Reigning WAFU champions, Ghana, kicked off their title defense with a 2-0 victory over their Senegalese counterparts in the ongoing WAFU competition.

Coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo named a strong starting eleven as her outfit searched for their first win after Cote D’Ivoire walloped Togo 5-0 earlier in the day.

The Queens were hard done by wasteful finishing as they camped in their opponent’s half peppering the goal area with many efforts on target.

Evelyn Badu of Hasaacas Ladies fame broke the deadlock with 18 minutes to end proceedings to reward Ghana for their efforts.

Substitute and ex-Maidens skipper Abdulai Mukarama added gloss to the scoreline to bring daylight between the two sides and give her side the three maximum points.

Hasaacas Ladies player, Janet Ama Egyir was rewarded for her superlative performance in the victory over the Teranga Lioness.

The scoreline was only good enough to place Ghana in second spot behind Cote D’Ivoire only on goal difference.
