GPL Week 11 Review: Hearts, WAFA win as Kotoko stumble at home

Published on: 10 April 2017




WAFA continued their sensational form in the Premier League with a third successive away win at Elmina Sharks to open a four-point lead on the top of the Premier League table.

Star man, Daniel Lomotey hit a brace for WAFA in another remarkable away win, which also stretches their winning run to five matches. Lomotey’s brace gave WAFA a comfortable 2:0 lead at the Nduom Sports Complex, before Samuel Arthur scored a late consolation goal for WAFA.

With Aduana’s match against Olympics being rescheduled to Monday due to rains and Asante Kotoko dropping home points, WAFA have now opened a four-point gap at the top.

In Kumasi, Asante Kotoko’s winless run has now stretched to four matches after yet another frustrating goalless home draw against Ebusua Dwarfs in Kumasi.

Kotoko remain in second place with one point advantage, but have played two more games than third-placed Aduana Stars.

Bechem United maintained their 4th position on the table with a 1:0 win over Inter Allies in Bechem. Nana Antwi Manu scored for Bechem late in the game to give them all the three points.

In Obuasi on Saturday, Hearts of Oak deepened the woes of Ashantigold by beating them 1:0, with Paul Acquah scoring the only goal of the match.

In Berekum, Chelsea defeated Medeama 2:0 with Stephen Sarfo scoring a brace for the home side, while Bolga All Stars and Liberty Professionals settled for a 1:1 draw in Tamale. Noah Neequaye scored for Bolga All Stars before Bernard Arthur equalised for Liberty Professionals.

The games between Tema Youth and Wa All Stars in Tema, as well as the Great Olympics and Aduana Stars have been rescheduled for Monday due to heavy rains.
