Ghanaian striker, Ropapa Kwamina Mensah scored a brace for Pittsburgh Riverhounds in their 5-0 thumping of Hartford Athletic on Saturday evening.
The lanky Ghanaian forward has been a great addition to the Riverhounds team since he joined from Nashville SC ahead of this campaign and has hit the ground running by banging in some important goals for the Black and Yellows in the USL Championship.
Ryan James opened the scoring in the first half after 11 minutes of action to put the host ahead in the game before Mensah scored his first goal of the match and his team’s second on the 27 minutes.
The home team scored at the end of the first half from the spot when Anthony Velarde made it 3-0 and started the second 45 minutes too with an early goal from James who scored his second after two minutes back from recess to make it 4 – 0.
The former Inter Allies marks man grabbed his second on the evening after 57 minutes to put the icing on the cake for the host who demolished their visitors 5-0.
The 23-year-old predator finisher has six goals and two assists in the United States League Championships this year after 13 games.
