Liberia: Determine Girls Forced to 1-1 Draw

Blanco FC forced Determine Girls to a nervy 1-1 draw in continuation of the Orange-sponsored Liberia Football Association (LFA) female league recently at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

Paulinho Agbotsu gave Determine Girls an unexpected lead in the 26th minute but Agatha Nimene rescued a point for Blanco from a spot kick five minutes to half time.

It was an unimaginable error when Jessica Kofa, apparently under serious pressure, responded to a call from her teammate to collect the ball from goalkeeper Joetta Wah.

And to the disbelief of the spectators at the ATS, Kofa physically took the ball from Wah with her hands, leaving referee Fidelsco Bestman to signal for a penalty, which was converted by Agatha for her 25 league goals of the season.

In game two, Earth Angels cruised past Naskid 11-0 to move within touching distance of the title.

There were hat-tricks for Rashidatu Kamara and Angeline Kieh, who have now scored 41 league goals.

Kantie Sayee scored a brace and a goal for Sangay Moulton, Jestina Wilson and Jenneba Dumbuya to complete the rout, which was delayed due to rainfall.

At the George Weah technical center in Caresbury, Professional Sisters defeated Island Queens 3-0 with a brace from Monica Nagbe.

And Mercy Jarutta scored a 61 minute goal as Senior Professionals defeated World Girls 1-0 in the last game.

The wins leave Earth Angels and Senior Professionals leveled on 37 points with a game remaining while Blanco are six points adrift with two games.

Ahead of the last round of matches, it is almost certain that Angeline will win the Doxxbet highest goal scorer of the season as Agatha will need at least 16 goals in two games to catch-up.

The winner will receive L$100,000 at the LFA awards night on 23 August at a venue to be announced.

LISCR's Christopher Jackson and Nimba United's Varney Dukuly are leveled on 17 goals in the first division while the second division is far from over.

The winner in the first division will receive L$200,000 while the second division's winner takes home L$150,000.
