0 71

Hearts of Oak returned to winning ways with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Great Olympics in the Accra derby. Having failed to win their two previous matches, Hearts were under pressure to win and responded with their finest performance of the season as a brace from Benjamin Affutu Kotey, Joseph Esso and a debut goal for forward Daniel Afriyie sealed the win. Hearts are now in 7th place with 21 points; 6points from the summit.

Elsewhere, Medeama S.C posted a comfortable 2-0 win over Techiman Eleven Wonders in Tarkwa. A first half rocket from Akwasi Donsu and a second-half finish from Isaac Adjei Boateng ensured the Mauves and Yellows continued their charge for the title. The result keeps them in first place on 27 points. Eleven Wonders are now 10th on 18 points and could drop further on the log if Liberty Professionals or Inter Allies were to win.

In Sogakope, Aduana Stars pipped West Africa Football Academy 1-0 on Wednesday. The defending league champions won courtesy Yahaya Mohammed’s second half strike to stay within touching distance of leaders Medeama. Aduana are on 27 points but are in second place because of Medeama’s superior goal difference.

In Obuasi, Ashantigold’s title chances were dealt another blow as they lost at home to Bechem United by a goal to nil. Seventeen-year-old Prince Adu Kwabena’s goal was enough for the away team as Ashgold slipped further away from the top. Ashgold now have 22points; 5points behind leaders Medeama S.C while Bechem United remain in 8th on 21 points.

In other games, King Faisal’s search for a first win of the season continues after a 2-1 defeat to Ebusua Dwarfs in Cape Coast. The home side completed a remarkable turnaround thanks to a second half brace from Seidu Abubakari, after Emmanuel Maidawa’s first half striker for King Faisal. The Kumasi based side are firmly rooted at the bottom of the league with just 6points while Dwarfs remain in 16th place despite the win.

Dreams F.C continued their unimpressive form as they played out a goalless draw with Karela United at the Theatre of Dreams. The result leaves Karela in 17th place while Dreams F.C remain in 13th on 16 points.

Goals from Kofi Owusu and Stephen Amankona helped Berekum Chelsea beat Legon Cities 2-0. Chelsea, with that win, move to 4th place with 23 points to keep their title hopes alive. Legon Cities, meanwhile, have 16 points in 14th place.

Later today, Asante Kotoko will play Elmina Sharks at the Accra Sports Stadium, while Liberty Professionals welcome Inter Allies to the Alhaji Sly Tetteh Park. Both games will kick off at 3pm.
