‘We can’t defend the Super 4 title’

Rivers Angels technical adviser Edwin Okon doesn't think his side will be able to defend their league crown in the Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) Super 4 competition.

This followed the Jewel of Rivers' successive defeats at the annual competition at the hands of Delta Queens and Nasarawa Amazons.

The Garden City side lost 1-2 to the Lafia landlords in Tuesday’s NWPL Super 4 matchday 2 clash at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.

Nasarawa Amazons went two goals up in the first half courtesy of Adejoke Ijalonibu and an own goal by Rivers Angels defender Mabel Effiom, while substitute Mercy Amanze scored a consolation goal for the Port Harcourt side.

Okon critised the match officials after the match and bemoaned another loss.

“It’s really bad losing two matches in a row. I’m always hesitant to talk about officiating but we all watched the match and could use our tongues to count our teeth,” said the former Super Falcons coach to supersport.com.

The second match of the day saw Delta Queens share the spoils 1-1 with neighbours Bayelsa Queens.

Adebisi Saheed scored for the Asaba outfit in the 20th minute while Tessy Biawho levelled for the Yenagoa side.

Rivers Angels are at the bottom of the four-team NWPL log without a point.

Nasarawa Amazons are at the summit on six points while Delta Queens are second on four points and Bayelsa Queens on one point after matchday 2 clashes.

Matches will resume on Thursday.
