Ghana: OLY Secure Difficult Win Over Bechem United … As Betpawa Ghana Premier League Takes Off


Wonder Club , Accra Great Olympics laboured to defeat Bechem United 1-O to begin their 2022/23 betPawa Ghana Premier League on a positive note.

Substitute Samuel Ashie Quaye fetched the only goal of the match on the 82nd minute mark to hand Olympics the three points and second defeat of Bechem United in a fortnight.

Both sides clashed in the final of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) G-6 pre-season tournament in which Olympics triumphed 2-0 over their bogey side.

It appears Olympics has found an antidote for Bechem’s stranglehold as recent clashes between them have seen the ‘Dade’ boys record some positive results.

But it was not an easy ride for the AGOSU lads, draped beautifully in their new blue-and-white kits as Bechem took control of the game from the blast of the referee’s whistle.

The visitors, marshaled by enterprising midfielder Abdul Latif Anabila, Francis Twene, Clinton Duodu, Hafiz Konkoni and Seth Kwadwo kept the first 10 minutes of the game in the Oly area; restricting the home team to just two attempted counter-attacks which fell in Bechem’s offside traps.

Within that period, Bechem had the best chance of the day which fell to Avornyo, whose attempted lob over Benjamin Asare in goal for the host, climbed over the bar.

Aaron Essel followed up with a crisp shot across the Oly goal area with no attacker to connect.
