Kumasi, Oct. 14, GNA – Visiting Tema Youth F.C., fought gallantly to record a 1-0 win over King Faisal Babies F.C. in their Glo-Premier League Day Two encounter at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
Faisal had the better part of the exchanges in the first half, playing according to a well-rehearsed tactics but the final delivery remained the problem in most part of the game as they continued to squander many begging chances.
The home team, came close to scoring on two occasions, however, Eric Boakye threw away those chances in the 19th and 21st minutes.
In the second half, Tema Youth threw caution to the wind and attacked in droves, particularly from the flanks, where dare-devil Francis Narh operated effectively with incessant runs upfront.
The home team seemed to have no answers to the strategy and resorted to physical and rough play with skipper Kwadwo Boateng and Ransford Kwakye being the worst offenders.
In one of their advances to break the deadlock, a Tema Youth player was brought down and skipper Jeremiah Arkorful took the kick which was connected home beautifully by substitute Daniel Appiah in the 81st minute to send their supporters into wild jubilation.
Faisal, with defeat staring them in the face rallied back strongly to get the equalizer, however, Joshua Akoto surprisingly shot a ball feebly into the waiting arms of goalkeeper Kofi Mensah after he had meandered his way through the Tema Youth defence in a solo effort.
