Medeama top as league takes break



As the Ghana Premier League takes a two week break due to Friday's general elections, Medeama overtake Aduana at the top of the league, It's still a Yahaya Mohammed story and Hearts can't catch a break.

Hearts 0-1 AshGold

Despite a red card for the visitors, Hearts of Oak were unable to stop their coach from getting his first defeat since taking over. The story dripped with irony as he was beaten by AshGold, a side he has managed to stability for year.

Hearts were also reduced to ten men, but that was long after Duncan's own protege, David Telfer was given his marching orders 24 minutes into the second half. AshGold were up 1-0 already by then.

Aaron Amoah, ex-Mighty Jets playmaker, took his ahead of a difficult away trip for the Miners at the Accra Stadium. Things slowed down for the Obuasi side when Nuru Sulley was given a straight red late on.

AshGold worked hard for the win, and Hearts were left looking inwardly, again, as another tick goes off their positives of the season.

Tema Youth 1-1 Amidaus

This was the season's first Tema Derby, and the stars of the two sides came to the fore. Francis Narh did well to get one for Tema Youth, but it was this season's revelation, Yahaya Mohammed, who got his ninth goal in ten games.

Edubiase 1-0 Liberty

One of three home wins on the day was here - the other two being at Medeama and All Stars. Liberty have been start-stop this season, occasionally brilliant and sometimes baffling in their poor form. Edubiase got the better of them in Bekwai, as they jumped to eighth, with substitute Ebenezer Ofori getting the winner ten minutes to time.

Dwarfs 0-0 Kotoko

Before this game last season, the atmosphere had been crazily anticipated. That was because Kotoko had lost only once in nine matches before playing Dwarfs - who were flying high and were even touted as championship material - in the tenth week at the time.

Cape Coast on Sunday saw an unbeaten band of reds - in nine games - but it finished goalless.

Elsewhere

Medeama went to the top of the league with a goal from Kabiru Imoro late on, as a first career hattrick for Wa All Stars' Seidu Latif ensure RTU are making a speedy exit from the league, back to Division One, at this rate.

Aduana were held in the Brong Ahafo derby of the weekend by Berekum Arsenals, while south of the venue, King Faisal saw their game against Berekum Chelsea rained off in Kumasi. It was 1-1 before it ended.

Wa All Stars 3-0 RTU, Arsenals 1-1 Aduana , Medeama 1-0 Lions, Faisal 1 - 1 Berekum Chelsea (rained off)
