The second stanza of the 2022/2023 season of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) returned after a 3-week midseason break on Wednesday, with Robo Queens and Nasarawa Amazons recording crucial away wins.
In Aba, a goal in either half from Dominance Odubanjo and Josephine Mattias put Nasarawa Amazons in the driving seat for all three points against Abia Angels. Although Nmesoma Ibe pulled one back for the hosts to half the deficit late in the game, the group B leaders held on to claim a vital away victory.
In the same vein, Robo Queens of Lagos enjoyed a 2-1 win which saw them complete a league double over Adamawa Queens on Wednesday.
The Robo Queens rocked up to Yola confident of a win having previously defeated their opponents 3-0 in the first part of the season. An Esther Onyenezide brace was enough to do the damage despite a goal from Nneka Joy for the Adamawa Queens.

The break was good for Osun Babes who ended a five-game losing streak in Osogbo with a 2-0 victory over Heartland Queens.
Goals in each half by Rebecca Omodele and Bolaji Olamide ensured that the Osogbo-based team began the second half of the league on a winning note.
Supr 6 Defending champions, Bayelsa Queens held group A leaders, Delta Queens to a 1-1 draw while Rivers Angels continued a disappointing season with another draw, making it four draws and just two wins in seven games.
The Port-Harcourt based team went ahead through Aguadze Juanita from a spot kick in the 36th minute. They were however pegged back and held to a draw courtesy of a late strike by Azeezat Obadun, to help Royal Queens come away with an important away point.
