Earth Angels have won the Orange-sponsored Liberia Football Association (LFA) female championship.
They beat Senior Professionals 2-0 on the final day of the season at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) on Friday.
The game was evenly balanced as Senior Pros appeared to be satisfied with a draw in order to finish as runners until tormentor-in-chief Angeline Kieh broke the deadlock in the 66th minute.
Kieh scored a spectacular overhead kick to the delight of the spectators and received a round of applause when she and Kantie Sayee played some freestyle to the music from the speakers.
Her goal drew comparison to Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible bicycle kick for Real Madrid in a 3-0 win over Juventus in the quarter-final first leg of the 2017/2018 Uefa Champions League in Turin on 3 April 2018.
It was Kieh’s 42nd league goal of the season and she will receive the Doxxbet-Liberia golden shoe plus L$100,000 at the LFA awards night on 23 August.
Second half substitute Kebbeh Lamine sealed the win three minutes from time.
Both teams were tied on 37 points after 15 games with the Angels having won the first leg 3-1 at the ATS on 14 April.
With 12 wins, a draw and two defeats apiece, Angels scored 66 and conceded 13 goals while Senior Pros scored 36 and conceded 13 goals going into the title decider.
The victory means Earth Angels successfully defended their league and cup double and took home L$550,000, a giant-size trophy and medals for their registered players and technical staff.
Blanco FC profited from Senior Pro’s defeat to finish as runners-up following an 11-0 demolition of Naskid in the first game.
Agatha Nimene earned a piece of history for herself by scoring a whopping 10 goals to condemn Naskid to their second 11-0 defeat, having lost to Earth Angels by the same score line at the ATS on 30 June.
Blanco pocketed L$315,000 and medals for their registered players and seven technical staff respectively.
It also means Agatha scored 14 goals in two successive league games following a 4-0 victory over Professional Sisters at the George Weah technical center in Caresburg.
