Medeama Sporting Club crashed out Samartex FC in the Ghana Premier league match day 16 in skipper Joseph Tetteh Zutah’s last match for the Mauve and Yellow at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa.
Captain Zutah, who wore the No. 20 jersey, was handed a space on the substitution list in his last game for the Mauve and Yellow, as they look to bid a farewell to their captain.
In the context of a glorious campaign and a glittering career it was hard to begrudge Medeama and their departing captain all the pomp and circumstance.
The first half of the game ended goalless as Coach Umar and his boys were desperate to grab a win to crown a 15 year career for their Captain.
Back from recess, Jonathan Sowah handed the home side the needed lead with just five(5) minutes into the second.
Bulky and experienced defender Vincent Atinga got his name on the score sheet when he converted a neat ball from the penalty spot to give Medeama a two goal lead in the 70minute.
Captain Joseph Tetteh was introduced in the 78minutes to have 12 under his sleeves in a game of his final match for the Mauve and Yellow.
Medeama held on to their 2 goals and maintained the same momentum to seal it for their departing captain.
They are 8th on the league log with 23 points after a back to back win over King Faisal and Samartex in a space of 5 days.
