Semifinal matches for this year’s Sanford Women's FA Cup competition will be honored this weekend in Accra and Sunyani respectively.
Defending FA Cup champions - Police Ladies – will duke it out with Immigration Ladies who came in third in the NWL Southern Zone at the Asamoah Gyan Sports Complex in Accra on Saturday. Winners of the NWL Northern Zone – highflying Ampem Darkoa Ladies - will welcome Prison Ladies to the Sunyani Coronation Park on Sunday with hopes of keeping their quest for the FA Cup and NWL title alive.
Ampem Darkoa Ladies progressed to the semifinal stage with a 4-0 rout of Real Upper Ladies whilst their opponents whitewashed lower tier side – Nana Afia Kobi Ampem Ladies by 5 goals to nothing.
The Defending Champions got to this stage with a hard fought lone goal win over Army Ladies. Immigration Ladies, on their part, overcame a tough and resilient Sea Lions who came in second in the NWL Southern Zone.
The respective winners will square off against each other for the Sanford FA Cup.
Tournament sponsors cum health care providers, Sanford World Clinic, have promised a health screening exercise for interested players and fans who show up for the match in Accra.
The screening exercise will include breast examination, blood pressure check and monitoring.
The health screening exercise is being held as part of the activities to commemorate World Breast Cancer Day.
It is the hope of the organizers that free screenings will encourage more females to turn out for the game as well as support the growth and development of women’s soccer.
