Thomas Abbey was the star of the week 24 fixtures. The winger scored a brace to help Hearts tame their bogey side, Tema Youth.

His first came from a spot kick, his 2nd a magnificent solo effort. The game ended 3-1. Kwame Kizito scored Hearts’ other goal. Abbey’s 2 goals has increased his goal tally to 12 goals, sending him joint top with Amed Toure in the race for the Top Scorers Boot.

Amed Toure drew blank when his Bechem United lost 2-1 to Elmina Sharks. Felix Addo scored both goals for Sharks. Bechem United’s consolation came via Sadiq Abukari’s boots.

Another game that had an attacker scoring a brace was Berekum Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Bolga Allstars. Evans Obeng did hit the brace and Stephen Sarfo added the other.

Great Olympics lived by the wonder club tag to shock Inter Allies by a lone goal. Benjamin Arthur scored the only goal of the game to give Olympics hope in their relegation battle.

Wa All stars came from 2 goals down to draw at Cape Coast against Ebusua Dwarfs. Paul Asare and David Abagna made the comeback possible after the defending champions had gone down to Stephen Bentil and Isaac Kwain goals.

Veteran attacker, Papa Arko scored the only goal of the game when Liberty Professionals pipped Ashanti Gold by a lone goal.

Aduana Stars drew goalless at Medeama SC. The point earned move the Dormaa club top of the league log with a point lead over WAFA who have two games in hand.

WAFA’s game against Kotoko will be played at a later date as Kotoko continue to recover from the unfortunate accident the team suffered weeks ago.
