League leaders Hasaacas Ladies continued their fine form with a solitary win over strugglers Essiam Socrates on the road. Goalkeeper Millicent Mensah's howler gifted the visitors the win. Despite saving some sticky situations for her side, Millicent failed to deal with a harmless ball from the foot of Mary Opoku Ndali. Socrates had an overwhelmingly dominance over their opponent in the second half but could not translate their dominance into goals as the Sekondi ladies cruised to a win.

In Accra, Police Ladies defeated Soccer Intellectuals in a four goal thriller Saturday. Deborah Afriyie broke the deadlock on the 29th minute as Police Ladies scored the first goal but Mary Awuah Boateng scored in the closing seconds of the first half to equalize for the visitors.

Juanita Aguadze scored the second goal for Police Ladies in the 68th minute before Deborah Afriyie put the game beyond Soccer Intellectuals with the match winner and her second of the day.
