Onyeka Mbanu at the on-going NCC tennis League.

Team Ndoma-Egba at the weekend won the four matches they needed to win their home tie against Team Goshen of Ilorin to secure the second semifinal spot in the White Group.

With four points in the bag Team Ndoma-Egba now place second behind defending champions Team Offikwu no matter the result in Jos where Team Tech Vibe faced Team Goshen.

Former national champion, Thomas Otu got the host team on their way with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Wale Babalola in the first match and Paul Emmanuel defeated Joseph Iyorovbe 7-5, 6-3 to increase the tally.

Aanu Aiyegbusi survived a long drawn second set in the ladies’ singles match against Patience Onebamhoin to win 6-0, 7-5.

Not leaving any thing to chance, Team Ndoma-Egba fielded two former national champions, Otu and Sunday Maku in the men’s doubles against Iyorovbe and Chima Iwuagwu and won 6-3, 6-4.

The win established an unassailable lead with three matches – two men’s reverse singles and the mixed doubles – slated for yesterday.
