Saccheri quadrilaterals

Hi there.

I am trying to prove that two Saccheri quadrilaterals are congruent to one
another if their summits and summit angles are equal.

For example,
Saccheri quadrilaterals ABCD, WXYZ with bases AB and WX respectively.
Given summit CD = YZ. Angle at C = D = Y = Z. How do you prove that ABCD is
congruent to WXYZ?

Any hints are welcome?

Thanks in advance.
