Waldrum, was named Super Falcons Manager in 2020 and has since made a meaningful impact in the way the team has been playing.
Bayelsa Queens Aderemi Mary scored for the Prosperity Girls in the 16 minutes of play, the goal came as a result of their high pressing which caused the Super Falcons defence into mistakes. The first half ended one-nil.
On resumption of the second half, the Super Falcons started well and would have scored in the 47 and 49 minutes through Asisat Oshoala and Rashidat Anibade, but for the heroics of Bayelsa Queens goalkeeper, Oyinyechukwu Okeke.
The NWFL Premiership Champions held on until the 90 minutes when Onome Ebi equalized with a powerful header from a corner kick to end the game 1-1.
Bayelsa Queens Coach Moses Aduku, said it was a good test for his team as they prepares for the upcoming WAFU B CAF Champions League and AITEO CUP competitions and added that his players ability to listen to the coaches instructions showed they are ready to represent Nigeria at the continent.
Super Falcons coach, Randy Waldrum, said Bayelsa Queens are the best club side in Nigeria and that they gave the Falcons a good parting gift as the team is leaving for Morocco today (Friday) to defend their title.
