Bayelsa Queens 2-1 Edo Queens: Monday Gift’s double nails home team


.Super Falcons star scores sixth goal in three games

Bayelsa Queens continued with their impressive start to the ongoing NWFL Super 6 in Benin City after they pipped hosts Edo Queens 2-1 to make it three wins out of three games.

The Prosperity Ladies had beaten reigning champions, Rivers Angels on Monday before following that up with a 4-0 whiplash of Naija Ratels on Tuesday.

Just like it was on Tuesday when Monday Gift scores a hat-trick, the on loan striker from FC Robo Queens, that narrowly missed the season ending playoffs, netted twice in the 47th and 57th minutes to extend her excellent goal record to six goals from three games in the Super 6 only.

The Super Falcons attacker scored the first goal of the evening two minutes into the second half when she got to the end of a good pass from Etim Edidiong and she doubled Bayelsa Queens’ lead 10 minutes later after she dribbled past Shukurat Oladipo inside the Edo Queens half and expertly shot beyond the reach of Edo Queens goalie.

The home staring second successive defeat reduced the tally through Esther Onyenezide’s wonder strike in the 72nd minute but they were unable to muster a comeback as Bayelsa Queens’ cruise control continued without let up in Benin.

Bayelsa Queens are in first spot after three games with maximum nine points but they have played a game more than second placed Nasarawa Amazons who have six points from two games.

Today, Bayelsa Queens will trade tackles with Delta Queens who are yet to register a win or score a goal after three games, at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin while second placed Nasarawa Amazons will face their stiffest challenge of the ongoing Super 6 when they square up with reigning champions, Rivers Angels at the UNIBEN Sports Complex, Ugbowo, Benin.
