Halifax Ladies free-scoring striker Ernestina Tetteh says she is looking forward to topping the goal scorers chat at the end of the Normalisation Committee Women’s Special Competition.

The sensational striker has bagged six goals in six games and won two Most Valuable Player awards so far.

Ernestina scored a hat-trick in their Week Four fixture against Police Ladies played at the Tema Community 8 Park.

Her outstanding performance has helped her team pick one of the Group D slots to the quarter-finals of the competition after they finished second with 13 points.

The young striker is also hoping that her performance will catch the attention of the technical handlers of the Black Queens in order to receive a call-up to the Queens camp for future tournaments.

“I want to be the goal queen and secondly to get a call-up into the senior national female team, Black Queens,” she stated emphatically.

Touching on their chances in the last eight, she said her side was ready to massacre any team that crosses their path as they seek to finish as the overall champions.

 “We are ready for any team that will come our way. Personally, I am ready to play against either Sea Lions or Hasaacas Ladies,” she said.

The Tema-based club on Wednesday rounded up their campaign in the group stages with a 1-0 win over Immigration Ladies to amass 13 points behind Police Ladies, who garnered 15 points.
