Prisons Ladies lost 1-0 to Ashtown Ladies on match day 9 of the Women’s Premier League at the Sunyani Coronation Park. Prisons Ladies, second on the league log, 9 points behind leaders, Ampem Darkoa Ladies, needed to win to keep their slim hopes of winning the zone.
Ashtown Ladies, who lied 4th in the league table before kick-off, couldn’t afford a defeat either, as that would all but end any hope they may have for winning the zone.
The game started on an explosive note with both sides clearly demonstrating that they were in no mood to mess up.
The first opportunity came the way of Prisons Ladies, when Helena Obeng beat her markers and had goalkeeper of Ashtown Ladies, Joyce Boateng at her mercy. However, she couldn’t pick her spot, and wasted the opportunity.
Ashtown Ladies quickly returned the onslaught and Agnes Owusu could have put them ahead but she couldn’t beat goalkeeper Azume Adams in the goalposts of Prisons Ladies.
Prisons Ladies continued piling pressure on Ashtown Ladies but could not unlock the solid defensive partnership of Lily Afriyie and Veronica Darkwa of Ashtown Ladies as the first half ended goalless.
The second half of the game started with Ashtown Ladies on the front foot. Ella Afriyie, Fiduous Yakubu, Oforiwaa Alice, and Comfort Baah Nuako combined to devastating effect.
On the 52nd minute, a brilliant build up by Ashtown Ladies provided an opportunity for Oforiwaa Alice, who sent a beautiful cross into the penalty area of Prisons Ladies which was clinically connected by Comfort Baah Nuako.
Prisons Ladies being pegged back began pilling pressure on Ashtown Ladies in a bid to find the equaliser.
Helena Obeng, who had wasted the first opportunity of the game, got three more goal-bound opportunities to pull parity for her side but her profligacy in front of goal was the bane for her side.
Both sides effected changes, with Rebecca Atinga and Nida Mensah replacing Rita Okyere and Shirley Sosi for Prisons Ladies.
Awuni Victoria, and Abubakari Hawa were also introduced by Ashtown Ladies.
Ashtown Ladies successfully repelled all the attacks by Prisons Ladies and won the game by a goal to nil.
Comfort Baah Nuako was adjudged the best player of the game.
