Listen to article

Kumasi, June 12, GNA - Kumasi King Faisal beat Tema Real Sportive 1-0 in their outstanding GT Premier League match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday. Habib Mohammed scored the only goal of the match in the 42nd minute when he connected home a cross from Sumaila Alhassan in a game watched by a sparse crowd.

Sportive controlled the greater part of the game but unfortunately squandered the numerous scoring chances in the early part of the proceedings. Faisal also wasted a chance in the 25th minute when Ben Wilson's powerful drive was parried to corner by Sportive's goalkeeper, Sumaila Abdallah.

Real Sportive substituted Richard Yeboah for Samuel Ocran in the 52nd minute and made a lot of incursions into the goal area of the home side but their attempts to find the equaliser were thwarted by the iron-clad defence of Faisal. Faisal also brought on Osei Kofi for Prince Antwi in the 65th minute while Sportive replaced Stephen Afful with Moses Adjetey in the 68th minute but the changes did not change the pattern of play till the final whistle.
