Karela United had to come from behind to beat Elmina Sharks 3-1 at the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park in a Ghana Premier League (GPL) game.
Elmina Sharks took the lead through experience midfielder James Bissue, after driving in a ferocious strike from a free-kick in the 15th minute.
Karela needed inspiration after going behind and found it in the 24th minute through Richard Berko.
Both teams played with caution from there as the first half ended 1-1.
Karela United coach Evans Adotey made a couple of changes in the second half as the home side chased victory, bringing on Kwame Boateng for Samuel Ofori and Darlington Fosu for Obed Kofi.
With six minutes left Kwame Boateng put Karela in-front for the first time in the game with a brilliant strike.
Karela United were then awarded a penalty which was expertly converted by striker Diawisie Taylor.
