Ambassador FC 2-1 Determine Girls; Defending Champions Fall to League Leader

Decontee Jackson opens the scoring for the home side in the nine minutes when she fired in a clinical finish to put Ambassador FC in the driving seat before Maitta Morris doubled Ambassador’s lead with a sweet left-footed goal in the fifteen minutes giving Ambassador FC a comfortable first-half lead with a 2-0 advantage in the first half.

For all of their pushing and probing though, a quarter of the match went by without Ambassador FC able to create a clear-cut chance, with the Determine Girls FC defense standing strong.
Just after the half-hour mark, Darboe broke their resolve when she make use of a poor clearance from defender ZB and fired in a right-footed finish to pull one back for the visitors.

Defending champions Determine Girls suffer their first league defeat in thirty-five league games.
