Royal Queens 1 Abia Angels 0.
It was a difficult game for Royal Queens at home as they kept searching for a goal until they got it in the 73rd minute through Rosemary Adesina.
It was a frantic match as alot of goal scoring opportunities were not converted from both sides. Jane Abraham had a chance early in the first half to score for Abia Angels, but failed to beat Alamah Onyewee in the Royal Queens goalpost.
The win sees Paul Mene record his first victory in the NWFL Premiership.
Royal Queens will face Ibom Angels in Uyo on matchday three, while Abia Angels welcome Dreamstar Ladies at home.
Dreamstar Ladies 0 Edo Queens 1.
The Galaticas lost their second match of the season when Edo Queens came visiting at the Agege Township Stadium.
Unexpectedly, DreamStar Ladies Captain Juliet Emereole’s own goal ensured victory for the Rollandson Odeh’s side and the ‘Obaseki Girls’ will now welcome Rivers Angels nextweek.
Rivers Angels 6 Delta Queens 2.
Brume Ikekhua and Dominance Odubanjo scored twice for their clubs as the ‘Jewels of Rivers’ recorded a comprehensive victory over neigbours Delta Queens.
It was the second brace for the Delta Queens striker, but her goals couldn’t help her side from the rampant Rivers Angels team.
Micheal Angela’s own goal made it three for Rivers Angels before Maryann Ezeanagu, Deborah Abiodun and Cynthia Aku scored to make it 6-2.
Delta Queens next game is against Sunshine Queens in Agbor.
Sunshine Queens 2 Confluence Queens 0.
Seun Fakunle and Goodness Onyebuchi both scored at the Ondo State Sports Complex to give Sunshine Queens a comfortable home win over visitors, Confluence Queens.
Fakunle’s goal came from a great assist by Akudo Ogbonna early in the 8th minute before captain Goodness Onyebuchi doubled the ‘Betty Babes’ lead in the 59th minute.
The ‘New Direction’ Ladies pushed harder late in the second half to half their deficit, but failed to hit the net. Glory Edet was impressive in the game, as she kept pushing and inspiring her teammates from the back. Confluence Queens will welcome Nasarawa Amazons at the Confluence Stadium on Wednesday.
Pelican Stars 1 Ibom Angels 1.
Ogechi Ukwuoma’s late goal denied Ibom Angels Manager Moruf Adeyemo his first win of the 2021 NWFL Premiership season as Pelican Stars earned a 1-1 draw at their homeground, U. J Usuene Stadium, Calabar.
Uduakaobong Peter looked to have secured all three points for the ‘Orange Ladies’ after she scored in the 47th minute, but Pelican Stars continued pressing until they were rewarded late on.
Pelican Stars will travel to Osogbo to face Osun Babes nextweek, while Ibom Angels will be at home to Royal Queens.
Nasarawa Amazons 1 Bayelsa Queens 2
Definitely a dejavu for Nasarawa Amazons Manager Christopher Danjuma losing to Bayelsa Queens by 2-1, same scoreline recorded in 2019. Only that Anjor Mary scored just once this time around in the 24th minute, before Amarachi Okoronkwo equalised in the 55th minute to give the ‘Solid Babes’ an array of hope in the game but Joy Bokiri’s late strike gave the visitors the maximum points.
Perhaps the worst start for Christopher Danjuma since he became head coach of Nasarawa Amazons and will definitely be looking at redeeming his side’s battered image when they travel down to the Confluence Stadium to face Confluence Queens nextweek.
