New Edubiase 1 - 0 Berekum Arsenals

The Bekwai-based New Edubiase recorded their second consecutive 1-0 win in two weeks, beating second from bottom club Berekum Arsenals.

Ebusua Dwarfs 2 - 0 Aduana Stars

Coach JK Mintah's Abontoa Bontoa boys won their first game in five attempts on Saturday, beating visitors and title contenders Aduana Stars. A strike in either half from Richard Ghansi and John Arthur made sure of a convincing win to get their season back on 26 points, four points off the top of the table. Aduana Stars missed out on a chance to add to their 27-point tally, and a shot at displacing the league leaders.

Berekum Chelsea 0 - 0 Ashgold

It was a stalemate at the Berekum Golden City Park on Sunday as Berekum Chelsea's lukewarm form of late persisted. Ashgold had in the dugout new coach Bashir Hayford, who left top of the table club Medeama high and dry to replace Yaw Acheampong. Highlights of the game included spectacular goal keeping displays from Fatau Dauda in the Ashgold post and Abubakar Iddrisu on the opposite side. Malik Akowuah was red carded after two yellow cards. It was Chelsea's first game since selling duo Richard Kissi-Boateng and Solomon Asante to Congolese giants TP Mazembe. The Blues, who only weeks ago were top of the table, have since slumped to fifth, and have struggled to win games since their famous 2-0 home win against Asante Kotoko.

Wa All Stars 1-0 Heart of Lions

A well worked 13th minute goal from former Hearts player Prince Attakora Gyimah secured all the maximum points for an impressive Wa All Stars side at home in Wa against eighth placed Kpando Heart of Lions. The goal emerged from a delightful passing move which was finished off expertly, fetching the Wa-based club three more points to the 15 points already accumulated.

Tema Youth 4-0 Medeama

Arguably the surprise result of the week, Tema Youth thrashed league leaders Medeama by four goals to nil in Tema. Medeama, led by new coach Shaibu Tanko (former assistant to former manager Bashir Hayford) for the first time, were left shell shocked as Francis Narh (double) Bright Adjei and Mohamed Abass found the back of the net to bring the leaders to their knees - and in the process confirming popular belief that they (Medeama) were lucky to have narrowly beaten the Tema boys back in Tarkwa weeks ago. Francis Narh, Tema Youth's talismanic attacker, by his brace, moved his tally up to eight goals, only three strikes behind the current leading top scorer Yahaya Mohammed. Despite the result, Medeama still remain three points clear on top of the log, and will be looking to get their act together next week as they host a resurgent Hearts on points-hauling agenda.
