MMOPANE: Ishmael Amponsah’s last minute header was the difference as Holy Ghost opened a seven-point lead at the top of the Debswana First Division South league standings.

The log leaders beat Black Forest 1-0 in the league tie played at the Holy Ghost Park on Saturday afternoon. The two sides entered the contest with Holy Ghost carrying a four-point lead ahead of Forest.

The top of the clash, however, did not live up to the billing early on as spectators had to wait until the 21st minute to see a goal. Holy Ghost’s Mpho Dikganetso tried to produce a moment of magic as he slowly drilled a free kick unto Ofentse Chitutu’s path. But the latter shot wide off the post. Two minutes later on the other end, Mogomotsi Kerebotswe’s deflected shot hit the low upright. Wame Kebalepile headed wide on the 28th minute as both sides started the hunt for an opener. Kgomotsi Kgopegang came close for the hosts inside the last 10 minutes of the half but his shot from range sailed just over the bar. It was 0-0 at the break with Holy Ghost having had the better half compared to Forest.
