Ghana FC wins Philam Life 7s Season 3 crown
Ghana F.C. completed its mission with a 3-1 over the Super Eagles and ruled the Philam Life 7s Football League held over the weekend at the McKinley Hill Stadium in Taguig City.
The Ayi Bimbo-mentored squad shocked the packed venue by controlling possession and scoring two quick goals in the first half courtesy of forwards Emmanuel Mbata and Daniel Ashley.
It left the Super Eagles flat and unable to dictate the pace throughout the match as the ousted champions played catch-up for the entire duration.
In the second half, Super Eagles tried to mount a comeback with Emmanuel Sylvernus converting a goal. However, the defense and crisp passing of Ghana F.C. were too much to handle for them, and striker Junior Sam chipped in another goal to secure the victory.
“When we scored 2-0 in the first half, Super Eagles’ confidence was really shut down and even ifthey scored a goal in the second half, we were not worried because I know we can score another goal to seal the win. I knew already that we will get another goal,” said Bimbo.
“It was really hard for us to keep it at a clean sheet because of their pressing but I was glad that after they scored their lone goal, my teammates tried their best to score another one to kill their momentum,” added Steve Waledji.
In the women’s division, it was Outkast F.C. prevailing over the tough Stallion-Hiraya side, coming from behind to bag home the inaugural Philam Life 7s Women’s Football League title via a 2-1 win.
