Kings Palace Attacker Samuel Awatsonya found the back of the net in the 2’ to set the tone for their 3rd victory in the ongoing Access Bank Division One league match against Akatsi All Stars on Sunday, November 12, 2023.
The prolific forward who now has 3 goals after 6 matches, connected a nice pull out from Bless Benuyena to send the fans into a frenzy at the ATL Akotex Park in Akosombo.
Kings Place clinched their 3rd straight home win with a 3-2 scoreline against All Stars from Akatsi, who never gave up throughout the game.
Best player for Kings Palace last season, Emmanuel Arthur cushioned the lead for the Pride of Akwamu lads, as he also connected a swift pull out from left back Courage Gbeve in the 30’. 8 minutes later, a miscommunication in the midfield set Faisal Charwetey free, who beautifully placed into the right top corner to pull one back.
Back from the break, some changes kept Kings Palace pushing for another cushion as Akatsi All Stars came into the game, creating some chances. Substitute Frank Adjie Danso made no mistakes, beating the goalkeeper and scoring the 3rd goal after a beautiful pass from substitute Isaac Tetteh Wodjo, when they broke into a counter attack in the 73’.
With 4 minutes additional time, Akatsi All Stars showed what they are capable of, as Faisal Charwetey got his second goal, through another blunder from Kings Palace.
Awatsonya played full throttle and was instrumental not only at front but also helping win balls in the midfield and defense when Akatsi All Stars pilled pressure to pick a point.
Kings Palace has moved a place up to 3rd on the league table with 10 points, 4 b behind leaders, Vision Fc and 3 behind 2nd placed Na God Fc. They will next play Koforidua Semper FI for Match Day 7 at Tema.
