Furtherance to Immaculate Queens FC’s pursuit of Enugu State Women’s Aiteo Cup triumph, the club defeated Green Foot FC to schedule a final cracker with FC Joyt Queens.
Immaculate Queens, an offshoot of Queens School football team in Enugu that narrowly lost to FC Joyt Queens of Igbo-Etiti in the 2021 edition, looks to take its pound of flesh in this 2022 edition.
In the semi-final clash between Green Foot FC and Immaculate Queens that ended as a barren draw in fulltime, penalty shootouts decided the knockout fixture which the latter team flawlessly won 3-0 at the Rangers training ground in Enugu.
However, Immaculate Queens processed the semi-final clash with utmost caution ensuring the opponents’ advances were curtailed to avoid unsavoury eventuality.
More so, in a post-match interview, the elated captain of Immaculate Queens, Chika Godwin attributed their victory to hard work which motivated her teammates to boldly slug it out with Green Foot FC.
Godwin explained that the match was tactically approached adding that they would retire home to prepare ahead for the State’s Aiteo Cup final.
“We trained hard for this match and thank God we won as it will give us the morale to face our next opponents squarely,” Godwin said after the match.
“The match was a good one and we are going home to strategise for the match against FC Joyt, and with determination, we will beat them,” she added.
Immaculate Queens, who eye a qualification to represent Enugu State in the national Aiteo Cup competition if they win the State’s FA Cup final, are confident they will do well in the national event should the opportunity presents itself.
