Three minutes later, Medeama had a chance to equalize but striker, Prince Opoku Agyemang decided to go for glory than to pass to Zakaria Mumuni who was free and umlnmarked in the box as his tame effort was saved by goalkeeper Benjamin Asare.

Amed Toure had a great chance to in the second half but his powerful strike was saved by the short stopper.

The game finished 1 – 0 to the Blue and Whites team who move top of the Ghana Premier League table with 33 points from 18 games.
