Black Queens Seal Qualification To African Women’s Championship

Ghana’s Black Queens sealed qualification to the 10th edition of the African Women’s Championship (AWC) scheduled for Cameroon with a 4-0 thrashing of the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia at the Accra Sports Stadium this afternoon to complete a 6-1 aggregate score line.

The Queen’s opened their goal scoring account as early as the 27th minute when striker Samira Suleman finished off a beautiful cross from the left flank by Portia Boakye with a header that sent the sparse crowd applauding her effort.

Six minutes later Boakye got her name on the score sheet with a low grounder that beat goalkeeper Ella Kaabachi in post for the Carthage Eagles.

In a half that saw the visitors rarely threatening the Ghanaian goal area, Suleman had a gifted pass from goalkeeper Kaabachi on the stroke of half-time but she shot wide of target, much to the disbelief of the fans.

Back from recess the Queen’s piled up pressure on the Tunisians and after series of near misses and sporadic shoot off target striker Prinscilla Adubea made it 3-0 after a solo effort saw her going through a forest of Tunisians legs before slotting pass on-rushing goalie in the 75th minute.

Seven minutes to end proceedings, Suleman got her brace on the day and Ghana’s fourth with a superb strike to cup an afternoon of fine soccer artistry for the Black Queens.

The Queen’s by the victory have thus qualified for this year’s AWC finals scheduled for Cameroon between November 19 to December 3.
