Ghanaian striker Dennis Agyare Antwi’s 17th-minute penalty strike was enough to power Gokulam Kerala FC to a 1-0 victory over RoundGlass Punjab FC as they climbed the second place in the I-League in India on Friday night.
Gokulam is now level on points with third-place TRAU and six points behind league leaders Churchill Broth.
In the 8th minute, Dennis Antwi latched onto a Mayakannan low-cross, however, his shot went wide.
In the 16th minute, Saurabh Bhanwala brought down the Ghanaian international inside the box. The referee pointed to the spot and Antwi coolly converted the penalty kick to hand the Malabarians a solitary goal lead which eventually gave them all three points in the game.
Meanwhile, his compatriot Philip Adjah Tetteh also started for Gokulam Kerala FC and lasted the full duration of the game.
