Liberia experienced her second worst defeat on Saturday in three years when Ghana’s Black Meteors defeated Junior Lone Star 5-1 to qualify for the second phase in the CAF U-23 Championship on a 7-1 aggregate at the Tamale Sports Stadium in Ghana.

It was the return leg, after Junior Lone Star lost 2-0 in the first leg which was also played in Ghana due to the Ebola situation in Liberia.

Kotoko forward Dauda Mohammed, Baba Mensah, Sadiq Alhassan and Tamimu Montari all got their names on the score sheet.

Cooper Gypia scored Liberia’s consolation goal.

Ghana will now face DR Congo in the next round.

It may be recalled that Liberia got her first worst defeat in October 2012, when the Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated Lone Star 6-1 to qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations 8-3 on aggregate.
