Cagey duels mixed with some good goals told the story of the 4th round of games honoured in the GFA Special Competition. Though marginal, there seem to be an increase in spectatorship. The round of games ended with Asante Kotoko and Karela United going top of the respective zones. 

A quintuple of home wins were recorded with Aduana's victory over Chelsea being the only away win of the round. Elmina Sharks managed a consecutive barren drawn game at home as Dreams FC lost away again to Inter Allies.

7 match venues, 17 goals netted. From these moment filled midweek games, here are somethings we observed keenly as the clubs await their next duels. 

4th Time Unlucky 
Boosted by the 3 cleansheets recorded in their first  three games, Ashantigold approached the Asante derby hoping to increase this tally. A defense marshalled by Osei Agyemang and Ibrahim Samed had until the 2 goals conceded laid down the marker for any defense partnership.8 cleansheets were recorded by the Miners in their 14 games played in the truncated 2018 league season. For the 4th time of asking,  Ashantigold SC got opened up. 

4 games on, 0 point accumulated. The Cape Coast based club have managed just 3 wins in their last 18 'League Games'. Joseph Esso got a brace to condemn his former employers to more misery. From where I sit,  Dwarfs will definitely need a Snow White to get them back to the days of old. 

Got Served? 
One club that has laughably ignored the basic teaching of most religious sects, "Love your Neighbor as Yourself" is Karela. The Passion and Pride side had made mince meat of many opponents thus far. In a game that could have seen them get some points, WAFA SC gave them a taste of the Karela Doom. A point behind WAFA SC on the current Zone B log, Karela United will definitely have to win the next game to secure a place in the next round of the competition.

Finding some Liberty 
Coach of the Dansoman based Scientific Soccer lads, Reginald Asante  looks to have settled on a consistent starting eleven. With no changes made to his last 2 team sheets, the club has couped 7 points from a possible 9. Liberty began this competition with a lost at Sogakope and what massive rejuvenation  the gaffers has brought in by naming a stringent tRam consecutively. Reginald Asante looks to have found the Liberty to soar.

3 Changes,  3 Points 
It was all merry at the Tema Stadium as Inter Allies recorded their first win of the competition. On Thursday, the manager ringed 3 changes to his weaponry as Goalkeeper Saed Salifu came in with Kuzumah Emmanuel also starting at Right Back as Daniel Amanfo also returned to action. It proved worthy!

Playing for a Name 
Relatively unknown, Collins Ameyaw has been a bit part player in his  2 year old stay with Asante Kotoko. Back from an ended loan spell, Ameyaw came on as Asante Kotoko won over Ashantigold. The 21 year old's squad jersey failed to bear his name comparatively. The midfielder will be willing to get his name enscribed on the jersey as he tries to make a mark. How consistent can he be?
