Glo G8 Match Day 1 [Group A Results and Statistics]

A total of 4 goals were scored as the Ghana’s flagship pre-season tournament Glo G8 was kicked off on Saturday, September 10, 2011. The two-group tournament which beauty has been marred by withdrawals of some of the most exciting eligible clubs started on a rather controversial note. New Edubiase, feeling cheated by the match official when he allowed what they thought was an offside goal threatened withdraw from the tournament.

Berekum Chelsea top Group A, having picked the maximum points with superior goal advantage over Aduana who also picked three points at the expense of Heart of Lions. Chelsea’s Nigerian import Mohammed Musa was the brightest spot on the day, netting a brace to jump to the top of the goal king race. Aduana winger Daniel Darkwa also managed to put his name on the score sheet.

Meanwhile, Group B games involving Dwarfs, Ashanti Gold, Liberty Professionals and Medeama SC will kick off on Sunday, September 11, 2011 at Sekondi. Medeama SC are early favourites, but the defensive abilities of AshantiGold SC cannot be overlooked.

Winners of each group will meet runner-ups of the of the other group in the semi final scheduled for Kumasi and Accra on September 21 and 22 respectively. The finals of the tournament will be held on Sunday September 25 in Accra.

Match Day 19 will go down as a Match Day of interesting officiating. Perhaps the six-week break will allow the Referees Association of Ghana to take a look at how their members have been faring.


LENCLAY [AshantiGold 1-0 Hearts of Oak]: Back from suspension, Sammy Adjei could not save Hearts of Oak from a determined AshantiGold. The Obuasi based club who had been reportedly deserted by their coach, David Duncan, had to rely on directions from deputy coach Camara Dini to clinch a much needed 3 points from Hearts of Oak. But Hearts fans were not happy with referee Awal Mohammed. The fans felt that AshantiGold midfielder Alhaji Sannie had passed the ball to Samson Cudjoe who was in an offside position before beating goalkeeper Sammy Adjei only for Daniel Asamoah to tap in a goal-bound ball. Adjei was later replaced by Philemon McCarthy, the third goalkeeper they had tried in 2 games.

ROBERT MENSAH, CAPE COAST [Dwarfs 1-2 Medeama SC]: Referee Mercy Tagoe Quarcoo did not have a good day at Cape Coast. She dished out one penalty too many and on one occasion appeared to have given Dwarfs a penalty just to appease the home fans. Referee Tagoe’s faults aside, it was Kotoko-reject Kabiru Imoro who shot the away team into the lead with a cheeky goal. The rest of the goals were penalties. Kwame Frimpong Pele was probably the brightest spot in the Dwarfs squad, while goalkeeper Musa Tijani was in good form for Medeamma SC. Seidu Bansi would feel he could have contributed more had he scored from the penalty and taken all the chances that fell his way.

BABAYARA, KUMASI [Kotoko 3-1 B. A. Stars]: Kotoko did not have any mercy for the relegation-bound B.A. Stars whatsoever.  The Brong Ahafo team controlled the game in the first half after Prince Atakora Gyimah scored what might go down as the fastest goal this season. Against the run of play however,  back-to-form striker Samed Oppong and central defender Awal Mohammed killed off any hopes B. A. Stars had of picking points at Baba Yara. The brightest spot of the day was Kotoko midfielder Albert Bruce.

ACCRA SPORTS STATIUM [Mighty Jets 1-0 Aduana]: Title defenders were livid with Referee Solomon Mordey for denying them what they felt was a good goal. On the day however, it was veteran Winfred Dormon whose broke the deadlock by connecting to a well taken corner kick. Aduana goalkeeper could do little about that goal.

KPANDU PARK [Heart of Lions 1-0 King Faisal]: King Faisal players and officials left Kpandu angry! Referee Zakari had disallowed a supposedly good goal they had scored. Meanwhile, they strongly felt that Heart of Lions should not have been credited with their goal as the whole circumference of the ball did not cross the goal line. But the referee saw it differently and allowed Badu Asiamah’s goal to stand.

CARL REINDORF, DANSOMAN [Liberty 2-0 Edubiase]: This was the surprise victory of the day. The talking point of the day was the performance of young defender Alfred Nelson of Liberty professionals. Nelson’s performance left critics rearranging their notes. Many had wondered why Herbert Addo will ignore the several experienced defenders in the league include the young Nelson in his squad, but the lad stepped up to the challenge against one of the best teams this season.

Glo Premier League Preview: Round 9

kotokonhearts1Round 9 promises to be a cracker. All attention will be turned to the Babayara Sports Stadium where Accra Hearts of Oak will be guests to title-holders Kumasi Asante Kotoko. It may be early season yet, but without a doubt, one of these teams will win the Glo Premier league. This match is thus, a potential title decider. Home side, Kotoko, have struggled to pick maximum points in recent games, while Hearts of Oak look like the in-shape team, but the history of the Ghanaian game has shown time and a gain, that these games do not follow the rules of form-guide.
