Vera Bema scored late as Army Ladies came from behind to clinch a spot in the Women's FA Cup final with a 2-1 victory over lower tier side Epiphany Warriors at the Madina Astro Turf on Saturday.

Army Ladies were eager for the final spot after missing out to Ampem Darkoa Ladies last season. Both sides created goal scoring chances in the opening half but couldn’t utilise them until Epiphany Warriors found the breakthrough just before the break. The Greater Accra Women's Division One League side took a well-deserved lead after Latifa Mohammed of Army Ladies put the ball into her own net for the opening goal.

After the interval, Army Ladies snatched the equalizer through Adama Alhassan in the 60th minute to keep their title charge alive. But the game travelled into extra time after it ended 1:1 in regulation time.

Sonia Opoku had a chance to put Epiphany Ladies into the lead in the first half of extra time but her effort hit the post. Substitute Vera Bema secured Army Ladies the final slot after scoring the winner in the 112th minute mark. Epiphany Ladies pressed for the equalizer but Army Ladies held on to win 2-1 - sending them into the FA Cup final for the first time.

Army Ladies will face Police Ladies in the final of the 2023/24 FA Cup final.
