Goal Ghana
The title holders frustrated the Fire Club at home for the second time in two seasons as Bright Adjei missed a penalty in additional time

Aduana Stars shared the spoils goalless with Wa All Stars in Ghana Premier League matchday nine outstanding game at the Nana Agyeman Badu Park in Dormaa Ahenkro on Thursday.

The game which was expected to take place last month could not come up due to the visitors’ participation in the Wafu tournament in Senegal, where they placed third, with Ivorian champions AS Tanda lifting the trophy.

Aduana started the game on a bright note, as Richard Mpong combined with Bright Adjei to create space for Derrick Sasraku but the latter shot wide by the 16th minute.

Five minutes later, All Stars striker Paul Asare D'Vries was played through by Seth Amoateng but his shot was thwarted by Stephen Anokye Badu.

Sasraku was handed another opportunity to open the scoring but he was heckled on 26th minute by Nana Addai Duku, who saw the first caution of the day, before goalkeeper Rashid Seidu received another yellow seven minutes later for time wasting.  

After the break, Aduana continued to search for the opener but efforts from Mpong, Noah Martey and Sasraku were thwarted by the visitors’ goalkeeper Seidu.

David Abangna fired over the post on 65th minute, intended to conclude a beautiful counterattack from the visitors.

Deep in additional time, Aduana were awarded the perfect opportunity to win the day when Adjei was brought down in the visitors' box, with referee Prince Amoah pointing to the spot.
