Ghanaian defender Leeroy Owusu played a pivotal role in Odense BK's 3-1 victory over Hvidovre in the Danish Superligaen on Thursday evening, contributing an assist to the team's winning effort.

The match marked the latest chapter in the teams' history, with Hvidovre previously claiming two wins and Odense BK three.

Owusu was a starter in the game at the Pro Ventilation Arena and demonstrated his endurance by lasting the full game. Despite Hvidovre's dominance in possession, Odense BK managed to create more shooting opportunities, reflecting the team's effective counter-attacking strategy.

The opening goal of the match came in the 11th minute, with Odense BK's Tom Trybull heading the ball from a very close range to the bottom left corner. The assist was provided by Alasana Manneh with a cross following a corner.

In the 48th minute, Odense Boldklub extended their lead with a header from Luca Kjerrumgaard, who found the bottom right corner from the right side of the six-yard box. Owusu's contribution to the goal was significant, as he provided the assist with a well-placed cross.

Hvidovre managed to pull one back in the 81st minute, with Hvidovre's Lirim Qamili converting the penalty with a left-footed shot to the bottom right corner. However, Odense BK held on to their lead and secured the three points.

Owusu's performance in the game was impressive, and he has been a valuable player for Odense BK this season. The midfielder has played 26 games and assisted four goals in the Danish Superligaen.
