After seeing us enter our home dressing room and exit with the three points, the former captain and coach trainee, Cynthia Boakye-Yiadom believes the two match days were “two (2) big steps” in Berry Ladies Fc development.
Goals from Janet Osei, Alhassan Fakiha and Elizabeth Boateng saw us take a 3-1 lead despite the boss, coach freeman wasn’t happy with the equalizer but was proud that we managed to see out the remainder of the game to get the victory that takes us 2nd on the League Table.
Cynthia Boakye was thrilled that we managed to record still an unbeaten streak with Sea lions’ ladies as they have still not beaten Berry Ladies FC since the interception of the Women’s Premier league.
Reflecting on the game, she said: “I’m really happy. I really liked the determination and the courage that the team played at home. Though Berry Ladies haven’t lost any games in years with Sea Lions Ladies FC, we didn’t feel complacent, but we played in this incredible home atmosphere. It was a second big step for us to be able to play the way we played here.
“To come home and to restrict them and control the game like we’ve done and to generate the situation that we’ve generated, big credit because it’s very, very difficult to do that with new players trying to find their Rythm with the old players.”
Coach Freeman though not too happy (smiles) with the one goal but was pleased we managed to see out the game to get the win, having been slightly disappointed that we didn’t manage to kill the game off by making it 3-0 to get our Goalkeeper the clean sheet she deserved.
Cynthia believes we’ll actually be stronger for the experience gained and coming through the adversity.
“We missed some chances, especially the one with Comfort Yeboah,” she added. “In the League you aren’t going to create that many, and you have to be ruthless. It’s a shame because we started the second half really well again, scored the goals, and we had big chances to score the fourth one and we didn’t.
“They had a lot of experience to deal with those moments and they really had to suffer from our constant attacks, and we did that really well.
“We are still on a journey, a lot of games to play for, a lot of things can happen, it shows you how difficult it is to win in the Malta Guinness Women’s Premier League, especially at home with a lot of expectations.”
