Reuben scored a brace as Bayelsa Queens battled to defeat hard-fighting neighbours Edo Queens at the Samson Siasia Stadium, and netted her third goal in February as they got an important away win against Abia Angels in Umuahia.

Okon, meanwhile had a 100% record in the month of February, winning all his three games, which included two victories away from home.
