Guehai assists, Elloh and Asanteewa score as Logrono pip Rayo Vallecano



The Ivorians and the Ghanaian were in fantastic form as José Moncayo’s side bounced back to winning ways on Wednesday

Ida Guehai provided the assist as Rebecca Elloh and Grace Asanteewa scored in Logrono’s 2-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano in Wednesday’s Spanish Primera Iberdrola encounter.

Before the encounter, Logrono were smarting from three-straight defeats in all competitions, celebrating only just three victories so far this season.

After a 2-0 defeat at Madrid CFF, Jose Moncayo’s side handed Cote d’Ivoire duo Guehai and Elloh along with Asanteewa, starting places against Vallecano, who are also without a win in three.

Logrono made an unfortunate start to the contest at Estadio Nuevo Municipal Las Gaunas when Pilar Garcia gave Rayo Vallecano a shock lead, with just 21 minutes of action in the encounter.

The hosts, however, started the fightback on a high when the Ivorian internationals Guehai and Elloh combined well for the latter to secure the equaliser a minute after the restart.

Six minutes later, Asantewaa announced her return to Logrono’s fold in style when she netted the second of the match and completing her side’s comeback to earn their third win of the season.

The result takes Logrono to 14th position on the Spanish Primera Iberdrola log, with 13 points from 15 matches this season.

Ghana’s Asanteewa played from the start to the finish to earn her third goal, while Cote d’Ivoire duo of Elloh, who got her first goal and Guehai featured for 78 and 85 minutes respectively.
