Listen to article

Agona Swedru (C/R), July 20, GNA - A classic goal scored by midfielder, Francis Yankey in the 35th minute enabled visiting Cape Coast Venomous Vipers to draw 1-1 with Agona Swedru All Blacks in a friendly football match played at the Swedru Sports Stadium on Sunday. All Blacks who started the match strongly matched Vipers squarely and on several occasions came close to scoring but failed to utilise the gaol scoring chances that came their way.

The homesters continued with their near misses and had to wait until the 25th minute before outside right, George Essuman snatched the opener for his side.

Vipers forced the tide in their favour and put pressure on All Blacks and rightly fetched the much - needed equaliser in the 35th minute through Yankey.

On resumption of the second half, both teams played raised the standard of their play but failed to get the match winner until the final whistle for the end of proceedings.
