Women’s D1 League: Ningo Ladies defeat Accra Ladyz in 12-goal thriller



Ningo Ladies proved to be a no match for Accra Ladyz when the two sides met in week three of the ongoing Women’s Division One League at the Madina AstroTurf.

Ningo Ladies put up a spectacular performance in the game, scoring eleven goals.

Accra Ladyz, who, before this game, secured a 3-0 win over John Michaels Ladies, could only get one consolation goal against Ningo Ladies through a Nuweira Nasir Larry effort.

Coach of Ningo Ladies, Evans Addo Wilson, praised his ladies for their performance.

He says that they will continue to work hard to record more victories in the league.

“I am happy but I will congratulate the girls for their hard work and for listening to the instructions I gave them. Our next game is going to be more than this. Our players are new so we are building the club on an academy model. so will take it game after game,” Coach Evans Addo Wilson told UniversSports after the game.

Coach Addo Wilson was not so surprised at the 11-1 scoreline as he planned to attack more.

“Our plan was to play a more attacking game and to record more goals and that is what we saw,” he added.

Accra Ladyz gaffer, Believe Elijah, speaking to the media after the game said that the team was rather focused on its future.

“For this league, we are just playing for the future, training the players for the future. We are not looking at the scores, we just play for the exposure, and the following season, we see how we can put ourselves together. Our target is not necessarily winning,” he said.

The former football coach of the Elizabeth Frances Sey Hall at the University of Ghana added that a significant number of his key players were engaged in academic activities, hence, unavailable to join the team for league matches.

“Most of our key players are in school. Some too left last week because they were in JHS. Others too are in their final year of Senior High School and are preparing for their final exams. Even for this game, we didn’t train. But like I said, it is not about scores,”

Meanwhile, Coach Believe Elijah is calling for financial support to help establish the club.

Coach Elijah says he is struggling to keep things together as he has no reliable source of funding for the club.

“We are looking at loaning the players to different teams next season and come back in the next two seasons or allowing someone to take over the team because financially, I’m the only one. and it’s just by God’s grace. I have to go soliciting for funds so you can see that I was the only one on the bench,” he said.
