2022 Caf WCL: Bayelsa Queens blank Ampem Darkoa 3-0 to qualify as Wafu-B champions

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.

Qualified teams:

  • Hosts: AS FAR (Morocco)
  • Defending Champions: Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa)
  • Cosafa: Green Buffaloes (Zambia)
  • Unaf: Wadi Degla (Egypt)
  • Wafu Zone-A: Determine GFC (Liberia)
