– Relegation-threatened King Faisal Babies were forced to a 1-1 draw game by
visiting Elmina Sharks in their match day six fixture of the 2019/2020 Ghana
Premier League (GPL), at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi, on Saturday.
The two sides
approached the match aggressively in the first half, making it difficult for
ball control and possessive football – a situation which made it hard for
either of the two to create any clear-cut chances.
resumption of the second half, embarked on a swift counter-attack and in the
process burly striker, Kwame Peprah, hit the target for the homers in the 46th
minute, connecting home an Osman Ibrahim in-swinger.
It was a
well-rehearsed goal which seemed to have unsettled the visitors in the initial
stages, however, Sharks fought back to fetch the equalizer in the 70th
minute courtesy Alhaji Mustapha.
Mustapha unleashed a
pile driver to beat Faisal goalie, Moro Yussif, and subsequently, the match was
thrown opened as both sides fought hard to take the lead unsuccessfully till
the match ended.
