It was a difficult start to the game where the Moroccans gasped impressively for an upset but it was Hasaacas Ladies that did the most important thing; two threats infront of goal which went whiskers off target.
Before long, Perpetual Agyekum sent in a good cross which was perfectly connected by Doris Boaduwaa to send the entire stadium to a frenzy mood.
The team again reorganized and threatened for the second but the Moroccans came in stronger in the dying embers of the half to secure an equalizer after a cross from the left side of our defense was connected at the 41st minute.
After recess, Hasaacas Ladies began bossing play and should have gone ahead when Doris Boaduwaa teed a perfect pass but the connection was a little bit off target.
Around the 60th minute mark the referee pointed to the spot after Evelyn Badu was brought down in the box by the goalkeeper; Perpetual Agyekum stepped up and her kick whacked the goal post.
Try as we did, it had to take Evelyn Badu on the 78th minute to snatch a point for Hasmal, her timing was perfect as she met Doris Boaduwaa’s cross to put as ahead.
Full time and Hasaacas Ladies led 2-1 and an advance ticket to the final.
The team now awaits the winner between Mamelodi Sundowns and Malabo Kings for Friday, November 19, 2021 final.
