Flamboyant Okyeman Planners share spoils with Premier League side Liberty

Ghanaian second-tier side Okyeman Planners perpetuated their impressive pre-season run with a 1-1 drawn game with Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals at the newly constructed All Nations University Sports Complex in Koforidua on Sunday afternoon.

Planners slit open the Liberty defence as early as the 3rd minute of the encounter. Offensive midfielder Richard Quartey raced the enterprising side into the lead when Seth Kumah initiated a move from midfield as he located Edmund Gyan with a visionary calibration. Gyan in turned laid a carpet pass to the promising Emmanuel McCarthy dubbed Marcelo – his weighted pass found Quartey who brilliantly took on two defenders before planting the ball firmly beyond the reach of the Liberty goalkeeper.
