Hearts of Oak capped a 2-1 away win at AshantiGold to bring some happiness to their fold after a stressful week.
The Phobians were involved in some off-the-field drama as their head coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi walked out of a management meeting on Thursday.
The incident led to several rumours stating that Yatsuhashi’s departure from the team was imminent but the management kept him in charge and he duly guided the team to their second away win of the season. Forward Cosmos Dauda grabbed two goals in the second half with Nafiu Awudu scoring what became the consolation for the home team.
The result moved Hearts up to 18 points while AshGold are 10th on 10 points. League leaders Wa All Stars got a 2-0 home win over Inter Allies at the Wa Park. Emmanuel Ocran and Richard Arthur got the goals for All Stars to keep them at the top of the table with 20 points. Inter Allies are 14th with 8 points.
Saddick Adams got two goals as Berekum Chelsea beat Dreams FC 3-0 at the Golden City Park. The other goal was scored by Seth Appiah and the home team now has 16 points and is 4th on the table.
Dreams are now 7th on the log with 14 points. WAFA beat Ebusua Dwarfs 2-0 at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope. Charles Boateng and Tanko Ibrahim were on target for WAFA who move up to 5th on 14 points.
Dwarfs are 15th with 9 points. A brace from Yahaya Mohammed and a strike from Elvis Opoku helped Aduana Stars beat Medeama 3-0 at the Dormaa Park.
