Nsoatreman 2-0 Bechem: Maxwell Konadu starts new era with derby victory


There were joy and merry making as Nsoatreman finally picked their first ever win over their regional rivals

Nsoatreman defeated Bechem United 2-0 on opening day of Ghana Premier League in Nsoatre on Sunday.

New coach Maxwell Konadu joined the hosts ahead of the start of the season and had only one target prior to the game; a win and convincing one of course.

New signing Abdul Manaf Umar who joined Nsoatreman from Real Tamale United snatched the first goal for Nsoatreman with a wonderful goal.

Umar dribbled past two defenders before sending his effort into the top right corner by the 28th minute.

After the break, Nsoatreman fluffed several opportunities to double their lead and that gave Bechem the confidence to try warm themselves into the game.

Although, Bechem were pushing for an equalizer, Nsoatreman made it 2-0 on the stroke of full time from the penalty spot.

Eric Osei Bonsu converted from the spot after the hosts were awarded a penalty and he sent the visitors’ goalkeeper to the wrong direction.

Augustine Okrah had a chance to at least score a consolation goal for Bechem after coming from the bench but he failed to make his effort count.
