KING Faisal staged an astonishing second half performance to clinch a 3-1 victory over Liberty Professionals at the Baba Yara Stadium yesterday.
So swift were Faisal that Liberty were constantly in trouble in the second half.
Twice in the second and sixth minutes, Faisal’s Bashiru Osman came very close to scoring, but wasted the opportunities.
Liberty, who came into the picture with some brilliant moves along the flanks, went up after 31 minutes when defender Emmanuel Osei blasted the ball home after Daniel Yeboah had placed the ball in his path from a free kick.
Disaster struck Liberty in the 56th minute when defender David Addo was sent off for a dangerous tackle.
The numerical advantage propelled Faisal to launch a barrage of attacks, and they levelled up in the 65th minute through Eric Agyemang.
Five minutes later, Daniel Addo headed Faisal into the lead from a Thomas Avorgbedor corner kick.
Liberty crumbled again under the weight of the Faisal pressure as referee Yakubu Nuru awarded the home side a penalty in the 78th minute, which Abraham Basit coveted.
