Controversial penalty denies WAFA victory in Cape Coast

botchway May 6, 2018

WAFA SC survived some controversial refereeing decisions to draw 1-1 with Wa All Stars in Cape Coast on Sunday.
The Wa-based side were awarded a questionable penalty in injury time, but Kingsley Effah smashed it again the cross bar.
The Academy Boys had first choice goalkeeper Richmond Ayi sent off for double yellow cards and his replacement Prince Bilson picked up a yellow card later on.
Probably, Wa AllStars should have taken the lead after 13 minutes but for indecision from Mohammed Yakubu
In the 33rd minute, it was WAFA goalkeeper Richmond Ayi who kept the scoreline barren as he produced one-handed save to parry away Yakubu’s shot at goal.
Two minutes later, WAFA were denied a penalty after Richard Danso was pulled down inside the box, but the referee Justice Adu Poku shockingly allowed play to continue.
WAFA slowly came into the game and found the back of the net.
In the second half, things really did not change but out of the blue, All Stars were given a questionable penalty.
David Abagna firmly planted it at the back of the net. Referee Justice Poku again awarded Wa All Stars a late penalty which was wasted.
