Sekondi Hasaacas produced a sensational late comeback with two goals in one minute to beat Berekum Chelsea 2-1 at the Sekondi stadium on Sunday in the Ghana Premier League.
Eric Bekoe scored the winner in 83rd minute with a brilliant overhead kick to erupt the stadium into ecstasy.
The goal was Bekoe’s fourth in six matches and his first from open play. The beauty of his goal deserves the flamboyance of the former Ghana League top scorer.
A minute earlier, Saliu Babawo had equalized with a simple tap-in from 8 yards to give the home side a lifeline.
But the hell Hasaacas went through was all down to the brilliance of Sadick Adams in the 65th minute.
The former Black Starlets whizz kid took his time for a long ball to bounce before smashing home with his left foot from the edge of the box.
The experience of Adams was seen in his goal as he called for the pass with his movement and the style of his finish.
Hasaacas had their head coach, Yusif Basigi missing on the touchline due to national team duty with the Black Queens. So Joseph Agyemang Junior, a former captain of the team and now assistant coach had to make the tough decisions as the stand-in head coach.
And Agyemang succeeded in that, following his introduction of youngster Joy Dadzie in the 77th minute. The attacker owns the plaudits for all two goals for his team.
He first used his speed to keep a ball bound for goal kick in play, with a cross on the line which was parried by Tijani Ahmed before Babawo scored the rebound.
Dadzie’s next impact was a skillful back heel pass in the box, which Bekoe controlled with his chest and looped the ball into net while his back went to the ground.
Beyond the late excitement from both teams was a game dominated by raw and dull incursions. But the three goals scored were enough reasons to be proud of the Premier League.
