Police Ladies on Sunday continued their excellent form with a 3-1 victory over Samaria Ladies in their Week Three fixture of the Normalisation Committee Women’s Special Competition played at the ATTC Park at Kokomlemle.

Faiza Ibrahim scored a brace in the 76th and 89th minutes before Aguadze Juanita added a third goal in the 90th minute to give Police Ladies three straight wins after three matches.

Police now lead the Group D table with nine points followed by Halifax Ladies with six, after they (Halifax) recorded a 2-1 victory over Immigration at the Saint Thomas Aquinas Park yesterday.

Faiza scored Police first goal after converting a penalty after Jabril Salma pulled down an opponent in Samaria goal area which compelled referee Gloria Mortu to award a spot kick.

The enterprising player added a second goal after she had succeeded in dribbling her markers from the wings before Juanita added the third on.

It was Samaria Ladies who got the opener in the 30th minute after Juliet Abanklwa converted the ball from the 18-box after she had been set up by Elizabeth Oppong.

With their coach Anas Seidu constantly on the touchline to issue instructions, an improved Samaria Ladies team got the sizable crowed cheering throughout the game as they proved too tough for their opponents in all the departments of the game.

Samaria Ladies kept pushing for a goal in the 30th minute their efforts yielded result when Juliet Abankwa scored. They held on to the lead till referee Gloria Mortu whistled to end the first half.

From recess, Police Ladies woke up from their slumber as they used experience to capitalise on the petty mistakes of their opponents to snatch the all-important victory.
