One goal in each half of the game by junior international striker, Yetunde Adeboyejo secured the deserved victory for Coach Edwin tutored team.
Rivers Angels will be joined in the semi final stage by fellow Nigeria Women’s Football League (NWFL) teams, Ibom Angels that eliminated hard-fighting Delta Queens of Asaba by a lone goal in Enugu.
