Liberia brush aside Sierra Leone in U20 WAFU tourney in Senegal

Liberia brush aside Sierra Leone in U20 WAFU tourney in Senegal 

Liberia’s U20 team proved too strong for their Sierra Leonean counterparts, securing a spot in the semifinals of the WAFU A U-20 Women’s Tournament with a decisive 7-0 victory. 

It was the Liberian’s second win from Group B following their opening 2-0 w=victory over Guinea in the tournament opener. 

Edwardline Jackson’s hat trick – along with goals from Louise Brown, Jessica Quachie, and Anita Tarpehcontributed to the win.

Edwardline Jackson was awarded Woman of the Match for outstanding performance in the 7-0 victory over Sierra Leone’s U-20 team. 

Sierra Leone suffered a setback when Fatmata Turay was sent off with a red card in the 41st minute, leaving them with one player down for the rest of the match.

Despite their best efforts, playing with a player down proved a significant disadvantage as they couldn’t cope with Liberia’s attacking prowess.

Following their 2-0 victory against Mauritania in their opening match, Liberia’s U20 team will face Guinea in their final group B match and must win to avoid elimination.
