After the game, the new champion said he had a great match with Pratt, adding that his opponent was over confidence.
â€œPratt is a good squash player. He always beat me during our trainings, but today (Saturday) I was more determined and played better to win the match,â€ said Adegoke, who is a student of Aje Comprehensive High School, Sabo, Yaba.
Chairman, Lagos State Squash Racket Association, Edward Omotesho, expressed satisfaction with the standard of play, officiating and organisation of the tourney.
