Ghana winger Solomon Asante registered his sixth league goal for Phoenix Rising in their 4-0 win over Last Vegas Lights FC in the American second-tier league on Thursday morning.

The build up to the game was hogged around coach Patrice Carteron's departure just a day before the must-win encounter.

The first half was cagey as both sides failed to convert the chances that came their way.

But a brace from Jason Johnson and a 53rd minute strike from Joseph Farrell made it 3-0 for Black and Red lads.

Asante, who captained the side again, completed the route in the 92nd minute after converting a spot-kick awarded to his side.

The 27-year-old played full throttle while Gladson Awako lasted 76 minutes for Phoenix.

Asante has netted six goals in his 15 appearances for Phoenix Rising FC in the game season.
