It was Match day 6 and with the celebration of fertility on- going worldwide, fans trooped to the various centres hoping to see some goals. 13 goals in 7 games might not be enough to be jubilant over after all. 
Typically, 5 home wins were recorded with Dwarfs getting the only away win of the round. WAFA and Hearts of Oak sold a 5 goal thriller in the match of the week. 

We bring you some things you we observed as the games came to a close.

1. That Away Goal
Goals are needed to win matches but it's always been easier to score at home than away. Asghold is a great testament to this. Having fetched 3 goals in 2 home games, the Miners haven't been that prolific in their 4 games away from Obuasi. 0 goals scored in all 4 games. Time for Svetislav to sit up?

2. The Liberty to Dream?
Ahead of their trip to Dansoman, Dreams FC looked buoyant especially as they had never lost a game to Liberty. The Dawu lads dreamt on only for Liberty Pros. Simon Zibo to wake them up from their slumber. The first half goal was enough to end the Dream.

3. Springing to the Maximum
Two clubs hugely criticised for their inability to win games finally did. Former Ghana under 17 mid fielder, Isaac Donkor's goal at Tema ensured that Dwarfs got their first win whilst Chelsea also got a win. It's truly a time for fertility. It's spring time!

4. No Taylor Show
One thing has become synonymous this season, every time Karela plays, there must be a "Taylor" on the score sheet. The attacking duo have of Sarfo Taylor and Diawisie Taylor have scored 50 ‰ of Westerners goals this season. Diawisie had a personal record of scoring at the Nduom Sports Complex on his previous two visits. Well, on Sunday, none of the Taylors struck as Karela lost by 2 goals to Elmina Sharks. 

5. Conceding Penalties
In consecutive home games, Bechem United have scored first against Kotoko and Aduana, two of the best clubs only for the young lads to concede equalisers through second half penalties. Full of youths, the exuberance can't be overlooked but Head Coach , Osei Wire knows it's always important to score without conceding especially at home. 2 points fetches from 6 yet could have been 6/6 if........ 

6. Tandoh Flexing His Tactics 
After a poor showing last season, Aduana Stars have looked up to Paul Tandoh (WO) to help revive the club's fortunes. He comes nowhere near the big names to have previously managed the technical division of the club. Not a pundit favorite but all through this season, he has matched every opponent with some tactical ingenuity. Playing Caleb Amankwaah as either a right or left centre back, his tactical usage of Samuel Bioh and Fataw Abdul must be applauded. He really knows his team.

7. Opportunists 
Opportunity comes but once says anything old adage. Of the 13 different goal scorers on Matchday 6, 2 were spectacular. Not in the way the goals came but these guys were in to replace established players and in so doing they found the back of the nets. George Amonoo, replacing Felix Addo set Sharks on the winning way whilst Tebo who also replaced Medeama's suspended Awudu Tahiru struck the only goal as the Mauve and Yellows won at home. You just can't overlook them.
