VIDEO: Medeama top Bechem, boost bid for maiden GPL title

Medeama SC kept their hopes for a maiden Ghana Premier League (GPL) title alive with a 2-1 win over fellow challengers Bechem United Monday afternoon.

The encounter at Akoon Community Park in Tarkwa was one of the final two fixtures for match-day 30 of the 2022/23 league campaign.

Striker Jonathan Sowah registered the opening goal by smashing a sweet volley from close range in the 19th minute after teammate Derrick Fordjour’s dribble effort got blocked and the ball redirected to his way by a Bechem defender. Watch goal:

Then defender Vincent Atingah scored in the 33rd minute to make it 2-0 with his tenth goal of the campaign. The towering centre-back initially beat goalkeeper Aziz Dari to the ball with a header from a corner before having to prod home the rebound the second time after the ball was not properly cleared to safety.

Bechem got their consolation goal in the 78th minute through a Francis Acquah strike after some neat passing sequence from the back. Watch goal:

The three points lifts Medeama SC above Bechem United into second place in the GPL standings. The Yellow and Mauves now have 50 points from 30 games, just two behind leaders Aduana FC who were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Karela United in the other Monday afternoon fixture.

Bechem United, meanwhile, drop to third with 48 points.
