AN impressive and hardworking Zaytuna F/C goalie, Lugard Tetteh, could not keep a clean sheet as he was made to pick two balls from his net by Peter Yakubu in the 14th minute and later by Alhassan Weah.
The Kaladan park was the venue where new entrants Zaytuna F/C made their first clash in the premiership division with Real Tamale United (RTU) in the 2007/2008 Onetouch premiership match.
RTU registered their experience and superiority throughout the match that enabled them to record their first goal of this season’s game in the 14th minute.
As RTU mounted pressure on the defence of Zaytuna, the latter gave in when RTU’s Alhassan Weah converted a corner kick taken by Peter Yakubu.
An intimidated Zaytuna side stepped up their game and in the 90th minute, their resilience paid off as they got a consolation goal through Emmanuel Amoako Agyemang.
• Berekum Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by debutantes Wa All Stars at the Golden City Park yesterday, reports Samuel Duodu.
Arsenal started as the promising side, exerting a lot of pressure on the visitors, but anytime they came close to scoring they failed to utilise the opportunities that came their way.
By the end of the first 45 minutes, Arsenal had not converted any of the numerous descent chances that they created, while the disappointing visitors sat back only to soak the pressure, and often played the game in their own half.
Former Arsenal coach, Emmanuel Quarshie, who is now the coach of Wa All Stars, was carried shoulder high by his players immediately after the final whistle, an indication of their gratitude to him for securing the team its first away point.
