King Faisal shows resilience to beat Karela United 3-2
King Faisal proved the team is keen on escaping relegation on Wednesday afternoon when the side battled to come from behind to beat Karela United 3-2 in the Ghana Premier League.
The team based in Kumasi hosted the Week 24 opponent of the Ghanaian top-flight league at the Dr. Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.
Late in the 42nd minute of the first half, Emmanuel Owusu Boakye scored to give Karela United.
However, King Faisal had an instant reply and equalised through Samuel Kusi to force the first half to end in a 1-1 draw.
After recess, the home team improved a lot and scored to take the lead in the 59th minute when Abdul Latif found the back of the Karela United net.
In the 71st minute, a Benjamin Bature strike dragged the game beyond the reach of Karela United. Although the visiting team would net a second goal via Nketiah Ishmael, King Faisal held on to secure a 3-2 win to amass all three points.
The win today has propelled King Faisal out of the relegation zone and into the 14th position.
