Tamale based women’s team, Pearlpia ladies have climbed to the top of zone B table, thanks to an away goalless draw with Ampem Darkoa at the Valley View Park in Techiman.
Ghana’s U17 female national team’s safest pair of hands, Cynthia Konlan was at her best form for the northerners as her magnificent saves provided the magic.
Speaking to our reporter, Prince Kwame Tamakloe, the coach of the side, Baba Nuhu Malam said, the draw away from home is as important as a home win.
He said, being on top of the table gives him a great feeling especially playing in the same group with the likes of Northern Ladies, Prisons Ladies and three times national women champions, Ampem Darkoa.
Meanwhile, the coach was quick to confess that, the position poses a huge pressure on him and his team, but he is optimistic that they will finish at an appreciable position by the end of the championship.
Pearlpia Ladies team is blessed to have a number of national team players including Black Queens’ Safia, three times U-17 women’s player Mumuni Fuseina among others.
Speaking on her future, Fuseina said she is aiming at the national U-20 women’s team and also to be the longest serving player at the Senior National Women’s team, the Black Queens of Ghana.
In the other group B match played in Tamale, Black Maidens and Northern Ladies captain, Abdulai Mukarama got her first goal of the competition at the death of the game to secure a point for her side.
A double from Juliet Acheampong looked to have secured maximum points for Prisons Ladies but a goal apiece from Victoria Osei and Mukarama ensured the match ended in a stalemate.
