Listen to article

Accra, Sept. 27, GNA - Two classic goals scored by James Zoglo of Mamprobi Saint Mirren deflated the hopes of Tema Seven United to maintain the first spot of the Division One league encounter played at the Indafa Park on Saturday.

The match ended 2-1 in favour of Saint Mirren at the end of full time.

Saint Mirren showed an early signal of carrying the day when they forced the visitors to play defensively for almost 15 minutes from the start of the game who managed to contain the pressure.

Striker James Zoglo of Mirren fired a shot in the 30th minute to open the scores for his side and ensure they challenged for the first spot of the league table.

Zoglo again capitalised on a defensive blunder to slot in the second goal in the 43rd minute to bring the first half scores to 2-0 in favour of Mirren.

The Tema boys resumed the second session with determination and put on a sustained pressure on Mirren that earned them four corner kicks but they failed to utilise the chances.

Adam Turak of the Tema team however managed to convert a penalty kick in the 72nd minute to bring the final score to 2-1.

At the same venue, GHATEL Ladies put up an impressive performance to beat Kwashieman Faith Ladies 2-1 in their Greater Accra Women's Soccer league match.

Dinah Ankomah scored the two goals for Ghatel Ladies with Margaret Owusu pulling one back for Faith Ladies.
