Then then went all the way to RIVIERA GOLF in ABIDJAN COTE D’IVOIRE…to play the very First American Football Club Action in West Africa dubbed #SANKOFABOWL and  came out Victorious…Not to take anything away from their Ivorian Brothers…the Game was a Competition…a very close one…But Lagos Marines are the #SANKOFABOWL Champions 2017….Lagos Marines won 13 – 12. The second leg is in Lagos on a date to be decided.

The team spent three days in Cape Coast. They ran daily clinics on the Oasis Beach in the afternoon and visited schools in the morning to introduce the game.

The PE Master of Jacob Wilson Sey Basic School recommended the team for their exposure of the game to his pupils, He also added that there is a need to train coaches who will take off from there they have started.

We came in contact with Lagos Marines when our 12U Team visited Lagos for a tournament.

We are looking forward to more collaboration in the nearest future.
