AshGold held the Academy boys to a goalless draw in Sogakope in the opening game of GPL week fourteen. It was a game many expected goals to rain since WAFA won 6-1 in the truncated season.
But AshGold had other plans.
The Miners ensured their defence was tight and they kept WAFA poster boy, Augustine Boakye at bay.
Although he was tested on a couple of occasions, AshantiGold SC Goalkeeper Robert Dabuo held his position well and made sure no ball passed the touchline.
Same can be said of WAFA goalkeeper, Sabi Acquah. He was calm and collected and ended the game with a clean sheet.
AshGold will leave Sogakope with big smiles on their faces as they did not end up as one of WAFA’s goal fest victims. They will however be unable to shake that nagging thought of not winning in their last six games at the back of their minds away.
