At the stroke of halftime, the homers Adwoa Donkor had a one-one chance to beat Thunder Queens’ goalkeeper, Rose Teye Baah but she missed the chance to double the lead for her side.
From recess, both teams were eager to score and it was Nyame again who was presented with a chance to grab a brace but she was denied by the goal post in the 68th minute.
Twelve minutes to end the game, striker Deborah Opoku could not seize the moment to draw parity for Thunder Queens.
