Rivers Angels win 2013 Federation Cup

16 September 2013, 10:59

Abuja - The Rivers Angels FC of Port Harcourt on Sunday emerged winners of the 2013 Women's Federation Cup by beating Nasarawa Amazon FC of Lafia 3-0.

The match, played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, was Angels’ fourth Federation Cup title win in the club's history.

Angels took the lead through Gloria Ofoegbu after sustained pressure paid-off in the 42nd minute.

The Port Harcourt women doubled the lead in the 56th minute after a beautiful inter-play in Amazon's 18-yard box was scored by Elizabeth Addo.

Angels made it 3-0 in the 80th minute when Ofoegbu converted her second goal of the encounter.

An excited Edwin Okon, the Head Coach of Angels, told reporters that his team deserved the victory because Angels dominated the encounter.

"The girls have made me proud; they played to instructions, kept up the pressure until the goals began to come in.

"We will keep giving our best to ensure that the team continues to grow from strength to strength," he said.

The Coach of Amazon, Obi Ogbala, described his team's defeat as unfortunate.

Ogbala said that his team had worked hard to get to the final.

He, however, said the  team would go back to the drawing board to sort out areas where it needed to improve upon.
