Aduana Stars FC on Sunday, succumbed to a 3-1 defeat on penalties to King Faisal FC in the 2022-23 MTN FA Cup quarterfinal clash.

After a 2-2 stalemate at the Dr. Kwame Kyei Sports complex in Abrankese, extra time could not see the winner as game proceeded to penalty shootouts. Unfortunately, Aduana Stars FC bowed out of the competition with a 3-1 lost.

In as much as, the Fire Boys were optimistic of clinching both the MTN FA Cup and BetPawa Premier League, they were unable to inspire themselves with better performance.

Head Coach Samuel Paa Kwasi Fabin has criticised the performance of the center referee, insisting their poor performance led to Aduana Stars exit from the FA Cup competition.

The Ghanaian gaffer believes the poor output of the match officials resulted Aduana Stars eviction from the competition at the quarter-final stage by King Faisal.
“It is true, we missed some chances in the game. I’ve never complained about refereeing but today I’ll do that because the performance of the match officials was very bad,” Fabian told StarTimes TV
“Before the end of the first half we had a clear penalty but the referee ignored and also two clear penalties in the second half but they were ignored. Look at the kind of penalty, he awarded to King Faisal to level the score,” he quizzed
“Officiating in the game was like a comedy. We played well but unlucky to suffer an elimination via penalty shootouts”
King Faisal are now through to the last four of the FA Cup with a 3-1 triumph on penalties.

Aduana Stars FC will have to turn attention to the Premier League as, currently sit summit of the league table with 44 points after 25 league games.
