Looking to build on their impressive victory over Moje Queens FC yesterday, Ekiti Queens FC began this encounter on the front foot.
Adelabu Pascaline tested Williams Jennifer (Pelican goalkeeper) from a close range before putting her side ahead in the first 25 minutes of the mouthwatering encounter.
The Ekiti-born striker was put through by brilliant assist from Alatise Bashirat and Pascaline showed brilliant composure inside the box to bury the ball into the back of the net.
Pascaline continued to threaten the former Premier league team, making her way to the post on several occasions. Meanwhile, Chisom Chima came close to adding a second before the break, as her shot was tipped over the bar.
With an hour gone, Chisom Chima saw her close-range shot diverted wide after a smart pull-back from Pelican’s goalkeeper, keeping the contest within the Pelican Stars’ grasp. Sensing just that, the former Premier league team brought in 3 fresh legs, yet Ekiti Queens FC almost instantly doubled their advantage as Olaleye Odunayo fired through a sea of bodies.
Ekiti Queens FC had Adeleke Adedoyin to thank for denying what looked like a certain goal, getting her body in the way of Pelican striker would-be tap-in. Her crucial saves helped see out the game with 1-0 victory over the Calabar based team and continue Ekiti Queens FC winning streak in the Championship.
The BAORESS Babes have now recored 6 points in 2 matches with 3 more games to go.
