Halifax Ladies and Black Maidens shot-stopper Grace Banwaa waxed spiritual pertaining to their chances of making it to the next phase of the Normalization Committee Women Special Competition.
Banwaa, a member of the Black Maidens team that finished in the quarterfinals of the last U-17 World Cup held in Uruguay bemoaned her side’s lack of productivity in front of goal despite creating a lot of chances in their previous encounter.
In spite of this setback, the young goalie is optimistic the bad result against Police Ladies could serve as a launch pad to ignite their campaign against Samaria Ladies.
Quizzed on the chances of Halifax qualifying to the next stage of the ongoing competition, Banwaa said:
“My pastor says, with God all things are possible. Even if we lost our first game (against Police Ladies). I trust mysef and teammates that we will go far in the tournament.”
With such strong and unwavering faith in doing the impossible, Grace Banwaa and her colleagues will play against match day one victors, Samaria Ladies on Wednesday.
A win in midweek will put Halifax Ladies back into qualification positions, as they aspire to travel far in the competition.
