High flying King Faisal were also held away while Dreams FC hammered Karela United to continue fine form.

Below is the full wrap up of the games:

Gladson Awako finally marked his debut for Accra Hearts of Oak with a goal. Hearts of Oak were hosted by Elmina Sharks at the Ndoum Sports Complex. 

After a barren first half, Awako was thrown onto the pitch and made an instant impact for the club.

At the Len Clay Stadium, Aduana Stars suffered a 1-0 defeat to Ashanti Gold SC to end their fine start.

WAFA’s poor start of the campaign continued as they got to beat the third time in a row in a 2-0 defeat against Berekum Chelsea with Kofi Owusu’s brace doing the damage.
