Extinguishers on fire at Hockey Championship
December 11, 2010 Accra, Dec. 11, GNA - Extinguishers of Ghana National Fire Service kept alive their hopes of reaching the next stage of the ongoing 22nd Hockey Africa Cup of Club Championship courtesy a 7-0 routing of Egyptian female side, Sharkia on Friday at the National Hockey Stadium, Accra.
The Fire Ladies took their tally to 10 goals in two games and are yet to concede thus keeping them in pole position to wrestle the title from Telecom Orange of Kenya for the first time.
Fresh from the 3-0 thrashing of compatriots, Reformers of the Ghana Prisons Service, the Ghanaians appeared too tough for the Egyptians, who were earlier walloped 0-5 by Telecom Orange of Kenya in the tournament opener last Thursday.
Extinguishers led 3-0 at half time with efforts from Ramatu Abbas in the fifth minute, followed by Juanita Korwu on 25 minutes and Emelia Aggrey effort on the half-hour mark.
Beatrice Darko increased the tally on 37 minutes before Racheal Bamfo scored the fifth goal in the 56th minute.
On the hour-mark, Linda Sasu scored the sixth before putting the icing on the cake nine minutes later with a brace.
In the other games, Reformers beat Nigeria's Heartland 1-0 whilst Orange were held to a 1-1 draw by Yobe Queens also from Nigeria.
