Prince Opoku Agyemang grabs late winner in crucial win over AshGold

Star striker Prince Opoku Agyemang scored a last-gasp penalty for Medeama in their hard-fought 1-0 win over Ashantigold at home on Sunday.

Opoku Opoku Agyemang light up the crowd at the Akoon Park after he scored from the spot-kick seven minutes into injury time to hand the side’s recent poor run.

Owusu Banahene handled the ball in the 18-yard box after a scramble.

Referee Jacob Aduntera had no hesitation in awarding the spot kick.

Prince Opoku Agyemang, who has now scored seven goals in nine matches, stepped up to beat goalkeeper Kofi Mensah.

The visitors put you a solid performance but have been let down after the late penalty.

Medeama coach Yaw Preko altered his formation, opting for the 3-4-2-1.

Zana Coulibaly struggled on the right wing while Fatawu Sulemana was a delight to watch at the Akoon park.

Ashantigold coach Thomas Duah made few changes to his squad with Kwadwo Amoako and Jacob Appau starting from the bench.

Frank Boateng was hardly tested but Kofi Mensah was the busier of the two goalkeepers.

Mensah adopted uncomfortable delayed tactics but got punished at the death.

Medeama jump to third on the table with 43 points from 26 matches.
