Determine Girls of Liberia were crowned Super Cup Champions four days after securing a historic qualification to the 2022 CAF Women’s Champions League.
League and cup double winners Determined Girls demonstrated resilience as they came from behind a Dekontee Jackson’s composed finish to win Ambassadors 3-1 in the women’s Super Cup.
A Ruth Wisseh standout performance saw her score two brilliant long-range goals as Determined Girls came from a goal down to win Ambassadors FC 3-1.
In a slow start to the first half, Ambassadors finished on top against rivals Determined Girls but failed to strike as both sides had a goal each rightfully ruled out for offside.
Determined Girls Gambian center half Ruggy Joof struggled for fitness as she dropped to the floor at least four times in the first half and was replaced.
In the second period, Decontee Jackson kept her nerves and coolly finished from close range to put Ambassadors noses in front, but the celebration never lasted long.
Ruth Wisseh levelled the contest with a free kick from nearly 40 yards before star player Bountou Sylla calmly converted from the spot to put the champions 2-1in front for the first time in the match.
A moment of Wisseh confirmed the victory when she volleyed another long-range effort from open play that hit the underside of the bar before going in to give Determined Girls an unassailable 3-1 lead.
The champions held on firmly to win a second honor in three days following the capture of the WAFU Zone A Champions League qualifiers trophy in Monrovia on Sunday, 21 August.
It was their fourth trophy in the 2022 calendar year as the team has won the Liberian league, Cup, WAFU-A Zonal Qualifiers, and now the Super Cup.
The new women’s league season in Liberia kicks off on 24 September.
