Berekum Arsenal yesterday survived a scare before beating Wonder Club Accra Great Olympics 2-1 in the Glo Premier League match at the Golden City Park in Berekum.
The game was heading for a 1-1 draw when Arsenal’s Francis Aggrey got the winner on the 90th minute when he struck a grounder to beat goalkeeper Muntari Tagoe.
Arsenal scored the opener through Ernest Obeng’s header following a rebound. But Olympics, determined to repeat a 2001 feat when they beat Arsenal at the same venue, cancelled the lead on the 75th minute through Emmanuel Lartey.
However, that feat by Olympics could not be repeated as Arsenal, with their strength at home always towering, lifted their game in the final 10 minutes which paid off on the 90th minute through Aggrey’s goal.
