In the end, the team was all smiles with players Nneka Oringamje, Marilyn Elechi, and Chidinma Ukwungwu, rushing over to greet their supporters.
But the fun wasn’t all for players, Coach Gayus was also excited at the prospects ahead of his ladies following their brilliance in the game. "The team we played today is a better team.
