Ghana Premier League - Round 3, Round Up - Hearts win finally, Aduana winless

Points lost, and points gained, the tale told of another round of matches as the third round of games in the 2018 Ghana Premier League elapsed. It was a day for the home fans as no away side managed a point in the 6 games played on Wednesday. On Thursday,  Hearts managed their first league win playing away to Dwarfs in the 7th match of the round.

10 home goals and 3 away goals rounded up the day with Chelsea's clash with Sharks postponed.

Cape Coast : Dreams 1, All Stars 0
Playing at the Cape Coast Stadium due to television coverage, Dreams' believe ensured that they defeated All Stars. On the 6th minute, Dreams FC's number 7 shirted man, Zuberu Sharani produced the killer pinch that ensured that All Stars went back to WA with no point. Eric Gawu's flick to Zuberu for the goal was spectacular.

Tarkwa : Medeama 1, Kotoko 0
For the second season running Medeama has made sure that Kotoko's assumed favorite tag whenever they visited the Western Region is a thing of the past. On an afternoon when Asante Kotoko's safest pair of gloves,  Felix Annan had produced a performance that meant they were going to Kumasi with a point, Kwame Boateng's 93rd minute goal halted that believe. It happens to be the third penalty suffered by Kotoko in their last two visits to Tarkwa.

Techiman : Eleven Wonders 3, Bechem Utd 1
Kwaku Adu scored in between a goal in each half by Abdul Wahab to give the home side their first win of the season. Maxwell Frimpong pulled a goal back with four minutes of the game to spare but it wasn't enough to prevent the Hawks from losing.

Aminu Mohammed (WAFA)- 3 games,  3 goals,  1 assist 
Sogakope : WAFA 2, Aduana 0
45 home games without a defeat and the academy boys were surely not going to be defeated. Aminu Mohammed's deflected free kick and Musah's header condemned the defending League Champions to their first defeat. Tried as they did,  a jaded yet experienced side failed to match the witty legs on the plastic park. 

Obuasi : Ashantigold 1, Karela 0
It was all joy as the home crowd erupted cheerfully to greet Osei Agyemang 's goal. The defender squeezed in a header to before the 60th minute mark to have the Miners all the points at stake. It was the second away defeat for Karela and the margin is always slim. 3/3 for the Miners.

Cape Coast : Inter Allies 2, Liberty Professionals 0
Baffour Gyawu provided the antedote for the eleven is to one side as attacker Adebayor was left in the cold on the bench. Gyawu scored a brace in a space of four minutes to the delight of his Japanese manager,  Kenechi. Liberty meanwhile have failed to gain a point for the second time of asking.

Cape Coast : Dwarfs 0, Hearts of Oak 2
Patrick Razak came off the bench to save the day for the rainbow boys In the game played on Thursday afternoon. Dwarfs led by veteran Joe Tagoe had a chance filled first half but they failed to convert any. Razak called off the bluffs of the home defence when he controlled and planted in a cross from Daniel Kodie. Joseph Esso doubled the phobians lead when he coolly tapped home Bonney's low driven cross.  Hearts' goalie Ben Mensah who was playing his first game of the season as well as Razak made mince meat of all that was thrown at him. Hearts' first win,  Dwarfs first lose.
