Veronica Kumah Baah and Linda Epo scored to aid Hasaacas Ladies’ resurgence to the summit of the Southern Zone Malta Guinness Women’s Premier League log with a 2–0 win against Thunder Queens.
Hasaacas Ladies continued the home winning streak with sixth home win of the season to close in to same points against Army Ladies on the summit of the league log.
Coach Yussif Basigi had to deal with a lineup without Linda Eshun and Abiba Issah the two center backs that have featured throughout the season in all league games due to accumulated cards.
Doris Boaduwaa had to settle for a place on the bench due to slight illness.
Grace Banwaa was in poles this time; and a makeshift of Faustina Nyame Aidoo and Success Ameyaa as the center backs of the afternoon.
Fatimata Fuseini and Comfort Owusu were on the left and right defensive flanks respectively.
Fidous Yakubu, Doreen Copson, Abigail Sakyiwaa and Ama Bennie Appiah made up the midfield while Veronica Kumah Baah and Fatoumata Tamboura settled as the attacking duo.
It was all Hasmal affairs from the blast of Referee Mortu Gloria Yayra’s whistle. Hasaacas Ladies pounded the surface and threatened for the opener until the 45th minute of the first half when Veronica Kumah Baah’s unlikeliest of strikes bounced off the goal area to produce the game’s opener.
Hasaacas Ladies returned from the recess and shown much more intent upfront with Linda Epo introduced for Ama Bennie Appiah; the midfielder’s first touch of the ball connected beautifully to Comfort Owusu’s cross to record the game’s opener on the 59th minute.
Chances fell on the paths of Fatoumata Tamboura and Veronica Kumah Baah yet the 2–0 was all that Yussif Basigi’s lads could settle for to end the game.
Hasaacas Ladies are now tied on same 26 points with Army Ladies FC and better with two more goal difference advantage.
The team’s attention will now be turned to the quarter finals of the Women’s FA Cup against Thunder Queens which will be played on the weekend of March 17 and 20, 2023.
