Bechem United halt Karela run

Bechem United scored late to beat Karela United 2-1 at the Fosu Gyeabuor Park in a match day six Premier League game.

Karela United goalkeeper Richard Baidoo was forced to make a point blank save on the 18th minute after a Hafiz Konkoni strike.

Bechem United broke the deadlock; a minute into the second half when Stephen Owusu headed the ball into the net from a cross. The visitors quickly responded and 11 minutes later, Diawusie Taylor brought them on level pegging.

Dawusie Taylor came close to scoring his second of the game in the 79th minute, only to be denied by Bechem United goalkeeper Prince Asempa.

Bechem United appealed for a penalty in the 84th minute following calls of a handball in the opponent goal area but referee Maxwell Hanson had none of that as he waved for play to continue.

The game was almost heading to a draw until substitute Listowel Amankona changed the story by scoring the match winner.

Amankona latched onto a rebound and coolly tapped home in the 89th minute to send the home side into wild jubilation. –FA
