Elsewhere, Elmina Sharks brought an end to Bechem United’s three game unbeaten run with a late winner at the Ndoum Park.

After a dull first half where both sides failed to create goal scoring opportunities, Tahir Musah gave the hosts the lead in the 85th minute before Bechem leveled from a penalty in the 90th minute through Moro Salifu.

With the game almost drawing to an end, the referee awarded Elmina Sharks a penalty which was protested by the Bechem United bench.

Ishmael Hammond went on to convert the penalty which secured all three points for Elmina Sharks.

At the CapeCoast Stadium, Ebusua Dwarfs had to settle for a 1-1 draw with WAFA.

Youngster Daniel Owusu opened the scoring for the visitors in 16th minute but the home side failed to respond to.

In the 51st minute, Albert Hammond restored parity for Ebusua Dwarfs through a free-kick just outside the 18 yard box.

Techiman Eleven Wonders needed a late winner to beat King Faisal at the Ohene Ameyaw Park on Sunday.

The first-half ended goalless as both teams failed to find the back of the net.

It seemed both sides were going to settle for a draw before substitute Prince Okraku found the back of the net late in added time (90+2) to hand all three points to the home side.

Eleven Wonders now sit in 12th position on the league log.

Abass Mohammed scored a brace as Medeama Sporting club handed Inter Allies their seventh defeat of the 2020/2021 season on Sunday.

Mohammed found the back of the net again in the 64th minute to give the hosts a 2 goal advantage.

Inter Allies kept pushing for a goal and eventually found it in the 70th minute through Nafiu Suleman but it was not enough to get the visitors back into the game.

In the last game of Sunday’s action, Aduana Stars recorded a 1-0 win over Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The first half ended goalless with both sides failing to put the ball at the back of the net.

Samuel Bio broke the deadlock to put the visitors in the lead in the 73rd minute with a sweet strike.

Bio’s goal would be enough as Kotoko were not able to find an equaliser.

The defeat means Kotoko missed the chance to climb to the summit of the Ghana Premier League table and drop to fifth place while Aduana move up to fourth.

In Saturday’s games,

Berekum Chelsea and Hearts of Oak played out a goalless draw at the Golden City Park.

The miners in the 7th minute went ahead through Yaw Annor but Nasiru Moro equalized for Legon Cities in the 11th minute.

AshGold once again took the lead through Yaw Annor in the 32nd minute.

It seemed the first-half was going to end in the visitors favour, however, Jonah Attuquaye had other plans as he put the hosts back on level terms.

Baba Mahama put Legon Cities in the lead for the first time in the game just four minutes after the break before David Cudjoe extended their lead with two goals in the 55th and 62nd minute.
