Rivers Angels Begin Super Six Quest Against Perennial Rivals, Bayelsa Queens




Rivers Angels Football Club will face off against their long-standing rivals, Bayelsa Queens, in Yenagoa on Saturday, marking the start of their Super Six campaign. Having topped Group B with 27 points in the regular season, The Jewel of Rivers will once again clash with their South-South rivals in the opening match of the Super Six. A win over Bayelsa Queens will set Rivers Angels on a strong path to lifting the NWFL trophy.

Head Coach Whyte Ogbonda expressed confidence in his team’s preparedness, stating, “I’m not intimidated by Bayelsa Queens’ home advantage. All teams in the playoff are capable, but we have a psychological edge over them, having beaten them in Port Harcourt and drawn in Yenagoa during the regular season.”

Coach Ogbonda believes Rivers Angels have a strong chance of winning on Saturday, citing Bayelsa Queens’ fear of playing them. “Bayelsa Queens are scared of facing Rivers Angels, and I’m certain we’ll emerge victorious.”

Ogbonda also acknowledged the significant support from the Rivers State government, which has boosted the team’s morale.

“Before we left Port Harcourt, the Hon. Commissioner for Sports, Barr. Chris Green motivated the girls and outlined the rewards for winning the trophy and bringing it back to Port Harcourt.”

The cracker between both sides will kick off by 2pm at the Samson Siasia Stadium Yenagoa.
