GPL Week 9 Review

Kotoko v EdubiaseAs the clock ticks faster, so does the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League.

The season is already 9 matches old, and the real results are beginning to present themselves as teams reach their peak.

Asante Kotoko succumbed to their fourth defeat of the season to open healing wounds in post-Coach Duncan era.

New Edubiase United ended their resurgence — winning the game by a solitary goal courtesy of Prince Antwi.

 Ashgold v Hearts of OakThe top fixture of the match-day nine encounters was in Obuasi between Ashanti Gold and Hearts of Oak. The two men at the dugout of both sides were under pressure for different reasons — Bashir Hayford for poor results, while Kenichi for alleged altercation with his employers.

The off-pitch issues were buried for the turf to take over, and the game served spectators at the venue worth their money.

Evans MensahHaving gone four games without a win Hearts of Oak ended their winless streak with a hard fought 2-1 win over Ashantigold in Obuasi. Forward Cosmos Dauda scored a brace as Hearts of Oak ended their 9 year wait for a win at the Len Clay Stadium.

Aduana’s Seth Opare Confident Of Victory Over KotokoAduana Stars enjoyed back to back wins for the first time in the league as they
recorded a resounding 3-0 victory over Medeama. Yahaya Mohammed scored twice, one in each half before Elvis Opoku hit the final nail on the coffin of Medeama.

Liberty-Professionals-640x400Liberty Professionals won their first game of the season after a Bernard Arthur strike on the 90th minute condemned Hasaacas to a second successive defeat. Hasaacas had all the chances to give Liberty a mountain to climb, but fluffed their lines and the Scientific Soccer lads punished them for their profligacy.
