Accra, Dec. 16, GNA- There will be fireworks at the Gyandu Park as Hasaacas Ladies FC cross swords with Lady Strikers FC in match-day one of the 2021/22 Women’s Premier League (WPL) on Friday, December 17.
Hasaacas Ladies have won six trophies this year and would begin their title defence on a bright note having beaten their nemesis, Ampem Darkoa Ladies to win the maiden First Lady’s Cup last weekend.

These impressive performances from the Sekondi-based team which put Ghana Women’s Football on a pedestal will positively energize the team to soar over Lady Strikers.
Hasaacas Ladies would go into the game with some top players including their unstoppable captain, Janet Egyir, Perpetual Agyekum, Evelyn Badu, Doris Boaduwaa who were stunning at the 2021 Champions League in Africa whilst Lady Strikers would also hope for a comeback against the defending champions, after losing to them continuously last season.
