MTN FA Cup: Attram DeVisser Thrash Star Makers 5-1 To Book Place In Next Stage


Division Two side Attram De Visser Soccer Academy (ADVSA) advanced to the round of 64 stage of the ongoing 2021 MTN FA Cup competition with a 5-1 thrashing of Stars Makers FC at the McDan La Town Park last Friday.

Goals from Kingsley Sekyi, Joshua Anim, Emmanuel Cudjoe, Stephen Bolam & Abass Tawiah in the 26th, 28th, 53rd, 82nd and 88th minutes of the game dwarfed a sublime freekick goal from Star Makers skipper Abdul Hamid Mohammed in time added on.

ADVSA, as expected, was the stronger of the two sides as they reduced play into the half of the visitors, however, the lack of purposefulness on the part of the front line of the host saved the opposition from going down in the opening exchanges.

It came as no fluke when Sekyi latched onto a through ball to open the scoring before Anim made it two before their fans could finish celebrating the first goal.

Back from recess, ADVSA kept the goal area of their Madina-based opponents boiling and made it 3-0 this time from the spot which was expertly converted by skipper Emmanuel Cudjoe.

With the back against the wall, Stars Makers who were a man down resorted to defending to earn a respectable scoreline but Bolam & Tawiah had other ideas as they scored two goals in the last 10 minutes of the game.

When all was pointing to a clean sheet for the home side, skipper Abdul Hamid Mohammed of Star Makers popped up in time added on to slot home a free-kick from about 35 yards to end the game 5-1.

The best player of the entire game went to Hafiz Ibrahim with Emmanuel Cudjoe picking the best defender award as well.

The game also saw the young DeVisser Attram Jnr make his official debut in a first MTN FA Cup competition together with Moses Abah.
