Ultimate Football Academy of Omuko edged defending champions, Pro Leaguers 8-7 on penalties after a goalless ninety minutes to progress to the final of the competition.

The match which saw few chances came to life in the second half when the defending champions, Pro Leaguers grew into the game after a subdued first half performance but fell short of end result.

Ultimate Academy goalkeeper, Musa Usman was instrumental in keeping his side in the game after denying Pro Leaguers series of brilliant saves during the contest.

Substitute Doyin Olowoshaye could have won the game for Pro Leaguers after he faced Usman with the last chance of the game but the young shot stopper was up to the task to send the game to shootouts.
