation among the traders.
