WAFA League: Royaltoms’ Sarata Bello wins Player of the Week award

Royaltoms’ Sarata Bello has won the WAFA Player of the Week award for her impressive performance during the week.

Her team edged Phoenix Queens in a dramatic 2-1 victory in the League’s round 7.

Bello converted a penalty to break the deadlock and give Royaltoms Queens an early lead inside the opening 10 minutes.

Despite dominating the game and creating multiple goalscoring opportunities, the score was brought to level terms in the second half against the run of play.

Kemi Ajala capitalised on a defensive error by Royaltoms Queens and struck the ball with venom into the top corner.

However, it was Sarata Bello who was the late heroine for Royaltoms Queens after poking the ball into the back of the net in the 91st minute to secure all three points for her side.

The goal was Bello’s 7th this campaign and her third of the week as she was also on target in Royaltoms’ 2-2 draw against Young Talents.

As a result, WAFA revealed that the forward has been voted by fans as the Player of the Week.
