Akosombo Krystal Palace successfully participated in a 1-day scouting program at the Madina Astro turf, on Wednesday, April 27, 2022.
Being the only Team to play 2 matches on the day, Krystal Palace played out a 1 all draw with Vision Fc in the 20 minutes each half encounter.
Youngster Bless Benuyena found the back of the net in the 25’, tapping in Selorm Loy Klogo’s stretch of the goalkeeper after twisting and turning over his marker.
Samuel Nanaba had come close on 2 occasions earlier seeing his effort on target parried to corner and 1 blocked.
3 minutes later, a scuffle for the ball at the deep right side, found the foot of Ibrahim Osman, who needed one touch to draw level. The game was ended abruptly as Inter Allies had no opponents and the organizers decided to see the pride of Akwamu lads play again.
The first 5 minutes of the second game saw a lot of ball possession by both sides with little incursions. Esmond Nanor came close to scoring but his shot, connecting from Nanaba was pushed to corner in the 9’. Few minutes later, Frank Adjei Danso was caught offside and his goal was denied in the 11’; He had received a through pass from David Anderson.
In the 12’ however, Frank got his goal this time; he picked a scuffled ball and shot into the roof of the net, after Emmanuel Arthur missed and Amos cut back for him.
Mohammed Kabiru was now all over as he took charge of the midfield and won many fouls for the team.
The second part had the eleven to one boys push for an equalizer but goalkeeper Michael Appiah pulled a great save from a dangerous deflected ball in the 22’.
A sweet passing game got Krystal Palace 2-0 up in the 37’. Emmanuel Arthur needed a tap when Amos Tetteh started the journey, to Bless Benuyena, to Frank Adjei and then the finish by Arthur.
As if that was enough, Frank got his brace finally when he was gifted via a defensive blunder. He made no mistakes finding the right spot and making it 3-0 in the 41’.
The centre referee played 10 more minutes, as he was enjoying himself.
The game was a preparation exercise for Krystal Palace who welcomes Liberty Professional at home for the match day 24 on Sunday, May 1, 2022.
Coach Otis Asante is poised to lift the pride of Akwamu lads from the relegation zone, with 7 matches left to end the 2021/2022 division One season.
