West African Football Academy (WAFA) recorded their first win of the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League season, beating Medeama SC 1-0 at the Sogakope Park on Sunday afternoon.
Midfielder Sampson Agyapong climbed off the bench to score the only goal of the game which handed coach Guilermo Zaragoza’s boys a first win in nine matches since the start of the campaign.
WAFA looked determined from start of the first half as they made some strides in the opening minutes but Medeama’s defense managed to deal with their threats with relative ease.
Attacking duo of Lawrence Agyekum and Emmanuel Agyemang came close to scoring for the home side in the course of the first half but they both managed to send their attempts wide.
WAFA enjoyed the Lion’s share of the ball possession in the opening half but could not trouble the defense as the half ended scoreless.
Back from recess, the Academy lads continued from where they left off and looked flamboyant in their display without the needed cutting edge.
With the game seemingly heading to to goalless end, WAFA looked to their bench and called on Samson Agyapong in the 85th to replace Godwin Agbevor.
The Black Sattelite star needed just ten minutes to make a huge impact on the game, scoring in the 95th minute to hand his side a much needed triumph.
The win sees WAFA move out of the drop zone to the 15th position on the league log with 8 points.
