A LATE Eric Agyemang strike secured the maximum points for Kumasi King Faisal at the expense of Berekum Arsenal in their Glo Premier League match at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi yesterday.
Faisal, who have not enjoyed a smooth run in the league this season, needed the points badly but had to wait until the 79th minute before Agyemang fetched that superb goal.
Operating wide on the right, Agyemang raced onto a pass from the middle and strode into the box to beat excellent keeper Abdul Razak Bobson.
The handful of fans who turned up to watch the game had little to cheer about as the combatants could hardly click.
Faisal's juvenile star, Ebo Andoh, from whom much was expected, persistently attempted to cut a path through the Arsenal area but he was thwarted by the defence line where Philip Boampong was a pillar.
Even though he conceded a goal, Keeper Bobson was in great shape, denying Ibrahim Basit, Abedi Sarfo and Abdul Samad Oppong a goal on countless occasions.
Abedi Sarfo should have scored the second goal in the 89th minute but he headed off target from just six yards unchallenged.
Faisal keeper, Samuel Okyere, also produced a piece of brilliance two minutes into injury time by pushing a powerful header from Prince Gyimah to corner.
