Edo Queens interim Manager Grace Kurah has hailed her players spirited performance, despite losing 2-1 to Bayelsa Queens, in their third game of the NWFL Premiership Super 6 Campaign.
Despite enjoying the chunk of possession and dominance in the first twenty minutes of the game, Edo Queens failed to make it count after missing couple of several golden sitters at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin.
The ‘Obaseki’ Ladies succumbed to Gift Monday’s second half goals in the 47th and 57th minute, before Esther Oyenezide put one back in the 72nd minute.
The Bayelsa Queens forward profited from Lack of concentration from Edo Queens defence to take her goal tally to 6 in the ongoing Super 6.
It was Kurah’s first game incharge of the team, after Wemimo Mathew was unceremoniously dismissed as Head Coach of Edo Queens.
“I am happy with the performance of my players, despite our loss today. It shows how fast they can adapt to conditions like this, after the sack of their manager.
“They played to instruction and am so proud of them. It was a good game and am sure we can still pick out wins from our next two games.
Edo Queens will face Naija Ratels on Friday at the University of Benin Sports Complex by 12pm..
