IHF Women's Trophy Intercontinental Phase: Nigeria in Semi Final after victory over North Caledonia

Posted : 01 March 2024

Nigeria's women's U-18 handball team has qualified for the semi-finals of the IHF Women's Trophy Intercontinental Phase in Uzbekistan, following their 29-14 victory over North Caledonia on Thursday.

The team, coached by Shittu Adewunmi Agboola, carried the momentum from the previous day's victory into the match. They approached the game with the same determination that led them to defeat Guadalupe, comfortably taking the first half 15-7.

In the second half, North Caledonia staged a comeback with purposeful play, but they faced goalkeeper Kehinde Babatunde, who, as the team captain, made some breathtaking saves that inspired the girls to secure a 29-14 victory.

Captain Kehinde Babatunde was awarded the title of the most outstanding player of the match. Her sister, Taiwo Babatunde, had been voted the MVP in their previous match against Guadaloupe.

Nigeria will find out their semi-final opponent at the end of the day's fixtures.
