Ghanaian midfielder Gladson Awako scored for Phoenix Rising as they beat Colorado Springs Switchbacks 4-0 in the United Soccer League on Sunday August 26, 2018.


A first half that failed to produce goals was brought to life when Awako opened the scoring in the 68th minute.

Late goals from Joe Farrell, Chris Cortez and Kevaughn Frater ensured the Arizona-based outfit continue their hot-streak form, where they have picked four wins out five.

Awako enjoyed full minutes of action for the Didier Drogba-owned club but there was no sign of in-form Solomon Asante in their squad.
