Roller coaster start to the season

Fegocowosa CC's start to the 2011/12 season has been a bit of a roller coaster. A heavy opening game loss to the ever formidable BRF CC was followed by an equally emphatic victory over the youthful Ibeju Lekki outfit.

Emmanuel Okwudili compiled a magnificent 85 against the tough BRF attack, including one imperious 6 onto the pavilion roof at TBS, but only Prosper Mgbanwa (23) was able to lend any support, and a total of 167 all out never looked like being enough. BRF overhauled our total at a canter, thanks to a pugnacious 80* from ex-national skipper Endurance Ofem.

Against Ibeju-Lekki, our 4 prong pace attack was on song, as we bundled the youngsters out for just 70. A couple of indifferent shots saw us lose 4 wickets in reply, but in truth the result was never in doubt. This weekend is a blank for us, before we lock horns with GCI Old Boys in a match which will give a big indication as to which end of the table we will be fighting at come the end of the season.
