MDR platinum Tournament at Aquinas
Besiktas J.K. Academy sneaked past MDR platinum 2-1 at the Teshie MATS Park on Sunday to bag the third Division One League victory this week. A pair of second half goals – the opener from the spot converted by Emmanuel Boakye and a sensational goal after a solo run.
Right from the start, it was Besiktas who took the first initiative but in spite of a number of crosses into the box, no decisive chances were created, with Besiktas just unable to get that final touch or frustrated by determined home defending. As soon as the second half got under way, it became clear that Besiktas would dominate proceedings in the same fashion. In the 71st minute Besiktas were awarded a penalty after George Attram was brought down in the box. Rauf Salifu converted cold-blooded to grant Lions the lead. Two minutes later Emmanuel Boakye doubled the lead with a solo run right from the halfway line. Young Wise managed to grab a penalty in injury time to make it 1:2, which was how it ended.
