CAF WCL: Rivers Angels Crash Out Despite 4-0 Win Against Kenya’s Vihiga Queens

Rivers Angels have been eliminated from the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League, despite a comfortable 4-0 win against Vihiga Queens of Kenya in their final Group B game, Completesports.com reports.

Going into Friday’s fixture, Rivers Angels needed to beat Vihiga Queens by a wide margin and hope South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns defeat Asfar of Morocco.

Unfortunately, Asfar managed to hold Mamelodi Sundowns to a goalless draw which saw both teams advance into the semi-finals.

Rivers Angels went into the game against Vihiga Queens on the back of two defeats against Asfar (3-0) and Sundowns (1-0).

After a goalless first half, Rivers registered their first goal of the tournament in 71 minutes, thanks to Vivian Ikechukwu from the penalty spot.

In the 79th minute, Rivers Angels doubled their lead again from the penalty spot through Ikechukwu.

Rivers Angels continued to probe for more goals and were rewarded on 82 minutes this time off Oluwadamilola Koku.

And with four minutes left, Gift Monday rounded up the scoring by getting the fourth goal.
