NWPL: Ibom Angels pip Abia Angels in friendly


Ibom Angels continued their preparation for the next Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) with a slim 1-0 victory over Abia Angels.


The friendly took place at the Sabbath Football Pitch in Ubakala on Wednesday afternoon.

Blessing Okon popped up with the solitary goal in the early minutes of the keenly contested battle. She turked the ball home from close range.

There should have been floodgates of goals in the game but the two sides missed easy chances. These wasted opportunities will be a source of worry for the technical crew of the two teams.

Both teams tested new players that have been recruited for the 2019 NWPL campaign.

Ibom Angels and Abia Angels failed to qualify for last season’s Super 4, which was won by Bayelsa Queens.
