The Porcupine Warriors left it late but were able to secure a victory after suffering from two defeats on a row
Asante Kotoko dashed Ebusua Dwarfs’ hope of recording their first point of the season after defeating them 2-0 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Two second half goals from substitutes Mathew Anim Cudjoe and Richard Arthur stole the day for underfire coach Maxwell Konadu despite Songne Yacouba missing a penalty in the first half.
In Dansoman, Hearts of Oak came from a goal down to defeat Liberty Professionals 2-1 with goals from Bernard Arthur and Kofi Kordzi, while Dreams FC ended Medeama’s unbeaten run with a 1-0 win in Dawu.
In Dormaa Ahenkro, Yahaya Mohammed’s sixth goal of the season coupled with a Noah Martey’s strike gave Aduana Stars a 2-0 win over Legon Cities FC while King Faisal picked their first away point in a 1-1 draw with Karela United in Tarkwa.
Berekum Chelsea continued their giant slaying as they picked their third away win on the bounce when they pipped Ashanti Gold 1-0 at the Len Clay Sports Stadium in Obuasi on Saturday. It was a Kofi Owusu’s strike that did the magic for the Bono side.
