Ghana - GNA

Berekum Chelsea staged a late fight to beat visiting Edubiase United 2-1 in their Glo Premier League week seven duel at the Golden City Park, Berekum.
     
Chelsea left it late to pull the winner through Latif Salifu who earlier missed from the spot. 
       
The homers began well but left Edubiase  off the hook in five minutes following a fine build up between  Eric Bekoe and Latif Salifu, but goalkeeper  Eric Nii Baah proved equal to the challenge to keep the scores barren.
         
Playing with influential captain, Abdul Basit, Chelsea looked alive from the early exchange, but  Adams Basit almost shot the visitors ahead in 14th minutes after creating space for himself just behind the defensive box to let fly a shot that missed target narrowly.
           
Chelsea responded by tearing away  when Salifu tore away from his markers on the right flanks, but his attempt to pick out Bekoe from the opposite side went way off.
         
But the host  invaded five minutes on, compelling the visitors Abeiku Ainooson to parry away danger after Solomon Asante surged.
         
The lead seem to be closing in on Chelsea when they earned a  penalty in 35 minutes.  Asante was brought flying in the box but Latif who stepped up saw  Nii Baah's save. Salifu was seeking to score his fifth in the league but the goalkeeper picked his spot, dived and parried back to play for clearance.
       
Chelsea should have headed the recess at least be a goal up but Bekoe effort from a free kick deep in the area missed surprisingly. An in-swing fell to him, somehow, he managed to send his free header so wide from so close with Nii Baah already compromised.
       
Chelsea walk straight into attack from recess and  Kissi Boateng's fine finish was expelled by Nii Baah;  Bekoe pounced on a rebound only to be denied by goal post. 
     
Asante putt the homers ahead five minutes into the half when he raced, side footed his marker and chipped with his unfavourite left foot beyond Nii Baah who had no answer.
       
But the jubilation quickly died down when Justin Owusu handled the ball in the box to gift  the visitors a penalty which Ebenezer Ofori converted to draw parity.
       
Just when the game headed a draw,  Chelsea went ahead on the stroke of time. Latif picked up a ball deep in midfield, scraped through defence and shot tamely to beat Nii Baah.
