GLO Premier League: Liberty sink Arsenal

BY: Samuel K. Obour

Liberty Professionals yesterday recovered from a goal down to beat Berekum Arsenal 3-1 at the Carl Reindorf Park, Dansoman.

But for the brilliant saves of Arsenal goalkeeper, Alex Tetteh, the homeside would have recorded a cricket scoreline against the visitors who lost steam  after scoring the first goal.

Liberty went straight into attack right from the blast of the whistle as they launched several attacks on the visitors, but failed to cover their back and against the run of play, they were caught by a counter attack.

Bright Kukubor robbed Liberty of the ball in midfield, ran into the box and spotted Raphael Obeng who displaced Daniel Adjei in post for Liberty Professionals.

Liberty mounted pressure on the visitors and on the 27th minute, Daniel Kordie cancelled Arsenal’s lead through an individual brilliant effort.

 Ebenezer Assifuah increased the tally after he fired home from  close range into the net.

 Liberty maintained the heat on their opponents in the second half and Kennedy Ashia deservedly increased the tally when he scored from a goalmouth melee.
