Black Queens and Police Ladies shot-stopper Fafali Dumehasi bragged about her side’s invincibility against Accra-based outfit Samaria Ladies after recording yet another win over their group rivals.
Police Ladies went into match day three with a 100 per cent record in the tournament, winning all matches, without conceding a goal. But the wind of invincibility was threatened when Samaria Ladies broke the deadlock on the half hour mark.
A resurgent Police Ladies came out of the tunnel all guns blazing, as they equalized with 19 minutes to end proceedings, before turning the game on its head as Faiza Ibrahim grabbed her brace before Juanita Aguadze added the icing on the cake in stoppage time.
When quizzed about her impression of the game, the safest pair of hands for Police Ladies said,
“When Samaria Ladies scored, I was a little bit distraught but I encouraged my players, that we can do it (overturn the scoreline). Because I am of the strong opinion that, we (Police Ladies) can’t lose.”
Juliet Abankwa’s goal in the 30th minute is the only goal Police Ladies have conceded throughout the special competition, and custodian, Fafali Dumehasi was largely disappointed in losing her clean sheet.
“It is very painful because I was promised (a package, if I maintain a third clean sheet). But the most important thing is that the team won.” she told NB Sports.
An over-confident Dumehasi claims her side will remain a pain in the neck for Samaria Ladies,
“I don’t believe Samaria Ladies will ever defeat us.” she said.
It remains to be seen whether the words of Fafali Dumehasi will smite her in her face in the second round when they face Samaria Ladies or her side will resume normal service against the Accra-based side. Only time will tell.
