Published on: 25 May 2023

Ghanaian forward Isaac Atanga scored his first goals for Aalesunds FK on Tuesday in a 3-1 win over Molde in the Norwegian top flight.

The 22-year-old scored twice in the second half to help his side secure back-to-back wins in the Norway Eliteserien after not winning in their previous six matches.

These goals were also his first for the club in seven games since joining in March from Goztepe.

Aalesunds FK opened the scoring through a penalty five minutes before the end of the first half, expertly converted by Moses Ebiye.

Sivert Heggheim then missed a penalty that could have equalized for the visitors as they went into the break behind.

Isaac Atanga then netted the second goal for the home side in the 57th minute after being set up by Alexander Andersen.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate completed his brace three minutes later, courtesy of an assist from Moses Ebiye.

Niklas Odegard then pulled one back for Molde in the 90th minute to end the game with a score of 3-1.
