Bayelsa Queens beat Rivers Angels, NWFL Super Six

Bayelsa Queens dominated ball possession and mounted pressure on the Rivers Angels’ backline.

The pressure eventually paid off when a Bayelsa Queens player was brought down by a Rivers Angels defender for a penalty kick perfectly converted by Edet.

A fifth minute penalty kick converted by Glory Edet gave reigning champions Bayelsa Queens of Yenagoa victory over Rivers in the final group A game of the ongoing NWFL Super Six in Asaba on Friday.

The game characterised by rough tackles and described by many spectators in the stadium as a final before the final, started on a high note.

On resumption of the second half, both sides made several incursions into each other’s goal area, but wasted the chances to score.

However, the game’s ugly moment came in the final minute of the added four minutes when centre referee Nurudeen Abubakar signalled the end of the game.
