Black Stars-bound Augustine Okrah wins Man of the Match as Bechem snatch a point against RTU


The winger was adjudged the best performer as the Hunters picked one point in Tamale in mid-week

Augustine Okrah was adjudged the Man of the Match as he inspired Bechem United to pick one point as they shared the spoils 2-2 with Real Tamale United on matchday 29 of Ghana Premier League at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

After putting up an incredible performance over the weekend to help Bechem reach the final of the Fa Cup, Okrah was at his best once again in the Premier League.

Emmanuel Owusu gave Bechem the lead in the game after 21 minutes following a poor defending by RTU.

However, Ronald Frimpong pulled even for the hosts on 32nd minute against the run of play after Okrah nearly doubled Bechem’s lead at the other end few minutes before.

After the break, RTU went ahead through Issah Kuka. The youngster connected a pass from his teammate and perfectly slotted it in beyond the reach of goalkeeper Abdulai Iddrisu.

Interestingly, Bechem broke the hearts of the home fans with a late equalizer deep in additional time. Okrah picked up a pass and sent in a powerful shot which was spilled by the goalkeeper.

Hafiz Konkoni was at the right place at the time and calmly tapped in the rebound.

Bechem are still second on the log with 48 points, eight points behind Asante Kotoko who have a game in hand against Ashanti Gold at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Thursday.

Okrah now boasts of 13 league goals and six assists as well as six Man of the Match awards after 29 games.
