Confluence Queens and Edo Queens joined Osun Babes and FC Robo Queens in the semi final of the 2021 Flying Officers Cup after the conclusion of quarter final games on Wednesday.
At the third quarter finals game played on Wednesday at the Area 10 Sports Complex, Abuja, Confluence Queens edged-out Nasarawa Amazons 1-0 to book a place in the semi final.
The Lokoja based side started the game having the lion share of possession.
Mercy Omokwo scored the lone goal for Confluence Queens in the 27th minute with a long range shot from outside the box to beat Chukwu Uchenna in goal for Nasarawa Amazons.
Nasarawa Amazons came out in the second goal half pilling pressures on Confluence Queens defence but Alexander Florence marshalled her back line well to prevent the Lokoja based side from conceding any goal.
In the 62nd minute, Kalu Chinyere’s effort for Nasarawa Amazons from long range hit the woodwork.
Six minutes from full time, Confluence Queens thought they had doubled their lead after a header from Joy Michael seemed to have resulted into a goal but referee Vivian Osimani rescinded her decision after consultation from assistant Referee Rasheedat Abdulganiyu.
Edo Queens without Coach Wemimo Mathew who is with Super Falcons for African Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) Qualifiers defeated Sunshine Queens 1-0 in the last quarter final game.
As early as the seventh minute, Edo Queens got the breakthrough as Adaobi Okah converted with a fantastic strike from an acute angle.
In the second half, Sunshine Queens pushed for the equaliser but Edo Queens controlled the game well to ward off Sunshine Queens threats and qualify for the semi final.
