Nasarawa Amazon Wins 2019 Aiteo Cup Women’s Title

Nasarawa Amazon of Nasarawa State have been crowned champions of the 2019 Women’s Aiteo Cup after a 5-4 penalty shootout win over Rivers Angels of Port Harcourt at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna on Sunday.

Having won eight of the past nine editions, with only Sunshine Queens of Akure (2015) breaking their streak
, Rivers Angels couldn’t hold their own after regulation time ended 0-0 as Chiwendu Orji missed her spot kick to give Amazon’s Saiki Mary the advantage to win it for the Nasarawa based side which she calmly did.

The win is the first for Nasarawa Amazon since 2005 and will now pocket a prize money of 10 million naira with Rivers Angel going home with 5 million naira.
