Host Edo Queens will renew their rivalry with newly founded Remo Stars girls as the semi-final matches of the ongoing Betsy Obaseki Women’s Football Tournament (BOWFT) will be played today at the Western Boys Mini-Stadium in Ikpoba-Okha and UNIBEN Sports Complex.
When the two clubs met for the first time in the opening match of Group A, Edo Queens laboured to a 2-1 win over the Ikenne based Ladies so the semi-final match offers Remo Stars the opportunity to avenge that defeat.
