Ampem Darkoa Ladies had several opportunities to increase their lead in the first half but failed to.
Back from the break, Mary Amponsah grabbed her third goal of the game in the 55th minute to give her side a 3-1 lead, before she added her fourth of the day in the 65th minute.
Amis Du Monde managed to get one goal back in the 84th minute to make it 4-2.
