Sunyani Prison Ladies will engage Techiman based Ampem Darkoa Ladies at the Sunyani Coronation Park today in the biggest match day three fixture of the ongoing Normalisation Committee’s Special Women’s football competition.
The build up to the clash has seen tension rise with both sets of supporters expressing confidence of undoing the other.
Head Coach of Ampem Darkoa Ladies, Nana Joe Adakwah holds the magic wand over his opponents, having beaten them in his first game against them away and inflicted a 5-1 away win before going ahead to defend the Women’s Super Cup with a 1-0 win over them.
Prison Ladies are also on record to have eliminated Ampem Darkoa Ladies from last year’s aborted Sanford Women’s FA Cup competition, beating them on penalties following a 2-2 draw in regulation time.
Surprisingly, Prisons Ladies lie at the foot of the table with a single point, having lost 2-1 to Pearlpia Ladies before drawing 2-2 with Northern Ladies mid-week.
In the other group game, Pearlpia Ladies who are joint leaders with Ampem Darkoa will host Northern Ladies at the Ultrecht Park with the aim of stretching the lead on the log and put themselves in a good position to qualify for the next round.
Group A leaders Kumasi Sports Academy will play host to Kumasi Ashtown Ladies at the Prempeh College Park.
Both teams are tied on four points apiece and a win for either side would see them urge closer to qualification to the next round.
Fabulous Ladies who lie in third place on two points will trek to the Kumasi Girls Park as guest of bottom place Supreme Ladies.
Leaders Elmina Sealions will stay put at the Ndoum Stadium to play Ladystrikers in a Group C encounter while joint group leaders Soccer Intellectuals square up with Hasaacas Ladies at the UEW Park in Winneba.
High flying Police Ladies, the only team in the competition yet to drop points will trek to the ATTC Park in Kokomlemle to face the might of Samaria Ladies while Immigration Ladies who are yet to record a single point welcome Halifax Ladies to the St. Thomas Aquinas Park tomorrow.
