The Amazons went into Tuesday’s game as the underdogs and are expected to replicate the pragmatic approach in Friday’s clash with either Delta Queens or Bayelsa Queens in the final.
“We came out with a great purpose and deserve to win. Although we faced a better Rivers Angels team that lost to Delta Queens in the opening day, but yet we were stronger. It’s a dream come true for us to be at the final, even with a game to spare”, Igboamalu told saharareporterssport.com.
“My teammates were fantastic and gave their all. They are indeed an exemplary group on and off the field. I am very happy to be part of this team. I can say we are making progress and we want to take the cup back to Nasarawa.”
