*Whip Naija Ratels 2-0
Courtesy of two second half goals by skillful Chinaza Agoh and midfield trojan Taiwo Afolabi, Delta Queens of Asaba, yesterday, overcame the stubborn resistance of visiting Naija Ratels from Abuja to maintain their top position in Group A in the ongoing female football league.
The encounter took place inside the main bowl of the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.
The Okowa Amazons have now made it four wins on trot with the maximum 12 points.
However, the girls will have themselves to blame if they fail to grab the sole ticket to the elite African Women Champions League later in the year because they have everything going for the team.
They play as a team with the chemistry evident from defence to attack but only falter in finishing because of a seeming disconnect in the midfield that accounted for the unpardonable misses.
The score line could have higher.
Besides, they are motivated in welfare packages their management has offered them to get cracking.
This flaw in the middle of the park was the subject of the pep talk at half time by Chief Tonobok Okowa, the chief motivator of the team.
Chief Okowa, the Executive Chairman, Delta State Sports Commission, pointed out the errors as he offered some tips for rectification. It worked the magic resulting in those two sublime goals.
The girls are away to Port Harcourt next week for a mouth watering clash with Rivers Angels.
