Bofoakwa win at home

Sunyani: At Sunyani, Bofoakwa Tano won 1-0 over visiting Tema Ghapoha in their match played at the Coronation Park when veteran Ben Kusi scored the lone goal of the match in the 16th minute.

It was a match which the homesters should have won by a wide margin but for poor shooting at goal especially by centre forward Eric Ofori Cantona.

Having squandered a number of begging chances in the early minutes of the game, Boafoakwa eventually found the net when veteran Kusi's header from a perfect corner-kick beat goalkeeper Vessou Kodjo of Ghapoha.

The visitors, who played as if there was nothing at stake, came close to scoring in the 30th minute but left-winger Korankye Richard's close-range shot, went wide.

With the score still at 1-0 in favour of Bofoakwa, Ghapoha lifted their game in the second half, however all attempts at scoring were foiled by defenders of Bofoakwa.
