Agona Swedru Sept.27, GNA - Agona Swedru All Blacks played a yeoman's game to beat Cape Coast Venomous Vipers 3-1 in their Division One league match played at Agona Swedru sports stadium on Sunday. All Blacks scored the opener through their midfielder, Dennis Amoah in the eighth minute after he rounded up two defenders in a row before slotting in the ball.

All Blacks continued to dictate the pace of the game and it came as no surprise when they increased the tally to 2-0 through a free kick taken by right half back, Paa Kwesi in the 27th minute.

Vipers resumed the second half in a whirl-wind fashion probing for the equaliser but against the run of play, substitute, Frank Akumpong, exploited a defensive lapse by the visitors in the 50th minute to raise the tally to 3-0 to make victory certain for his side.

In the 69th minute, referee C.K. Kumasenu from Accra showed All Blacks Bismarck Idun the red card for unsporting behaviour to reduce their strength.

Vipers capitalised on the numerical disadvantage to score a consolation goal in the 72nd minute.
