Ghana will not have a representation at the second edition of the Caf Women’s Champions League following the failure of Ampem Darkoa Ladies to win the Wafu Zone-B qualifying tournament held in Cote d’Ivoire.
The Ghanaian league champions suffered a 3-0 defeat to Nigerian side Bayelsa Queens in the grand finale held at the 20,000-capacity Stade de Yamoussoukro Saturday evening.
The Nigerians got all their goals in the first half. Miracle Joseph converted a penalty in the 11th minute with Flourish Sabastine doubling the lead 8 minutes later. Chinyere Igbomalu added the third goal 3 minutes from the break.
No goal was produced in the second half.
Bayelsa Queens thus emerge Wafu Zone-B champions and as well take the only slot available for the 2022 Caf Women’s Champions League.
Africa Sport brushed aside Espoir FC 4-0 in the third place match earlier on.
The 2022 Caf Women’s Champions League will be hosted by Morocco from October 30 to November 13, 2022.
Sekondi Hasacaas Ladies conquered Wafu Zone-B and represented Ghana in the maiden edition of the WCL tournament last year. They went all the way to the final before losing the trophy to South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns.
