Match Day 27 Round Up of Ghana Premier League
Accra, The Ghana Premier League (GPL), resumed at six of the league centers after the West Africa Football Association (WAFU) 2017 tournament in Ghana, with week 27 matches.
Aduana Stars maintained their fine form and grip on top of the table after beating second placed West African Football Academy (WAFA), by a lone goal courtesy Derrick Saseraku in the 53rd minute at the Agyeman Badu stadium at Dormaa Ahenkro.
A 21st minute goal from Randolph Akwesi Ntim and a second from Stephen Amankonah in the 74th minute ensured Berekum Chelsea maintained their record of scoring at least one goal in their last four matches, as they beat a ten man Bechem United by 2:0 in the mid-week encounter.
Ebusua Dwarfs moved to 38 points after coming from a goal down from Inter Allies Alozie Chikezie in the second minute to beat the struggling Tema based team by 3:1.
A brace from Joseph Mensah and a last minute goal from Joseph Esso was all needed by the Cape Coast lads, to pile more pressure on Inter Allies, who sit just above the relegation zone with 33 points.
At the Accra Sports Stadium, Accra Great Olympics showed their superiority over newly promoted side Bolga Stars who sit at the bottom of the ongoing GPL, with just 12 points from 27 matches.
Olympics ended the first half with two goals from Kwame Boateng and Maxwell Quaye, with Ibrahim Giyasu pulling one back for the visitors before he break.
Maxwell Quaye doubled his tally for the day in the 61st minute to make it three, with Kaplaka Guantohou finishing the day for the Accra based club, with a late one from Mohamed Naeem to make the game end in 4:2 in favor of the home side.
Benjamin Tweneboa and Felix Addo’s two goals secured all three points for the travelling Elmina Sharks, who beat Tema Youth by 2:0 at the Tema Park to move to 39 points.
At the Wa park an own goal from Robin Gnagne ensured the Phobians lost to Wa All stars by 2:1.
Samudeen opened the scoring for Accra Hearts of Oak, before a Gnagne own goal cancelled out and a David Abagna last minute penalty winning the day for the former champions.
