Ghana Premier League- Day 2- As it happened

The Ghana Premier League this weekend had nothing to offer but goals and thrills.  No masquerades,  no charades but it certainly was a parade of quality football games. 


8 games were honoured as scheduled with 2 away wins and as many as 15 goals being picked up from the back of the nets. Some clubs fought with their all yet they could not be separated. 2 games were played on Saturday with the remaining 6 taking place on Sunday 

This is how it all happened; 

Cape Coast;  Hearts 1,  Ashantigold 3
It was Hearts' first home game and their first at their newly adopted home base.  The stage was all set for the kill after their float through the principal streets to canvas for support. Surprisingly, the miners shocked the rainbow boys with goals from James Akaminko,  Amos Addai and Shafiu Mumuni. Joseph Esso however got a consolation goal for the home side. Too little,  too late. 

Wa; All Stars 0, Dwarfs 0
Dwarfs continued with their impressive record at Wa, as such they left the northern part of the country with a point in hand. Tried as they did,  the 2016 League Champions failed to find the back of the net. 

Joseph Esso of Hearts of Oak 
Kumasi;  Asante Kotoko 1, Inter Allies 0
After a solid and resilient performance in the first half of the game,  Obed Owusu's header on the 53rd minute mark ensured that the away side left the stadium empty handed.  Asante Kotoko had their goal tender to thank after making a series of point blank saves to ensure that the game was done and dusted for the homesters.

Aiyinase;  Karela 1, Eleven Wonders 1
Coach Johnson Smith and his boys managed to get their first point in the league though they were held at home by the travelling side. William Opoku, a name well known to the local supporters scored for the home side but Abdul Wahab ensured that the game ended in a draw.  

Dansoman;  Liberty 1, WAFA 3
The academy boys were once again up to the task,  this time away from home.  Aminu Mohammed got his second goal of the season in grand style with substitutes,  Richard Danso and Charles Boateng also getting on the score sheet for the away side.  Bright Andoh managed to get a goal for Liberty but the home side had run out of time to stage a comeback. 

Bechem;  Bechem Utd 2, Medeama 0
Two goals from Seth Sowah and Emmanuel Boakye ensured that all the points at stake were kept at Bechem.  Medeama put up a good performance but the Bechem boys would have none of that. 

Jubilant players of WAFA 
Berekum;  Chelsea 1, Dreams 1
Samuel Pimpong who came up with the assist for Sharani's goal at Dawu found the back of the net himself far away from home. Just when the away side thought they had bagged all 3 points,  Stephen Amankona halted their dreams with a brilliant equalizer to share the spoils. What a relief it was for the home crowd.

Elmina;  Sharks 0, Aduana 0
Sharks' failed to swallow up the stars from Dormaa in an end to end game.  There was always the hope of a goal being scored before the 90th minute mark but both sides failed to convert any of the chances that they came across. A beautiful game but nothing could separate the two sides.  


The 3rd round of matches will be up on Wednesday. 

Let's join in the fun.
