The 300 level students of Faculty of law in a final match on Friday, 5th July 2019, defeated 400 level with 1-0 at University of Ilorin Main Bowl.

The match started at about 5:30pm in the evening with tenacious earnest on the faces of the two teams. Some minutes before the half time, the 400 level class was awarded a penalty kick, following a reckless tackle committed against Olori David on the box by a 300 level defender. Unfortunately, Adebayo Azeez (Ballack) lost the penalty which hit the woodwork.

In the second half, the two sides had various attempts to score but to no avail. However, tardily towards the late minutes of the second half, the 300 level class had a free kick just a few metres away from the box. A through pass, that caught the 400 level defence unawares, obliged Oloyede Olatunji Abdullateef the chance to successfully find the net and sink the hope of their contenders into Bermuda triangle. The goal, which was eventually the winning goal, was ceremoniously celebrated with different styles of jubilation.

Other sports featured in the festivity was an athletic event, which included 100 metres, 200 metres and Relay race.
