Solomon Asante scores 11th league goal for Phoenix Rising

Ghana winger Solomon Asante scored his seventh league goal for Phoenix Rising in their 4-1 win over Portland Timbers II in the United Soccer League.

The Arizona-based outfit extended their advantage in the 63rd-minute courtesy Collin Fernandez before Marco Farfan reduced the deficit in 72nd minute.

Phoenix regained their two-goal cushioning ten minutes later via Cortez before Asante sealed the win in the 89th minute.
