UDS women’s team emerged overall best in 2019 GUSA

The women’s football team of the University for Development Studies (UDS) has emerged the overall best in women soccer at the ongoing eighth edition of Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) Mini Games, being held in Cape Coast.

The UDS women’s football team, was billed to play a match against the women’s football team of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) on Sunday, but latter boycotted the match leaving officials to award the former, three maximum points, thus making them emerge overall best in women football at the competition.

It was later established that the UPSA women’s football team boycotted the match, because they feared, they would be humiliated by the UDS’ gallant ladies.

The mere mention of names of players of the UDS women’s football team such as  Mukarama Abdulai, the Black Maidens’ top striker and winner of the golden boot at the recently held FIFA U-17 female world cup competition in Uruguay, and Basira Alhassan (also with the female U-17 National Team) sent shivers down the spines of opponents.

Meanwhile, the UDS men’s football team sustained the momentum with a 5-0 win over the UPSA men’s soccer team.

David Abagna of the Wa All Stars fame, who is player in the UDS men’s football team, scored a hat-trick during the game.

The UDS men’s soccer team, therefore, will lock horns with the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) men’s soccer team in the semi-final match later on Monday, January 07.

This year’s GUSA mini games, being hosted by the University of Cape Coast, kicked off on January 03, and will end on January 11.
