A brace from Maafia Nyame and a superb goal from Jennifer Kankam were enough to overcome Mary Amponsah’s only goal for Ampem Darkoa Ladies.

The first half looked very exciting as both sides seemed very strong in their halves, giving no chance for the forwards to make their way through. 

Ampem Darkoa Ladies, who were seen to be the favourites in the final clash kept the ball to themselves, releasing it like it was nobody’s business to widen up the midfield of their opponents to grab an early goal.

Their efforts finally paid off in the 15th minute with a beautiful goal as Amponsah managed to grab an opener to put her side in the lead. 

Both sides came into the second half looking very strong after some pep talk from their coaches. 

Ampem Darkoa Ladies was still in control of the game until a solid finish from Faith Ladies’ Nyame was all the team needed to begin their comeback campaign. 

Faith Ladies kept on mounting the pressure on the league champions, using the wings as an easy route to break the defence of their opponents.

The extra time was really an intense one as both teams were more physical on the pitch than being tactical with their play, as the defenders of the two sides kept their lines clean in the early minutes of the game. 

Nyame once again got her name on the score sheet 20 minutes into the second half with a beautiful goal to beat the Ampem Darkoa wall.

Faith Ladies’ Kankam found the net to inflict more pain on their opponents in the dying minutes of the game to put the game to bed.  -GNA
