RIVERS Angels of Port Harcourt are still basking in the euphoria of their triumph in the Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL).
The club chief coach, Edwin Okon, was in high spirits after The Garden City side pipped Bayelsa Queens by the odd goal in the final game of the NWPL Super Six contest decided at Umuahia Township Stadium in Abia State capital last week.

Much to the delight of the former Super Falcons coach, national team left-wing-back, Osinachi Ohale’s first-half goal was enough to hand her side their unprecedented sixth league title.
Okon said it is just the beginning of heroics from Rivers Angels, as he insists his side are in no mood to let go of the league title.

“Of course, we are not tired to be champions; we are planning to win the title each year so no team will ever consider equaling our records.
