Hasaacas Ladies Emerge Victors in 5 Goals Thriller

Hasaacas Ladies stepped up the pursuit for another invincible run with a game to go as the team pulled a stunning comeback to secure a 3–2 win against Soccer Intellectuals at the Sekondi Gyandu Park.  

The Visitors shot themselves to an early lead within the first minute through Adina Akpo, but that inspired goals from Doris Boaduwaa, Veronica Kuma Baah and Veronica Appiah to render Intellectuals 88th minute strike a harmless one.

It is the Giants 13th victory in 17 league games setting another record with the most points in a single season – 43 points.

How We Lined Up

Coach Yussif Basigi made 4 changes to the side that conjured to see Hasaacas beat Ashtown Ladies 2 – 0 in the semi-finals of the Women’s FA Cup.

Lawrencia Yeboah, Stephanie Zida, Veronica Kuma Baah and Linda Epo were handed starting place.

Grace Banwaa retained her place in poles; Janet Egyir and Blessing Shine were the usual pair and were flanked by Asana Yahaya and Lucy Kwofie.

Linda Epo, Lawrencia Yeboah and Stephanie Zida were the midfield trio and in attack were Doris Boaduwaa, Veronica Appiah and Veronica Kuma Baah.

What Happened

It was the Visitors that got into the lead within a minute of kick-off as Adina Akpo sent them smiling pretty yet the Giants were too strong to turn the game on its head and going ahead to add a cushioning.

Within a minute, Doris Boaduwaa and Veronica Kuma Baah had propelled the Giants to a lead in the 22nd and the 23rd minutes of the game to take the game to recess.

11 minutes after returning to the field, Veronica Appiah scored a personal goal, her 10th of the season in the Women’s Premier League to help Hasaacas Ladies lead 3–1.

Intellectuals pulled a goal back at the 88th minute but that was just a mere consolation as the game ended 3–2 becoming one of the 3 teams to scored two goals against Hasaacas Ladies this season(Berry Ladies and Police Ladies) yet failing to win and one of the 5 teams to put a ball in Hasaacas Ladies’ net.

What it means

Hasaacas Ladies are currently on 43 points, the most by any team in a single season. Hasaacas Ladies have now set a new record in the Women’s Premier League beating their previous record of 42 points in the 2012/2013 season.
