Olympics stun King Faisal 2-0
Ho, Jan. 20, GNA - Accra Great Olympics on Saturday put up a
splendid performance to beat Kumasi based King Faisal two
goals to nil in their OneTouch Premier League clash at the
Ho Sports Stadium.
Olympics, losing its last three matches in succession put
everything into the match right from the blast of the
whistle and won a penalty in the 35th minute, which Edward
Sosu converted for the opener.
Cheered on by a vociferous borborbor group of supporters,
Olympics held on to the 1-0 and determined the pace of the
game for the rest of the first half.
King Faisal warmed up into the game after recess winning all
50-50 balls, but failed to equalize two minutes into the
second half in a counter attack that found Faisal attackers
in very clear scoring positions.
A minute later Olympics' Mohammed Tanko nearly increased the
tally to two but missed the post narrowly after dribbling
through Faisal's defence and had only Osei Boateng in goal
for King Faisal to beat.
In the 65th minute as tension increases on the field of play
and anxiety was intensified on the VIP stand with officials
of the two teams arguing about some of the referees'
decisions, Olympic's Emmanuel Clottey capitalized on a lapse
in concentration in Faisal's defence and fired a swift one
past Osei Boateng making it two for his team.
Michael Quaye of Olympics was adjudged the man of the match.
