Black Queens beat Mali 8-7 on penalties to win bronze medal at the WAFU Zone B Cup of Nations on Saturday at the Stade Robert-Champroux in Abidjan.

Ghana settled for a goalless draw after 90 minutes and the winner had to be decided via penalty shootout.

Captain Fafali Dumehasi made a crucial last kick save to give the Black Queens and coach Mercy Tagoe-Quarcoo bronze as a consolation.

Both sides were tied at 1-1 and Dumehasi, a police officer, maintained a clean sheet in all five games played at the tournament conceding only during penalty kicks.

Hasaacas Ladies Janet Ama Egyir was adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the match.
