Published on: 20 August 2023

Nigeria Women's Football League teams, Bayelsa Queens and Edo Queens engaged in a novelty match as they keep their on the resumption of the league on Friday, reports.

There was nothing to choose between the two sides after regulation time as it ended one-all at the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa.

A pulsating encounter saw the two sides leave no stone unturned to outwit the other, but it was all to no avail as the first 45 minute ended goalless.

However, it took just 13 minutes into the second half for the Moses Aduku side to take the lead through a pressure-induced own goal by Bayelsa Queens defender Miracle Joseph.

The Prosperity Girls responded with the equalizer less than ten minutes later after striker Chinyere Ugbamani was brought down in the 28 yard box.

The two teams continue to prepare as they await the start of the 2023/2024 season.
