Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has recorded its first win in the ongoing Ghana Universities Sports Association (GUSA) Games after 2-1 victory over Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).

In a game dubbed “Match of the debutants”, it was GIJ who came up top with a solid second-half performance.

Ghana Institute of Journalism doubled their advantage via beautifully taken free-kick by the captain of the side, Hussein Abdul Ganiyu.

The midfielder lobbed the ball beyond the defensive block and straight beyond the GIMPA goalkeeper who had no chance of parring the ball wide.

A goalkeeping error made GIMPA pull one back in the last 10 minutes of the game.

The win gives Ghana Institute of Journalism 5 points from five games and they are 7th on the league standings in the 2020 GUSA Games.

GIJ will next play the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) on Tuesday, 14th January 2020 and GIMPA will face the same opponent on Monday, 13th January 2020.
