WAFA SC survived a spirited comeback attempt to top Aduana FC 3-2 at their favourite Sogakope Arena on match-day 30 of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League Wednesday afternoon.
Wolfsberger-bound midfielder Augustine Boakye shot WAFA ahead as early as the 6th minute after feeding on a pass from Godwin Agbevor.
In the 20th minute, Enoch Asubonteng emerged with a nice setup of Justus Torsutsey who bagged his 6th goal of the campaign.
Another assist came through Agbevor in the 37th minute, this time setting up Togolese full-back Youssifou Atte to give the hosts a healthy lead.
In-form winger Sam Adams managed to pull a goal back for Aduana in the 42nd minute.
Trailing 3-1, Aduana coach Joseph Asare quickly varied his tactics by pulling midfielder Prince Acquah out and introducing the experienced Tijani Joshua even before the halftime break.
The Fire Boys showed some signs of improvement thereafter as the momentum swing favoured them for most parts of the second half but struggled to make goals.
The hosts found themselves under pressure as midfielder Flavio Kongoza further reduced the deficit in the 80th minute.
With a concerted and disciplined effort, WAFA held on through the final 10 minutes of regulation and stoppage times and secured three vital points.
The Academy Boys now are now on 46 points while Aduana remain 8th on the log three points less after 30 matches.
