Exclusive: The Miners forward won the top-flight's topscorer's award following his latest haul against newly-crowned champions

Ashanti Gold striker Hans Kwofie was the man of the moment at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Ghana Premier League final day as they thrashed champions Aduana Stars 4-2 to survive relegation on Sunday.

The 28-year-old scored four times to surpass Berekum Chelsea's star Stephen Sarfo, who shot blank against Tema Youth, as he was leading the chart with 15 goals before kickoff.

Derrick Sasraku and Elvis Opoku got the consolation goals for Aduana.

"I'm over the moon. I'm really impressed with my performance and I thank everyone who made this dream a reality," Kwofie told Goal .

"I knew I had to be efficient upfront ahead of the game because relegation was staring at our faces and the goal king challenge was also there to achieve. I deserve this award because I've been scoring goals in crucial games and this is not the first time I've scored a hat-trick or haul in a single game this season.

"I congratulate the other strikers because they gave out their all but in the end, only one person has to be the winner. My teammates, technical team, management and supporters have been superb and I'm grateful," he added.

Kwofie, who scored a hat-trick against Great Olympics as well as another haul against Berekum Chelsea, succeeds former Liberty Professionals forward Latif Blessing, who also netted 17 goals to win the award last season.
