Berry Ladies FC 4-1 Ridge City FC: Three goals in the final 25 minutes broke Ridge City Football Women’s stubborn resistance to give Coach Freeman’s side a deserved victory at the Madina Astroturf.
Berry Ladies FC led through Maybel Amoyaw’s penalty kick goal, but Ridge City Football Club Women barely seen as an attacking force, managed to grab an equalizer by levelling against the run of play when Celestine Boye scored a penalty kick as well on the 24th minute.
Jafaru Rahama restored our lead with a close-range dribble and finish and Portia Sakyiwaa fired in a third in the 73rd minute, before Priscilla Agyemang played a long shot in on the rebound in the 77th minute to complete the scoring.
Victory sees Berry Ladies Football Club, who are unbeaten in 3 straight games since Coach Freeman took over as the main Coach in 2023, move 13 points up the League – who face Hasaccas Ladies Football Club on February 12th, 2023, at Home (Madina Astroturf)
Jafaru Rahama, named woman of the match (MVP), spoke to Berry Ladies FC Media Team. “It was a tough game … I think we started very, very good … we could have killed the game in the first half… second half was more difficult, they pressed higher … they managed to score but we finished very good, we never gave up, kept pressing and made chances to score … the last ten minutes was so good … we are very happy, we keep going … we have to play game by game and see what happens … the quality of every player is so good and everyone makes her contributions.”
That was the final act of the evening. As contradictory as it may sound, the 4-1 scoreline is the least Berry Ladies FC deserve for their dominance, determination and overall panache, and yet simultaneously harsh on Ridge City FC, who came so close to eking out a draw, and even threatened to find a winner for a while. Berry Ladies FC are 13 up!
