Bechem United 1-1 Karela United: Augustine Okrah’s goal reduces Kotoko’s lead at the top to seven


The midfielder left it late to snatch a point for the Hunters from a losing position

Bechem United shared the spoils 1-1 with Karela United in the last game of matchday 26 of Ghana Premier League at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park in Bechem on Monday.

After losing in a bizarre manner last week against Eleven Wonders in the Bono Ahafo derby, Bechem were hoping to return to winning ways

After an end to end action in the first half where chances were at the premium, the game came to its expectation after the break.

Umar Bashiru benefited from Osei Kuffour’s mistake at the back to open the scoring by 52nd minute and shut the vociferous home fans.

Francis Twene combined with Hafiz Konkoni to set up Okrah but his shot was blocked.

However, Okrah got lucky and scored a wonderful equalizer for Bechem by the 79th minute.

Bechem now have 45 points as they have reduced the lead by Kotoko (52) to seven points. Bechem will travel to Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi to face King Faisal next weekend while Kotoko travel to Sogakope to lock horns with WAFA.
