Kumasi, Jan. 15, GNA – Visiting Bechem
United fought from behind to register a 2-2 draw game against struggling King
Faisal in a match day four fixture of the Ghana Premier League (GPL) at the
Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi, on Wednesday.
It was Faisal who shot into the lead in the
30th minute courtesy Kwame Peprah, who unleashed a long-range shot to beat
goalie Prince Asempa, after the visitors’ defenders were caught ball watching
in a swift counter-attack.
Prince Adu fetched the equalizer for Bechem
United three minutes later to set the stage for an interesting encounter.
Faisal, languishing at the bottom of the
league having lost all their first three matches, stepped up their game to
score the second goal in the 36th minute.
The homers mounted series of attacks to
increase the tally, but poor shooting upfront was their bane.
Bechem United accepted the challenge and would go all out to equalize with a beautiful second goal from Adu in the 79th
The goal-poacher ghosted past the Faisal
defence in a goal-mouth melee to slot the ball home for a well-deserved point
by the visitors.
