Liberty Professionals ended a 4-game losing streak with a thumping 4-0 win over Elmina Sharks at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope on Sunday.
Liberty, who have adopted WAFA’s home ground for their GPL home matches as a result of the suspension of their Carl Reindorf Park, found goals through Paul Kwame, Simon Asamoah, Kwaku Karikari and new signing William Opoku Mensah to condemn Nii Odartey Lamptey to a first defeat as Elmina Sharks coach.
Liberty had not scored in their last 4 matches, losing by an aggregate 5-0 but Paul Kwame set them on their way in the 36th minute with a neat header which gave them the lead at half time.
Back from recess, Asamoah doubled the Liberty’s lead on the hour mark before Karikari converted an 80th minute penalty for 3-0.
But the Scientific Soccer Lads were not done as substitute Opoku Mensah, who joined the club on a free transfer last month, came off the bench to score his debut goal for the club just three minutes after being introduced.
The win did not change Liberty’s position on the league table where they still remain 17th, but it moved them to within one point of safety.
Elmina Sharks remain in 13th position, 5 points above Liberty.
