After the postponement of five out of seven Match Day Three fixtures to Thursday, December 24, due to the late arrival of match officials, two NWFL games went ahead on Wednesday.
Delta Queens 1-0 Sunshine Queens
Delta Queens returned to winning ways after last week 6-2 bashing in the hands of Rivers Angels with a slim 1-0 home win against Sunshine Queens of Akure.
After a goalless first half, new entrant, Amarachi Orjinma scored the winning goal for Delta Queens after a goalmouth scramble in the 52nd minute.
The victory was Delta Queens’ second win of the 2021 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership season after their opening day 4-1 win over Dreamstar FC Ladies. The game was the first game that will see top scorer, Odubanjo Dominance failing to score after her two goals against Dreamstar and Rivers Angels respectively.
