Hasaacas Ladies super defender Janet Egyir wins best player award at WAFU Women’s Champions League

Hasaacas Ladies centre-back, Janet Egyir was crowned best player at the just ended WAFU Zone B Women’s Champions League.

The tournament held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast saw the Ghanaian champions lifting the trophy after defeating Nigerian side Rivers Angels FC in the final on Thursday night.

Hasmal Ladies thrashed the Nigerian champions 3-1 at the Champroux Stadium with goals from Veronica Appiah, Perpetual Agyekum and Azuma Bugre ensure the Dooos successfully clinch the ultimate.

Egyir was at her usual best throughout the tournament and played a vital role as Hasmal ladies clinched their third trophy in the 2020-21 football season.

The skipper showed leadership at the back and deservedly was rewarded with the coveted player of the tournament award.

Before the finals, the 27-year-old had won one player of the match award.

The Black Queens defender thus becomes the first captain to lead a side to three titles in a single calendar year.

Hasaacas Ladies also becomes the first Ghanaian side to win a treble after winning the Women’s Premier League, Women’s FA Cup competition and the WAFU Women’s Champions League.

They will now represent Ghana at the maiden edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League in Egypt.
