2021/22 GPL: Asante Kotoko beat Hearts of Oak, Ashanti Gold thrash WAFA – Match week 24 review

Asante Kotoko strengthened their lead at the top of the Ghana Premier League table with a 1-0 win over arch-rivals Hearts of Oak in their match week 24 encounter at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday.

Franck Mbella Etouga scored from the spot inside 13 minutes after Fabio Gama was fouled in the box by Hearts midfielder Nurudeen Aziz.

He stepped up to take the kick as he sent goalkeeper Richmond Ayi the wrong way, taking his season tally to 16 goals.

Kotoko lead the league table with 52 points after 24 matches with Bechem United at the second spot with 44 points, while Hearts of Oak drop to 6th on the league table with 36 points.

Elsewhere, Dreams FC shared the spoils with Eleven Wonders in a 1-1 stalemate at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu. The Still Believe opened the scoring through Ibrahim Abdulai in the 64th minute but Wonders equalised courtesy of Ibrahim Laar’s strike on the 79th minute of the game.

Early on Saturday, Ashanti Gold thrashed WAFA 6-0 at the Len Clay stadium. Yaw Annor scored a hat-trick to propel the Miners at home. The goal fest began as early as the 13th minute when Annor got on the end of a lovey move to slot home.

The winger added to the tally one minute later as the Miners took the game to their opponents. Aminu Adams netted the third goal inside 36 minutes before Henry Oware’s own goal in the 39th muddied the waters for the visitors.

Eric Esso smashed home the 5th goal in the 48th minute before Yaw Annor rounded things up to get his hat-trick – nine minutes from time.
