Rivers Angels on Sunday afternoon retained their Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) Premiership crown after another dazzling 4-0 win over Sunshine Queens of Akure.
Playing inside the main bowl of the Dipo Dina Stadium, the Jewel of Rivers produced a scintillating performance to leave no one in doubt as to their deserving nature of the crown.
Edwin Okon’s ladies needed a win of any margin to render the other game going on simultaneously (between Delta Queens and FC Robo) academical and they truly made hay while the sun shone.
Oghebrume Ikehkua gave the New Vision Girls a dream start when she planted home a brilliant header after a superb cross from the equally impressive Vivian Ikechukwu with just two minutes into the game.
Sunshine Queens then mounted a spirited effort to come back into the game but were denied on a couple of occasions by Angels’ goalkeeper and captain Ibubeleye Whyte.
With just seconds left in the first half, Ikechukwu got an insurance goal for Angels when she lashed home a rebound after some good work by Paulinus Ifeoma on the right.
Angels made it three in the 66th after a lovely solo effort by Alice Ogebe before Maryann Ezenagu’s diving header to Paulinus’ 81st-minute free-kick wrapped up the win in style for Angels.
