After we claimed the bronze medal by beating Faith Ladies Football Club on a thrilling Sunday afternoon, Alhassan Fakiha shared her belief with www.berryladiesfcgh.com that the squad is heading in the right direction.
“I think we can be happy with this achievement,” said Alhassan. “If you are a top 3 best women’s team in Ghana now, that’s always quite an achievement to make noise on!
“We deserved it, we put in a good shift in the second half and we were on top of them towards the end of the game.”
We opened the scoring with a superbly taken goal from Christabel Boateng. Alhassan Fakiha’s quietly powerful presence in both boxes when she came in later in the game was essential as we continued to fight for the third place.
“I thought it was really transitional. Faith Ladies FC is always going to be physical and it was my first playing them, we had to accept the fight. We had to go into the tackles.
“In the end, I think the team showed the right energy and character and that’s what we needed that day to grab the 3rd position.”
As we edged nearer and nearer to full-time, a moment of individual brilliance from Alhassan Fakiha, the Right back rescued a point.
“I felt towards the end that the ball just didn’t want to go in anymore and they kept on pressing! But then my colleagues in the defense puts out that – amazing team work especially from Comfort Yeboah and Regina Donkor, the captain. I’m also happy for Christabel Boateng to score her first Berry Ladies goal and it was very important for us on that final game.”
Now, the focus turns to the 2023/2024 Premiere League and also the FA Cup.
“Today was a step in the right direction. I think if we put on the energy we missed on our previous game and if we combine with the good football we displayed on Sunday, then I think it’s going to be a good season ahead.
“We’re going to work hard towards the commencement of the Premiere League, we’re going to make sure that we deserve each win next season in front of our home and away fans.”
We are Berry Ladies FC and we always fight till the last whistle.
