thumbnail Hello,

This weekend saw only seven fixtures played out, instead of the usual eight, due to the fact that the 'super clash' between Kotoko and Hearts of Oak is scheduled for next Sunday

BEREKUM CHELSEA
2 1 NEW EDUBIASE
Berekum Chelsea jumped to the top of the league log on Saturday when they narrowly defeated New Edubiase by two goals to one.

After a goalless first half, the home side opened the scoring with Solomon Asante netting in the 50th minute.

Edubiase, however, drew level through Ebenezer Ofori, and looked to hold on for a single point, but in-form Chelsea marksman Latif Salifu came through for the blues in the 91st minute to hand them the maximum points. The goal was Salifu's 5th in seven games.


LIBERTY PROFESSIONALS
2 1 MEDEAMA
Medeama were looking to secure back their place at the top of the table at the Carl Reindorf Park on Sunday. Bashir Hayford's men wasted no time in pursuing that agenda, taking a 13th minute lead through Theophilus Anobaah.

The home side however had other plans, commendably coming from behind to upset their opponents. An equalizer by Ebenezer Asifouh in the 50th minute was followed up by a winner from red-hot Kennedy Ashia (his 5th of the season) in the 76th minute, condemning Medeama to their second consecutive defeat. The win also catapulted Liberty to 4th place.

Ash Gold
0 1 Aduana Stars
Ash Gold suffered their first ever defeat of the season at the hands of in-form Aduana Stars at the Len Clay Stadium on Sunday. A 55th minute strike by Aduana's Alex Aryee saw Ash Gold struggling to find their feet and bounce back for the remaining 35 minutes. Aduana had a player sent off in the 90th minute, but the numerical advantage came a little too l

ate for Yaw Acheampong's men, who failed to break down a compact Aduana defence during 4 minutes of time added on.


HEARTS OF LIONS 1 0 KING FAISAL
Mallam Yahaya's debut game in charge of King Faisal following the controversial dismissal of Stephen Abugri ended in defeat in Kpando, as home side Hearts of Lions came out tops with a 1-0 victory.

The game which looked to be heading for a draw, saw its decisive moment in the 72nd minute when Lions' Benjamin Fadi found the back of the net.


RTU
1 1 TEMA YOUTH
This game is arguably the weekend's most controversial match. RTU were playing home-away-from-home at the Essipong Stadium (following a home ban) and managed a 1-1 draw with Tema Youth. The visitors took the lead early on in the game through Bright Adjei, a lead which was canceled out in the 77th minute by RTU's Salim Sakara - setting the game up for a thrilling finale. RTU were by the 84th minute, reduced to 10 men following the sending off of Richard Ocran.

The home side thought they had secured all three points when Francis Narh scored in the 90th minute, a goal which was later disallowed by Referee David Kumah (after consulting with his assistants).This was moments after the goal had been called out to be fair. The goal, supposedly not given due to Narh being aided by his hand, had RTU players infuriated, as they at some point stormed off the pitch in frustration.

WA ALL STARS 1 2 EBUSUA DWARFS
Coach Mintah's Cape Coast lads traveled all the way to Wa to secure all three points against a struggling Wa All Stars. The game interestingly only came to life from the 70th minute, with Kwame Frimpong converting a spot kick for Dwarfs.

The lead lasted for only for minutes, as Seidu Salifu put the Wa boys on level pegging. The visitors struck again, this time having the final word, as Kwabena Twumasi won them the tie six minutes from the equalizer. The win meant 6th place for Dwarfs.


AMIDAUS PROF
1 0 Berekum Arsenals
Berekum Arsenals, who have had a league start in stark contrast to neighbours Chelsea, suffered their fourth defeat this campaign at the hands of new comers Amidaus Professionals at the Tema Stadium.

The only goal that separated the two sides came in the 66th minute via Selasi Adjei. The result meant Arsenals are firmly rooted at the bottom of the log without a single win.

Goal king chart

Berekum Chelsea came out of match day 7 top of the log with 14 points, followed closely by Medeama on 13, with Aduana Stars at third on 12 points. The goal king race also experienced a significant change, as for the first time in as many weeks, one player (Liberty's Kennedy Ashia) came out solely at number 1 with six goals. Berekum Chelsea's Latif Salifu follows at number 2 with 5 goals
