Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Women’s League Lusaka Region entered week 12 over the weekend and produced quiet interesting results as we witnessed a few goals scored.
At Nkoloma Stadium, Red Arrows fought hard to condemn Yasa Queens to their second succesive defeat of the season as a Grace Chanda second half headed goal was the difference between the two sides.
This was a game that could have gone either way as it was an open game and they created chances but were lucklustre in front of goal. The Striking trio of Maiwase, Helen Mubanga and Grace Chanda missed so many chances to bury the game for Arrows but failed to convert.
