Ashantigold moved top of the Ghana Premier League after pipping Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Miners came from behind to beat Great Olympics 2-1 with the win moving them to the top of the Ghana Premier League.

Gladson Awako fired home side in front inside 14 minutes before Ashantigold found the equalizer through Amos Addai on the stroke of half time and Yaw Annor scoring the winner just two minutes into the second half to pick up the away win.

In Dawu, Precious Boah’s double gave Dreams FC a first win in 6 games after he scored twice late in the game to give Dreams a 2-0 win over Ebusua Dwarfs and only their second win of the season.

Berekum Chelsea secured a narrow 1-0 win over visiting Inter Allies at the Berekum Golden City Park.

Paul Atta Agyei’s 12th minute goal proved to be enough for Chelsea who secured a second win of the campaign.

Bechem United and King Faisal shared the spoils with Moro Salifu’s 45th minute opener being cancelled out by Kwame Peprah’s 48th minute strike.

In Techiman, Eleven Wonders asserted their dominance over Karela United with a thumping 3-1 victory.

Mohammed Tetteh Nortey shot Ignatius Osei Fosu’s men in front in the 25th minute but Diawisie Taylor levelled for Karela in the 75th minute with his 6th goal in just 8 games this season.

However, two late goals from Nana Kobina Osoh and George Amponsah sealed the win for Wonders, who remain unbeaten in 3 games against Karela in the Premier League.
