Liberty end AshGold unbeaten run as Kotoko, Hearts close gap at top

AshGold’s coach CK Akunnor had expressed fears going into Wednesday’s game

Elvis Kyei Baffour’s strike for Liberty Professionals on Wednesday broke the invincibility of Ghana Premier League leaders Ashanti Gold SC.

The Miners had been unbeaten going into Match Day 6 with the Dansoman-based boys, who had picked their only win this season just three days ago over Techiman Eleven Wonders, coincidentally in Obuasi, home of AshGold.

Coach Charles Akunnor, a former captain of the Black Stars, had expressed fears of the threat Liberty posed prior to the encounter.

Baffour finished a quick counter-attack for the Scientific Soccer lads in the second half of the game, lifting them from the drop zone for the first time this season.

The Miners, however, still stay top with 13 points while Medeama SC, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko follow in that order on 10 points each.

The Mauve and Yellows went to Sogakope to break WAFA SC’s home jinx by 2-1 while Hearts inflicted a 3-1 defeat on fellow former champions Wa All Stars.

Kotoko beat Ebusua Dwarfs by 2-1 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
