REHOBOTH, 16 APR (NAMPA) – Brave Gladiators and Real Zaragoza striker Zenatha Coleman scored a goal in her team’s 2-0 victory against rivals Real Sociedad in the Spanish Primera División Femenina on Sunday.
In a match monitored online, her teammate Armisa Kuč opened the scoring for Zaragoza in the 7th minute before Coleman added a goal for her fifth goal of the season before half-time.
Her teammate Chloe Richards miscontrolled a pass in Sociedad’s area and it bounced off the opposition defender and fell into Coleman’s path, who took the opportunity and scored with her left foot to extend her brilliant start at the club.
The Namibian star now has five goals in ten outings this season for the Spanish club, however, they are rooted on the 15th position with 20 points from 26 games.
The win pulled Zaragoza to 20 points, four clear of bottom-placed Santa Teresa who lost 3-0 against Levante.
Meanwhile Joy Bokiri, another player from Africa, was also on target for her team.
Bokiri was on target for her first goal for Sporting Huelva in a 3-0 win over Albacete on Sunday as the Spanish league resumed following the April international break.
The Nigerian midfielder added to Sporting’s lead in the 83rd minute before Bárbara Santibáñez buried the match in added time.
