Edo Dynamos female handball club of Benin on Monday defeated Kada Queens of Kaduna 31-16 on Match Day 5 of the ongoing 2021 Prudent Energy Handball Premier League in Abuja.

The win was their fourth in the 10-team female category of the league holding at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium.

The Benin-based team won their first match 27-19 against Confluence Queens, defeated Imo Grasshoppers 23-18 in their second match and the Seasiders Babes 22-19 in their third match.

They led the Kada Queens 13-8 after the game’s first half, but after their opponents rallied to equalise, they bounced back to eventually take the game at 31-16.

For the Kada Queens the defeat marked their fourth loss in the league.

They had lost their opening match 17-24 against Safety Babes, their second match 19-20 against Seasiders Babes and the third match 23-30 against Defenders Babes.

The coach of Kada Queens, Habib Ahmed, said they were playing under stress as they were still expecting their allowances to “kick start” their performance.

The league, which began on Thursday, will end on November 3.
