The decisive match, held at the SKD Sports Complex, saw Mogbwemo Queens fall short with a 2-1 defeat, extinguishing their hopes of progressing further in the prestigious continental competition.
The stakes were high for Mogbwemo Queens as they faced Determine Girls, with a must-win situation to keep their qualification dreams alive. After an initial goalless draw against AS Mande from Mali in their earlier contest, the pressure was on for the Sierra Leonean champions to secure a victory. However, the encounter against Determine Girls proved to be a tough challenge, leaving Mogbwemo Queens unable to clinch the crucial win.
