Seven-star Princesses crush Namibia

Accra, Feb. 19, GNA – The Black Princesses of Gghana turned on the flow to beat visiting Namibia 7-0 in their FIFA –U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifier played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Princesses hoping to make a second World Cup appearance scored four and three in each half respectively thus ensuring their return game in Namibia in a fort night becomes a mere formality.

On a day that  the Namibians failed to make a single attempt at goal, US-based Florence Dadson recorded a hat trick in the annihilation that saw the visitors going beyond the center line only once in the 90 plus minutes.

It was Skipper Priscilla Saahene who sent Ghana ahead on 10 minutes after the petit player raced from the middle and let one fly to beat goalkeeper Agnes Kaucuu who was lost in the posts for Namibia.

The Princesses intensified their search for more goals and soon, it was Elizabeth Addo who cooly converted from the spot after Eddellsisngh Naris scooped Dadson’s header off the line with her hands to give Ghana a penalty advantage.

Naris was giving the matching off orders to gift Ghana a numerical advantage, which, however failed to change the complexion of the game as the visitors put up no challenge but decided to stay put in defence.

Dadson had failed to impose herself on the game during the entire period but when she finally did, the result was two goals within three minutes to send Ghana into recess,with an advantage four goals.

From the break, the striker scored the team’s fifth, which turned to be a hat trick for her after Edem Atovor neatly picked her out from the flanks.  Soon, Coach Robert Sackey pulled out Dadson and Saahene for Mercy Myles and Faustina Ampah.

The substitution further strengthened the attacking prowess of the Princesses and when hardworking Debora Afriyie scored from a solo brilliant effort five minutes after the hour mark, it was obvious the homers were in  for a heavy and convincing win.

Just when it appeared the goals were beginning to dry up, substitute Ampah struck with two minutes to end proceedings to finish the business for the Princesses
