Milot Pokuaa and Doris Boaduwaa continued their impressive form with first half goals as Hasaacas Ladies ended the first round of the 2019/2020 National Women’s League campaign with a 2-1 win afield to Halifax Ladies…
Champions Hasaacas Ladies traveled to the Tema Stadium to play the last game of the first phase of the season against Halifax Ladies.
Coach Yusif Basigi was without experience duo Janet Egyir and Linda Eshun who are currently on national team duties with the Black Queens.
At their absence, Francisca Asante and Linda Afriyie were called to duty encouraging some needful inter-positional changes in the team.
Queenabel Amankwah and Regina Antwi paired at the heart of the defense whiles Linda Afriyie combined with Evelyn Badu in the middle. Francisca Asante slotted in at the right back position and Vida Ofori manned the left back role.
The attacking quartet was unchanged; Milot Pokuaa, Doris Boaduwaa led the attack flanked by Perpetual Agyekum and Comfort Owusu.
Just some few moments into the game and our intentions were very clear for the full marks on the day with attacks from Milot Pokuaa and Evelyn Badu inching whiskers away from goal.
Champions Hasaacas Ladies broke the deadlock on the 30th minute; Milot Pokuaa sent her goal tally for the season to 10 and her attacking partner Doris Boaduwaa added another, her 9th of the season to put the Giants 2-0 up before the break.
Back from recess and it was the Hosts[Halifax Ladies] who knocked the surface in search of something out of the game.
Halifax Ladies deservedly pulled a goal back via Monica Addai to slash the lead into half with 30 more minutes to end the game.
Addai’s goal was the first conceded by Hasaacas Ladies in 540 minutes since our match day two 2-1 defeat to Police Ladies.
Dangerous attacks fell on the path of both sides but try as they did none of the teams could breach the defense as the game ended 2-1 for Hasaacas Ladies.
The Champions has now extended the points tally to 15 points and hold a 4 point gap at the top of the table – Soccer Intellectuals and Police Ladies have a game in hand.
