Coach Sarfo Castro on Saturday led Basake Holy Stars to secure its first away point on matchday 12 against Kenpong Football Academy at Swedru Sports Stadium.
A five-game losing streak for the Nzema-based team in away games came to an end with a goalless draw in the ongoing Access Bank Division One League.
The match on Saturday was Coach Sarfo Castro’s debut game as Basake Holy Stars’ head coach.
The home side started on a very higher note looking to break the deadlock, but the difficult nature of the Holy Stars’ defence prevented them from scoring.
Despite the early incursions made, Kenpong Football Academy failed to find the back of the net after the first department of the game.
After recess, the same approach from both teams who kept attacking with intent and dedication but none of their attempts found the back of the net.
However, Holy Stars goalkeeper Winston Worko turned away multiple chances made by Kenpong Football Academy, particularly in the final 30 minutes when officials and home team supporters were astounded by his performance.
Heading to the last 28 minutes of the game, both Sarfo Castro of Holy Stars and Kenpong’s Frimpong Menso made some series of substitutions expecting a change in the game, but all yielded nothing.
The Nzema-based team played a usual defensive game in the final ten minutes since they knew a point in Swedru was a decent outcome.
After the game, Prince Opoku, a striker for Basake Holy Stars, received the most valuable player award.
With 16 points, the Holy Star is now ranked seventh in the league, whilst Kenpong Football Academy is positioned fifth after matchday 12.
Basake Holy Stars will host Future Stars on Wednesday at Crosby Awuah Memorial Park on matchday 13 of the Access Bank Division One League and take on Asemkom on Sunday.
