The club didn't fare well in the 2015 Dammalsveskan season which is due to end
this weekend but have been impressive in the biggest women's club competition
in the world.
“It was a game we deserved to win having dominated the Greeks. Thank God we are
through to the next round of the competition,” a delighted Ogonna told News24.
“I'm happy that Sarah Michael scored too, it was the reward of hardwork and
dedication to the game,” the former Pelican Stars winger added.
Michael and Ogonna would have the chance to add to their goal account in the
third round of the competition.
The dangerous pair has been tipped for a deserved recall to the Super Falcons
squad after some years in the wilderness.
