WPL Playoff Final: Hasaacas Ladies out for revenge against Ampem Darkoa Ladies

All the attention will be at the University of Ghana Stadium on Saturday when Hasaacas Ladies and Ampem Darkoa Ladies go toe-to-toe for the fourth consecutive time in the playoff final of the Malta Guinness Ghana Women’s Premier League.

Both Hasaacas and Ampem Darkoa were winners of the Southern and Northern Zones beating Faith Ladies and Northern Ladies respectively to the titles.
The two teams, Hasaacas and Ampem Darkoa, have faced each other in the last three years with the latter claiming the bragging rights in the last two meetings.

The Hasmal Ladies trimphed in the 2021 meeting as they wallopped Nana Mma in the final 4-0 going on to represent Ghana on the continent.

In their winnings, the Techiman-based side have done it on penalties.

However, both teams will have an opportunity to fight for glory again this season after meeting in the final.
