Ibom Angels zoom to S/final of first Lady's Football competition

Posted : 22 February 2024

Goals from Ugobest Osuji and Abasiofon Uwah helped Ibom Angels FC secure their position in the ongoing First Lady's female football competition in Calabar. The Match Day 2 encounter, played at the main bowl of U. J. Esuene Stadium, saw Obubra Queens FC succumb to a 2-0 loss against Ibom Angels FC.

A powerful header by Ugobest Osuji in the 80th minute, following a corner kick, opened the scoring for the Orange Ladies in the encounter. At the 82nd minute, with the assistance of Ugobest Osuji, Abasiofon Uwah added another goal, maintaining the scoreline at 2-0.

Recall that Ibom Angels FC lost their first game to Unical Malabresses by a goal to nil. The Orange Ladies are on break and will resume on Friday against either Imo Strikers FC or Pelican Stars FC in the semi-finals.

Ibom Angels FC is in Group B alongside Unical Malabresses and Obubra Queens FC, while Group A is made up of Pelican Stars, Imo Strikers, and Nkor Academy.

Reacting to his team's performance at the tournament, Coach Edwin Okon expressed happiness with the girls' performance, especially in the second game, hoping for the team to improve in subsequent matches. "It's a new team, not yet ripe for anything. By God's grace, we're in the semi-finals. Thank God for the position we've found ourselves. We've improved in our last game over the first and are targeting to improve more in our next game," said Edwin Okon.
