Sheroes Cup Wrap: Amazons suck Honey Badgers seven times, Confluence Queens rally late, Edo Queens cruise on

Nasarawa Amazons grabbed the headline as they put seven goals past Honey Badgers on match day 4 of the Sheroes Cup on Monday morning.

Edo Queens continued their flawless streak at the tournament while Delta Queens dropped points for the first time.

Below is the wrap…….

Adamawa Queens 0-2 Edo Queens

Edo Queens humbled Adamawa Queens 2-0 at the Old Parade Ground with Emem Essien and Tosin Ogundeko on target.

Naija Ratels 1-1 Royal Queens

Naija Ratels dominated the game in the opening stages and they managed to take the lead through Bankole Sofiat on eight minutes.

Ijeje Favour equalized for the Warri based side late in the first half.

Delta Queens 2-2 Confluence Queens

Goals from Moses Chioma and Peter Martha in the final 26 minutes earned Confluence Queens a point against Delta Queens.

Delta Queens started the game on fire with Chinaza Agoh stabbing home the opener on five minutes.

Five minutes later, Agoh registered another goal after Confluence Queens failed to clear their lines.

The fightback was sparked by a series of substitutions which brought fresh impetus to the team. Subs Merit Offor and Peter were particularly influential.

Nasarawa Amazons 7-0 Honey Badgers

Nasarawa Amazons thrashed Honey Badgers 7-0 at the FIFA Goal Project Pitch.

First-half strikes from Kesiena Ojiyovwi, Dooshima Tarnum, Amirat Saheed and Edeh Loveth put the Amazons in control at the break, with Badgers failing to attempt a single shot on goal.

Loveth’s effort two minutes before the hour added a fifth for the Christopher Danjuma managed side, before Ahimize Grace brilliantly rifled in her first of the day to make it 6-0.

There was still one more from Grace as she also completed her brace just like Edeh Loveth.

Alan Regina, Goalkeeper of Adamawa Queens

“Well it’s a game, but it actually pained us that we lost, so we have to just go back and correct our mistakes.

“Starting is up to the coaches, I always enjoy every moment when given the chance.”

Loveth Edeh, Nasarawa Amazons player

“I feel very happy scoring a brace for the first time in my career.

“We knew, we were going to win the game, it’s not that they are not in our level but we always have a winning mentality going into any match.”

Patience Agatha, Honey Badgers Captain

“We took the loss in good faith, we tried our best. We are trying hard and looking forward to the next games.

“We are preparing very hard, we have been working and I believe we will get there.”
