GPL Wrap: All Stars suffer first defeat, Kotoko keep climbing

League leaders Wa All Stars suffered their first defeat in 8 games of the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League to Bechem United on Wednesday.

Two goals from Abednego Tetteh ensured Bechem secured all three points while midfielder Atta Kofi Yeboah could only find a consolation for All Stars. 2-1 it ended.

Wa All Stars thus have their lead on the league table cut to two points as Hearts of Oak gained a point in their game in Accra.

WAFA SC’s rehearsed plan to salvage at least a point against the Phobians worked as they headed into the lead after 34 minutes through Charles Boateng. Hearts hard to work their way back with Cosmos Dauda scoring the equalizer in the 69th minute.

Asante Kotoko finally broke their away hoodoo this season as they managed to beat Dreams FC at the Dawu Park. Dauda Mohammed scored under one minute and that was enough to hand the porcupine warriors a first win in four attempts on the road. Kotoko’s two wins in succession now has seen the record leagie winners rise from the bottom of the table to 7th position.

Striker Yahaya Mohammed moved his goal tally to four with a hat trick as Aduana Stars thrashed Sekondi Hasaacas at the Dormaa Park. Bright Adjei completed the 4-goal mauling.

At the Robert Mensah Stadium, Ebusua Dwarfs overpowered Techiman City by a 2-1 margin. Romeo Agban and Nicholas Gyan scored for the Cape Coast side while Ebenezer Agyapong grabbed the only goal for City.

Liberty Professionals returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Berekum Chelsea in Dansoman. Asiwome Fumador stunned the hosts with the opener before Latif Blessing scored two goals in sucession to overturn the tide. Midfielder Bernard Arthur then scored the third to hand Liberty a comfortable 3-1 victory.

Struggling champions AshantiGold came out victors in the Adansi derby on Wednesday. The Miners beat rivals New Edubiase United 2-1 with goals from Francis Adjei and Anthony Yerful. Abdul Wahab Annan scored for Edubiase.
