Kotobabi based Victory Stars Fc last Sunday started their Accra East District Football Juvenile League with a sweet victory over Star Fc in both the U13 and U17 categories respectively.
Victory Stars Fc complained about the pitch that they are using now because it was full of sand and they haven’t trained there before too but they must play the game so they started with a big bang from the U13 squad who eaily defeated Star Fc by two goals to nil.
The youngsters use nicknames in calling each other so Victory Stars got their goals through Kagawa and Otoo in the first and second half respectively.
The U17 game was a tough one for Victory Stars who played with a man down from the 65th minute of the second half till the final whistle. They started the match with all enthusiasm to notch the three points astake and they did it in a style with their too marksman Bright Donkor. He got a pass from Gladstone Aidoo known as C. Roo and he beat his marker with pace and rounded off the goalie to score into an empty net.
They held on till half time and came back strongly in the second half with Star Fc dictating the play,they scored the second goal through a cornerkick headed in by their Centre back Vans,who was also shown the red card for a second bookable offense. Victory Stars Fc lost the captain Claude through injury and had to play with 10 men.
Star Fc came back into the game when they got a goal back through lack of concerntration on the part of the defenders. This forced the technical handlers to change their strategy by playing the potent striker in defense but he added to his tally by scoring a wonderful freekick from 30yards. Bright Donkor is the new striker which every team must be wary about.
Star Fc got another through a spot kick after the referee awarded an alleged penalty kick for them. Star Fc scored and piled on the pressure but Victory Stars held on to snatch the vital 3 points on the day.
Ghanaians should watchout for these youngsters in the future; Gladstone Aidoo,Claude,Vans,Isaac Blessing, Joseph, Bright Donkor etc. Victory Stars are been sponsored by Dil Sports Promotion based in Belgium. Victory Stars !!!!!! God is Real!!!!!!!
