Youth Report: Still Believe start season with draw
Still Believe FC begun their campaign in the Greater Accra Division Two League with a hard-fought goalless draw with Mobile Phone People on Saturday.
The youth team of Dreams FC were unlucky not to have come away with maximum points due to some resolute defending from the hosts at the Madina Cluster of Schools Park.
Youngster Adam Faahd emerged the star of the game with his constant attack on the Mobile Phone People defence.
The hosts had to resort to persistent fouling to thwart the efforts of the budding star.
Still Believe should have taken the lead under just five minutes but for a last-ditch heroic defending to deny striker Philemon Baffour.
Coach Nii Adu Sackey’s team continued piling the pressure with the likes of Ruben Nunoo, Victor Oduro and James Asamoah all coming close.
Mobile Phone People however recovered from their wobbly start as they mounted a surge of attacks in the second half in search of the elusive opener.
Francis Mensah and Musah Ali however stood firm in the center of the Still Believe defence.
Goalkeeper Tahiru Alhassan then pulled off two spectacular saves in quick successions to deny the hosts ten minutes from time.
Substitute Malvin Ampomah should have however won the game for Still Believe following a mazy run from Faahd.
The ball fell fortuitously to Ampomah at the far post but his connection was nit strong enough to win the game for Still Believe in virtually the last piece of action of the game.
Still Believe will next play Madina Miracle at their new home grounds at the University of Ghana Farms Park on Saturday.
