The IHF Trophy Africa – Zone III has reached the last days of competition with Nigeria remaining as the only unbeaten team in both the junior (born on or after January 1, 1998) and youth (born on or after January 1, 2000) competitions.


After the completion of the Preliminary Round of two groups each in both age groups, Niger (NIG), Burkina Faso (BUR), Nigeria (NGR) and Benin (BEN) will make up the semi-finals in both competitions, with the final four teams in action today, 13 April 2018.


Both competitions see Niger play Burkina Faso and Nigeria take on Benin in the semi-finals, with the winners playing each other on Saturday (14th April) for the title.


Yesterday Cote d’Ivoire beat Togo in the junior 5/6 Placement Match 26:19. In the youth competition, Ghana’s non-appearance rendered a 5/6 Placement Match unnecessary and the Preliminary Round was taken into consideration. Therefore, Cote d’Ivoire – who had beaten Togo 23:26 – finish on 5th place.
