NWFL Playoff: Dream Stars Makes Invincible Angels Vincible, Osun Babes Survive

It was a tensed atmosphere inside the package B of the Moshood Abiola stadium, Abuja with survival at stake for four teams.

The 2018/2019 season of the Nigeria Women's Football League is rounding-up as Osun Babes,Invisible Angels, Dream Stars Ladies and Kaduna Queens fights to avoid the drop.
Two matches was lined-up by the League body for the neutral Goal project pitch in Abuja.

Osun Babes first of all fought tooth and nail with Kaduna Queens in an early kickoff of the double dosage on offer for the fans of female soccer.

Both teams struggled for meaningful impact until the second 45 minutes when the Osogbo Based were awarded a spotkick when Winifred Eyebhoria was brought down inside the 18 yard box. Confidence Iloduba Sarah stepped and scored in the 50th minute but Msughter Anita responded for the Crocodile Ladies profiting from a defensive error by the Osun Babes defence.

It ended 1-1 and it was straight to penalty shoot-out as there must be victors and villains.

Osun Babes,Goalkeeper Chinaza Obia was the heroine as she saved the last penalty kick while Okogbe Victoria couldn't cover her team in glory as she blasted her kick over the goal for a 4-3 win for the South Westerners.

It was the turn of Invisible Angels of Benue and Dream Stars Ladies in the second match of the day.

Dream Stars Ladies scored after a nightmare start through Judith Nwaogu glancing from a corner kick by Anuoluwapo Salisu in the 21st minute against the run of play.

Invisible Angels grabbed their well-deserved equaliser with six regulation minutes left on the clock via Kafayat Bashiru.

Once again, it was the lottery of spot-kicks, and the pride of Lagos carried the day with a clinical 4-2 victory.
