Ghana Premier League - 5 Round of Matches- Hearts and Kotoko destroyed, Vintage Ashgold

The final whistle, when blown, is always met with jeers and cheers depending on the side of the coin you owe your affinity. The weekend didn't fail to entertain football fans nationwide as 14 clubs put up a show for the record book. The goals, boos,  bench shouts and funfair run late into the evening of the two days.

7 games were played across the country with Liberty Professionals the only away team to record a win. 12 goals were scored in the games with Dawu Park being the only venue where a goal was not scored. Ashantigold look destined for the league trophy though it is early days yet. 

Adebayor joined by his mates to celebrate his third goal of the season 
Here is how it happened across the various match centres 

Saturday 

Len Clay Stadium : Dwarfs 1,  Bechem Utd 1
Daniel Egyin bagged the equalizer for the away side after Okudzeto had slotted in a goal which could have been the match winner. Ebusua Dwarfs came in to the game having lost 2 games on the trot but their desire was not enough to see them through. 

Len Clay Stadium : All Stars 1, Sharks 1
David Abagna drew first blood for the Wa based side in added on time in the first half but S. Arthur will draw parity in the second period for the away side. Both sides played with the eagerness to be crowned victorious on the day but fate had it's own story to tell. 

Sunday

Golden City Park : Chelsea 3, Hearts 0
After 5pm,  the streets of Berekum was all fun. The Blues had won their first game of the season in a routine win over Hearts of Oak. Berekum has never been a comfortable place for the away side and the second half of the game told that. Stephen Amankona scored first for the home side before captain, Braimah Mohammed doubled their lead minutes later. The phobians hopes of getting back into the game was halted as on loan midfielder,  Collins Ameyaw grabbed the third of the day,  his first of the second.  

How they stand 
Dawu Park : Dreams FC 0, Karela 0
It was a battle between two newly promoted sides and nothing could separate them.  Karela still couldn't get to score a goal away from home but for once they didn't concede too.  Tried as they home side did,  the goal post was locked up from Nzema and wouldn't open up regardless of the efforts. 

Len Clay Stadium : Ashantigold 2,  Asante Kotoko 0
It's been a good start to the season for the Miners and they weren't going to relent on that. In a tight first half, both sides exhibited some good play to the delight of the crowd. Ashantigold's offensive play bore fruits when Samed Ibraheem guided a cross into the net in the second half.  Moments later,  an unmarked Shafiu Mumuni squeezed a shot past the on rushing Felix Annan to kill the porcupines. 

Shafiu Mumuni,  3 goals in 5 games 
Tema Stadium : Inter Allies 1, WAFA 0
Inter Allies had a bad week prior to this and as such they needed to deliver. Victorien Adebayor slotted home from a free kick to ensure that the Academy boys lost again on the road. But the away side,  will they ever stop delivering a good display on the field?  

Len Clay Stadium : Wonders 0, Liberty 2
Sunday evening and Liberty got their first three points of the season. Wonders missed some chances to win the game in both halfs of the game and they were rightly made to pay for their profiligacy. Brite Andoh connected from a cross to get the first goal before Ben Eshun got the second after he was put through on goal. 


On Wednesday, the race to the crown will continue.
