Black Queens Defeat Burkina Faso Again

The Black Queens defeated the Stallions of Burkina Faso 3-0 to reach the second round of the Africa Women’s Championship qualifiers at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

The Black Queens recorded a convincing 6-0 aggregate following their first leg thrashing of the Stallions in Ouagadougou a fortnight ago.

The Queens went ahead after Faisa Ibrahim connected well a Mercy Berko cross from the right in the 22nd minute.

Four minutes later, Agnes Aduako expertly converted from the spot to double the lead after an opponent handled the ball in the 18 yard box.

Portia Boakye came close to registering her name in the score sheet but her effort was well saved by the Stallions goalie Sanou Ami three minutes to end the first half.

From recess, the Queens determined the pace, pilling pressure on their opponent who were looking for a consolation.

Aduako’s brace in the 75th was all Yusif Basigi’s side needed to march on.

Ghana are hoping to book a place in the 2014 Africa Women Championship in Namibia, October.
