Super Falcons pip Sia One soccer academy

26 September 2014, 11:05Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Super Falcons preparations for the Africa Women Championship (AWC) gathered momentum Thursday evening when they pipped Sia One soccer Academy by a lone goal at the FIFA Goal project pitch of the Abuja National stadium.

The Coach Edwin Okon tutored side started the game with high intensity putting their male counterparts under severe pressure but could not let the pressure count as they lost some chances.

However, their persistence paid off in the 20th minute when Ngozi Ebere converted a free kick from the edge of the 18 yard box after a goal bound Asisat Oshoala was felled.

Efforts made by both teams to score was not fruitful as play was limited to the midfield until the interval.

The second half saw the Sia One soccer Academy boys dictate the pace but the Super Falcons defence stood their ground repelling pressure.

Sia One soccer Academy coach Hassan Abdallah commended Falcons for being able to beat his boys, stressing that the girls with little improvement will do the country proud.

"I have a feeling that these girls will get the job done in Namibia. The coaches must work on their speed, stamina and shooting to excel at AWC," stated the former Kano Pillars FC ace.
