Elizabeth Zirike, who was an otherwise peripheral figure, brought Edo Queens level in the 20th minute with a carbon-copy of her usual recipe she cut inside a couple of challengers and planted an unstoppable 25 yards screamer beyond Elizabeth Johnson.

Bayelsa Queens were left stunned as first half strikes from Taiwo Lawal and Monday Gift saw FC Robo Queens win 2-0.
