Bayelsa Queens Thrash Ghana’s Ampem Darkoa To Qualify For 2022 CAF Women’s Champions League

Bayelsa Queens of Nigeria have booked their place at this year’s CAF women’s Champions League, after thrashing Ghana’s Ampem Darkoa Ladies 3-0 in the final of the WAFU Zone B qualifiers in Yamoussoukro, Côte d’Ivoire on Saturday, reports.

First half goals from Miracle Joseph, Falconets star Flourish Sabastine and Chinyere Igbomalu, saw Bayelsa Queens emerge champions and also qualification for this year’s CAF women’s Champions League in Morocco.

Joseph broke the deadlock in the 11th minute from the penalty spot before Sabastine added the second goal on 19 minutes.

And with three minutes left to play in the first half Igbomalu got the third goal to seal the win.

Bayelsa Queens are now the second Nigerian team to participate at the CAF women’s Champions League, after Rivers Angels featured at last year’s maiden edition in Egypt.

    A team from Liberia qualified as part of West Africa over a Ghanaian Female team. It is the same thing we are all saying what’s the propaganda because these Liberian team will be whipped in the tournament proper but North Africa have two strong representatives from Morocco and Egypt.

      My broda!!!! This is daylight robbery on west Africans by CAF. This pure nonsense! Not good for African football at all!

      • Observer 2 years ago

        I am sure CAF knows very well that the two finalists from zone b should qualify just like last edition where Hasacas ladies and Rivers Angels went to Egypt. Why should only one team qualify? Is south Africa afraid of Ghana and Nigeria teams? Ask CAF or should I say ask mamelodi Sundowns.
