Ogbe-Ijaw Grammar School defeated Udu Secondary School, Otor-Udu 2-1 to get to this stage.
The second semifinal tomorrow will see Amai Secondary School taking on Master Care International School at the Agbor Stadium.
Speaking in Warri, the CEO of the organising company, Hideaplux Limited, Warri, Tony Pemu, said it had been a fantastic championship so far.
He however advised the remaining four teams to be at their best and shun any act of hooliganism that might affect the smooth running of the competition since the preliminary stage.
â€œWith just three matches to end the competition, I can say it has been a success so far,â€ Pemu said.
â€œAll the teams have shown that talents are abound in the country and I just want to advise them to continue their sportsmanship attitude.
â€œI am happy with everything and I expect the last four matches to be more interesting for the players and football fans in the state.â€
The final is scheduled for May 20 at the Ultra-modern stadium in Ozoro.
