MMOPANE: Holy Ghost are the Debswana First Division South league champions and automatically gained promotion to the Botswana Premier League following their 3-1 win over Taung Young Strikers on Saturday afternoon.

The team achieved the new status during the final day fixture played at the Holy Ghost Park. Four minutes into the tie, Teddy Gunda put Holy Ghost in the lead, beating the goalkeeper to the bottom corner. But the home side’s happiness was short lived as on the 14th minute Motsumi nodded one in to draw level.

Ishmael Amponsah tried from range with a powerful effort but it was well saved by the keeper on 21st minute. Amponsah was a thorn on the opposition’s defense on the afternoon as on the 33rd minute he had another go at goal but was once again denied by the goalkeeper.
