Sunyani, (B/A) Jan. 29, GNA - House Six emerged football champions of the Inter-Houses Sports Festival of the Twene-Amanfo Senior High School when they beat House Two 3-1 in the final match to close the weeklong event in Sunyani.
It was House Two who took the lead in 10th minute with a sizzling strike when Kwasi Brafo\'s free-kick zoomed to the far corner of the net displacing goalkeeper Benjamin Akoroga of House Six.
On resumption of the second half, the House Six lads redoubled their efforts and with Frank Darko, Emmanuel Adomah and Yusif Sumaila combining effectively they grabbed the equalizer through Darko.
The equalizer gingered House Six to crave for more goals but a resilient Kwasi Brafo and his colleagues refused to budge.
Play from then became more hectic with the teams missing goal-scoring chances for the technical bench of House Six led by Edem Amengor quickly making some substitutions.
House Two also followed suit but the technical strategy of House Six proved better as Yusif Sumaila scored their second goal in the 67th minute.
Undaunted, House Two who eliminated defending champions, House Five in the elimination series of the competition, did their best to level up but Emmanuel Adomah\'s last-minute goal for House Six wrecked their ambitions.
In athletics, House Six again became the champions when they bagged 123 points in both the Boys\' and Girls\' divisions.
They were followed by House Three with 116 points, House Two with 110 points, House One with 96 points, Houses Four and Five collected 88 and 47 points to place fifth and sixth respectively.

The former record holder took the second position with 1.60 metres, while Master Richard Kyeremeh of House Four placed third with 1.52 metres.
Issaka had earlier won the boys\' 800 metres race in a time of 2:17.90 seconds.
