On Wednesday afternoon, Sierra Leone opened their 2023 WAFU Zone A U-20 Women’s Cup with a 1-1 draw against neighbours Guinea at the Southern Arena.

The host gots-off to a fast start with a brilliant freekick from skipper Kadoatu Kamara in the opening two minutes but were unable to extend their lead. 

Guinea, on the other hand, after conceding early on in the match, maintained their composure as they rallied an equaliser just before the break.

Guinea’s Fatoumata Dede Diallo scored the leveller from a freekick that was in a promising area and delivered precisely.

Both teams were unable to find the winner as they settled for a 1-1 draw scoreline.

In the second encounter, giant Senegal dominated and walloped their Guinea-Bissau counterparts 4-0 at the same venue on Wednesday.

Hapsatou M Dialo scored a hat-trick, and Walimata Ndiaye with the other goal as they claimed maximum points.

As a result, host Sierra Leone and Guinea with a point apiece. Guinea-Bissua bottom with no point ahead of taking on Shooting Starlets.

The competition continues on Friday, with hosts Sierra Leone tackling Guinea-Bissau and Senegal battling Guinea.
