Berry Ladies FC sweated for it, but ultimately secured the 3 points at the Malta Guinness Women’s Premier League as Victoria Salifu unique strike sealed it all in the dyeing minutes.
It is almost customary now for Berry Ladies FC to concede a goal early or late, and it was much the same as we kicked off the League campaign.
The chances kept coming, with Berries doing what they do best, to push till a clinical finish of which Comfort Cobinnah did to break the deadlock at the start of the First Half.
There were no changes at half-time, and Coach Freeman’s side with a mistake from the defenders saw Soccer Intellectuals side equalizing the goal after few minutes of breaking the dead lock.
It certainly seemed as though there had been choice words from the manager in the dressing room, with a number of players – Janet Osei Korkor and Jacqueline Amponsah included – stepping up their performance levels.
With the tie still in the balance in the 2nd half with 25 minutes left of normal time Janet Osei Korkor caused a penalty which Comfort Yeboah who stepped forward to take it, gave Berry Ladies a 2-1 lead. Coach Freeman saw fit to send on both Victoria Salifu and Hannah Buabeng, arguably the two most popular players inside Madina Astroturf
Berries still had defending to do, but did so well as Deborah Annoh, Regina Donkor and Cynthia Boakye Yiadom all made timely challenges to keep the lead.
Deborah Annoh who has being in a remarkable form was named Nasco Player of the match (MVP)
