Matchday 19 wrap: Tema Youth save Wafa's blushes

Comments()
The Academy Boys still keep hold of the top spot thanks to the Harbour City Boys who denied closest contenders Aduana Stars three points

Leaders Wafa failed to pick maximum points but are still lucky enough to hold on to the first spot as the Ghana Premier League entered matchday 19 this weekend.

The Academy Boys were held to a goalless draw away by bottom-placed Bolga All Stars, but with second-placed Aduana Stars falling 1-0 at Tema Youth, Klavs Rasmussen's charges can afford to breathe a sigh of relief.

Theophilous Ogoe's penalty condemned the Ogya Boys to their third defeat of the season. The top two are now separated by three points.

Hearts of Oak are now just a point below Aduana following their 2-0 victory over Elmina Sharks at the Nduom Sports Stadium. Captain Thomas Abbey scored once again while Kwame Kizito added the second goal.

Asante Kotoko's 2-1 win over reigning champions Wa All Stars in Saturday's only game has moved them to fourth on the table. Obed Owusu and Yakubu Mohammed were on target for the Porcupine Warriors while Kwaku Assuandzie Baffour got the Northern Blues' only goal.

Ebusua Dwarfs, on the other hand, have fallen by a place to the fifth position following their 1-1 draw at Berekum Chelsea, who sit sixth on the log. Nicholas Gyan restored parity for the Blues after Stephen Sarfo gave the home side the lead.

It is now one win in five games for Bechem United, who were held to a 1-1 stalemate at home by Medeama. Latif Salifu scored to deny the Hunters all three points after Amed Toure opened the scoring.

In an obviously very challenging season, Liberty Professionals have managed to claim their fifth win of the season following a 1-0 away triumph over Great Olympics. Michael Ampadu's goal made the difference.

It was indeed a big win, by their own season standard, as Ashanti Gold thrashed Inter Allies 3-0 at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium. Hans Kwoffie netted twice, with Daniel Gozah grabbing the other goal for the Miners, who sit just one place above the relegation zone.
