Oasis Ladies FC defeated FC Phoenix Queens 1-0 to maintain their perfect start to the 2021 Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Nationwide at the Ijebu Ode centre on Wednesday.
Dolapo Ariori scored her fourth goal in three games for Oasis Ladies to condemn FC Phoenix Queens to their first defeat.
Ola Olaronke scored her second goal to help Royaltoms Queens to a 1-0 win over Moje Queens.
Goals from Mosindi Angela and Akpowonane Glory helped Dannaz Ladies a 2-0 victory against Omidiran Babes.
Dannaz Ladies President, Danny Nazza after the game says his side had to pick themselves up after their defeat to Moje Queens to get a victory over Omidiran Babes.
“I told the players after our first defeat that they are far better than this. Although they are young and won their first match which was a tough game. They won it 2-0. The result got into their heads somehow which made them overconfident. My only motivation to them is that they shouldn’t be losing such a game as I know that they are the best team at this round-robin stage. The whole idea was for them to come together, pick up themselves, and play to win before moving on to the next match.” He told www.kick442.com.
The half Nigerian and Lebanese businessman opined that their game plan worked well against Omidiran Babes.
He said: “There is always a game plan. We observed the opponents to know what they are doing. When we see that we are not penetrating them enough, we tried to bring in our substitutes to be able to suit what they are playing and get the deserved result.”
Dannaz FC was established in 2016.
Dannaz Ladies got to the final of the 2019 Socca Liga in preparation for the NWFL Nationwide League.
They will play Oasis Ladies, FC Phoenix Queens, and Royaltoms Queen’s in their next games in a bid to gain promotion to the NWFL Championship.
