Joy Bokiri doubled the advantage for her side when she rounded up the Goalkeeper of Ibom Angels Lucky Andy on 40th minutes to end the first half with a two goals lead.

The Uyo Girls had barley settled down for the second half when Bayelsa Queens Goalkeeper Onyinyechi Okeke long kick was lashed on by Anjor Mary to score her second and Bayelsa Queens third on 47th minutes.
