There are no teams left unbeaten in the current campaign of the Nigerian Womens Football League [NWFL] after the only two sides yet to taste a defeat in Naija Ratels and Rivers Angels had their backs hit the dust with losses in their games this Matchday.
High-flying newcomers Naija Ratels saw their unbeaten run come to an end after falling 1-0 at home inside the Area 10 complex, Abuja to Nasarawa Amazons. Tarnum Dooshima’s strike on the 27th minute did the damage.
Elsewhere at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium Benin, Osun Babes saw their poor run of form continue as they were walloped 3-0 against Edo Queens. Adaobi Okah opened scoring two minutes past the half-hour mark, Yemisi Samuel doubled Edo’s advantage 23 minutes from stoppage time while Adaobi Okah nailed the coffin four minutes later.
At the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Delta Queens put five goals past Royal Queens of Warri.
Peace Abbey gave the home side the lead in the 14th minute before Taiwo Afolabi in the 22nd. Rebecca Ajegbemile made it three before Tosin Ogundeko pulled what would be the only goal for the Warri side back two minutes after restart. Comfort Folorunsho made it 4-1 from the spot in the 52nd minute and the Chinansa Agoh completed the rout three minutes from stoppage time.
Itimi Mercy’s 25th minute deadlock breaker was all Bayelsa Queens needed at the Nembe Township Stadium to hand high-flying Rivers Angels their first loss of the season. Also it was the first time the Port-harcourt based side would concede a goal this season.
