GPL Match day 7 Wrap: Ashgold beaten, Hearts held, Kotoko win in style

There were contrasting fortunes for Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko in week seven of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Hearts failed to pick up three points for the second time running following a goalless stalemate with Techiman City in away fixture at the Nana Ameyaw Park.

Asante Kotoko, however, recorded their second win of the season with a 3-1 triumph over Liberty Professional at the Baba Yara Stadium. Maxwell Mensah (own goal), Dauda Mohammed and Amos Frimpong (penalty) made useless a Latif Blessing opener in Kumasi.

At the Tema Sports Stadium, Isaac Twum, Prince Baffoe, Gockel Ahortor and Ropapa Mensah found the back of the net as Inter Allies handed Bechem United a 4-0 humiliation.

Ashanti Gold’s woes continue with a 1-0 home defeat to Dreams FC at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium. Emmanuel Hayford scored for the visitors in the first half while Shafiu Mumuni squandered a penalty for the Miners.

Wafa’s winning streak at home came crushing on Sunday. Prince Antwi scored for New Edubiase to cancel out an earlier Samuel Tetteh strike as the Academy Boys were held to a 1-1 draw at the Sogakope Stadium.

Asiwome Fumador scored the only goal at the Golden City Park on 62 minutes as Berekum Chelsea recorded a 1-0 home victory over Aduana Stars.

Atta Kofi Yeboah made it three wins on the bounce for league leaders All Stars, scoring on 55 minutes to hand Enos Kwame Adipah’s side a 1-0 home triumph against Ebusua Dwarfs.

Hasaacas’ encounter with Medeama has been rescheduled for Thursday due to the latter’s Caf Confederations Cup away game with Sudanese side El Ahly Shandi on Sunday.
