The quarterfinals of the 2019 Zenith Bank Women League National Final 8 will be decided on Tuesday as competition for the National title and two continental tickets hots up.
The curtain raiser will be between group A winners First Bank and BlackGold of Abuja who finished bottom of Group B at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos by 10:00am.
Current champions First Bank on the back of their unbeaten run which dates back to 2016 will hope to take a step towards winning their 10th National title against new entrants BlackGold.
Team of the moment and one of the early title favourites Air Warriors having finished top of Group B will tackle Plateau Rocks who have failed to win a game at the National Final 8 phase.
The newly formed Air Warriors bankrolled by the Nigerian AirForce will again depend on the trio of double-double Queen, Murjanatu Musa, veteran player Blessing Kasham and Chinwe Okah in their quest to qualify for their first-ever semifinal.
The third game of the day will be between Dolphins and Delta Force.
Having last won the title in 2015 and losing to First Bank in the 2018 finals, all eyes will be on the Coach Peter Ahmedu tutored side when they file out against Delta Force.
The last quarterfinals game promises to be explosive between two evenly matched sides, Customs and MFM Queens.
It will be a grudge match for MFM who were denied a podium finish in 2018 when they lost to Customs in the third-place game.
Semifinal matches will be played on Wednesday.
