Tura Magic Ladies on Saturday thrashed V-Power Angels 8-0 to reach the final of the NFA Women Super Cup, while Galz & Goalz goalless draw against defending champions Khomas Nampol ensured they joined Magic Ladies in the final, slated for this coming Saturday, 27 February.
While Magic Ladies cruised smoothly into the Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women Super Cup final with an emphatic win 8-0 over V-Power Angels, however, for Galz & Goalz, their journey to the final had to rely on a 1-0 aggregate advantage from their first leg 1-0 win against the reigning champions.
Saturday’s semifinal clash at the NFA Technical Centre in Katutura saw Lovisa Mulunga riding the crest of the waves for the Magicians as she scored five goals to propel Magic Ladies to the final of the women’s competition. Magic Ladies captain Anna Shikusho scored a brace and Ivone Kooper was also on target to complete Magic’s resounding 8-0 victory.
Going into Saturday’s semifinal with upper hand thanks to a 1-0 win from the first leg clash the previous week, Galz & Goalz scrapped a goalless draw against Nampol, which proved enough to earn them a spot in the final, where they face magic Ladies this coming Saturday.
In a post-match interview with the media, Mulunga – who was voted player of the match said it, was hard work and dedication from both the players and technical team that helped them achieve the massive victory.
“It was an outstanding performance from all the players today, we came out and showed up for this game. We have been training hard this whole week and thanks to the technical team for pushing us above the limit. We also showed that we wanted to be in the final, that’s why we came out strong,” she said.
Meanwhile, Tura Magic Ladies head coach Shama Gure seconded his player’s sentiments, saying the team had prepared well for the match and he went on to credit Mulunga’s heroics and how her experience came in handy for the team on the day.
“Just like I said earlier in my interview, we put in a lot of work and it all paid off. We are in the final and it’s now time to go back to the drawing board. Having a player such as Lovisa in our team was another advantage as we knew using her experience would help us in this game and that’s what happened,” he said.
On this part, Galz & Goals coach Ronnie Hoxobeb told Nampa that defeating the cup’s 2017 champions and then reaching the final was a great achievement for his team.
“It was not an easy game, it was a war for us but our defence discipline and our goalkeeper’s exceptional performance took us to the final and we are now set to meet the league’s champions; we will do our work at training and rise a bit higher so we can go for the trophy,” he said.
