The 8th edition of the Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) mini games kicked off in Cape Coast in the Central Region yesterday. The event which is being hosted by the University of Cape Coast has all public universities in Ghana, with the exception of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) competing for laurels in various disciplines, including soccer.
The host institution UCC were beaten 1-0 by the University for Development Studies (UDS) in the women’s soccer played at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium. Mukarama Abdulai, the Black Maidens’ top striker and winner of the Golden Boot at the recently concluded U17 Female World Cup competition held in Uruguay scored the only goal of the match.
It would be recalled that UDS in the men’s soccer division made Ghana proud in the All Africa University Games held in Ethiopia in July 2018, placing 4th ahead of the University of Ghana and 41 other universities in Africa and went on to emerge as soccer champions at the West Africa University Games held in Port Harcourt, Nigeria in November 2018.
