Sat, Oct


  • Barring any unexpected pronouncements from the FA Disciplinary Committee, or any other quarters, GN Bank Division One, Zone One side, Dreams FC have, this afternoon, qualified to play in the nation’s elite soccer division come next season following their 3-0 home rout of Okwahu United.

  • Action in the nation’s second tier league – GN Bank Division One League – continued this past weekend in zone 1 and 2 with Week 26 though not completely in the books yielding very fruitful results for a couple of teams as the impressive Cape Coast based Elmina Sharks drew closer to the cusp of being the first team to qualify for the Premier Division next season as they extended their lead to 9points over their closest pursuers and look very likely to wrap up the division title within the next week or two with a couple of games to spare. Real Tamale United also took over the top spot in zone one for the first time this season over the game in hand leaders - Mighty Royals – to keep the pressure on the latter and also set the stage for a likely photo finish given the inability of all the top four teams to win on the road.

    In zone one, hitherto fourth placed Real Tamale United kept their hopes of qualifying to the Premier Division alive as they vaulted to the summit in zone one over the idle Mighty Royals who will likely play on Monday following their 2-0 home win over bottom Unity FC and the collapse on the road of the two teams ahead of them. They will at worse drop to the second spot should the Royals win against bottommost Bawku Utd. Bofoakwa Tano failed to take advantage of their recent luck and the momentum thrown their way by the recent FA decision against Berekum United that leapfrogged them to the second spot as they fell flat on the road, succumbing to a lone goal defeat at the hands of Wa Rockets who vacated the first relegation spot for the 12th spot with the win as they look to shore themselves from the brewing relegation brouhaha. And as expected Bolga Stars failed to break the yoke against FC Tanga on the road as they went down by 2 goals to nothing to leave their quest of making a move for the top spot this weekend unfulfilled.

    Berekum Arsenals got some of their mojo back following the recent FA Disciplinary Committee decisions against them that has so far cost them a whopping 6points with a hard fought 5-4 advantage over the visiting Mpuasuman outfit in their entertaining and thrilling 9 goal fest to narrow the gap for the top spot, and B. A. United with a game in hand ended their recent 3 game skid with a miserable lone goal win over Tamale Utrecht.

    Elsewhere on the weekend, Berlin FC stumbled at home to a lone goal loss against the once relegation threatened Guan FC who have now managed to string together 3 straight wins to improve to the 11th spot on 32points with the relegation brouhaha seemingly well behind them, and relegation candidates, Liberty Babes, failed to help their survival cause at home in spite of  their recent three straight game winning spree as they tanked to a 2-1 loss against the visiting Steadfast unit who improved to mid-table with the win.



    In zone two, imposing runaway leaders Elmina Sharks, left nothing to chance as they trounced the visiting relegation engulfed Starke FC by three goals to nothing to up their tally to 59points, extend their lead to 9points and move closer to the cusp of wrapping up qualification to the tier-one division with 4 games to the end of the season. The surge and remarkable output from Karela FC this second half of the season may have finally proved too daunting of a task as the once relegation threatened King Faisal humbled them with a 2-0 loss to leave any chance and mathematical combination of them catching up or overtaking the Sharks for the summit virtually over and nothing more than a dream as they fell behind by a colossal 9points with the loss. And Gold Stars finally made some headway, unlikely as it seems towards regaining the second spot as they drew 6points closer to it following their 2-0 home win over Wassaman Utd.

    Sekondi Eleven Wise’ hopes of ending the season on high note continue to be a struggle as they extended their non-winning run to three in as many outings following their goalless tie against the visiting Dunkwa Utd but they once again held on to the fourth spot as those behind and capable of overtaking them all lost. Asokwa Deportivo hopes of making it into the top four this past weekend were dashed on the road at the hands of the one-time bottommost club – Venomous Vipers who seem to have rediscovered their potency and form as they handed the former a 4-1 thumping for a third straight win in their last three appearances and a lift to the 11th spot 31points though they still have some work to do as far as the relegation drama is concerned.

    Elsewhere on the weekend, Achiken added to the relegation woes of Tarkwa Utd who now have the keys to the cellar with a 2-1 home win, Proud United compounded Cornerstone’s relegation headache with a lone goal win that left the latter tied on 30points for the first relegation spot with 3 other clubs and Nzema Kotoko dropped mid-tablers – Samartex FC – by a lone goal push their agenda for a top four finish alive and well.

    With the top prize and ticket to the premiership already wrapped up by Elmina Sharks, GN Bank Division One League zone two matches came on as scheduled with the jockeying for position and the quest to avoid relegation taking center stage as the bottom teams continue the fight to avoid joining relegation bound Tarkwa Utd.

    At the Nduom Sports Stadium in Cape Coast, division winners Elmina Sharks were formally declared winners and awarded a trophy, a plaque and medals for all the players and members of the technical team at a brief coronation ceremony by the Division One League Board after playing to a 1-1 tie against Nzema Kotoko. The Sharks will be putting in their first appearance in the premiership and may join rivals – Ebusua Dwarfs – as the 2 clubs from the central region should the latter survive relegation.

    Division runner-ups Karela FC maintained their stellar home record with a lone goal win over visiting Proud Utd to leave the latter stuck on 36points, just 2 adrift of the first relegation spot needing to win their last match of the season to secure their stay in the division. Third placed Bibiani Gold Stars and one time drop zone dwellers – King Faisal FC – played out to nine-goal thriller with the former losing by four goals to five at home and king Faisal well on their way to sealing their stay in division one soccer.

    Elsewhere on the weekend, relegation threatened Cornerstones won by 2 goals to nothing over Dunkwa Utd to move up to the 13th spot, two adrift of the first relegation spot and will have to win once more to improve upon their chances of survival. Starke FC won by two goals to one at home over Achiken to improve their odds of surviving the drop zone but like Corners they will have to win their next game, and Venomous Vipers dug themselves a deep hole in the relegation mire as they lost by a lone goal in a closely contested game against Wassaman Utd who moved completely out of the relegation brouhaha with the win. With the loss, Vipers dropped to the first relegation spot on 34 points and will have to win their last game whilst hoping that the teams above them drop the maximum points in their final games for them to have a shot at survival.

    The results of the match between Tarkwa Utd and Samartex, Deportivo and Eleven Wise were not available at the time of this post.

    Week 27 games of the GN Bank Division One – zone three - league came on as scheduled this weekend with the already tight race for the Division title getting a tad tighter as the points differential dropped to one at the top end of things. On the bottom end, King Solomon FC and Roberto FC for all intent and purposes confirmed their relegation to the abyss of Division two soccer with three games to the end of the season.

    Premier League hopefuls and zone 3 leaders - Accra Gt. Olympics - saw their bid stonewalled in their must win or at worse play for a tie game as they emerged on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller (2-3) against relegation threatened Amidaus Professionals who remain in the hole but boosted their survival chances. With the loss, Olympics saw their 2point lead drop to one as Heart of Lions played it safe on the road, salvaging a point against SP Mirren to hold on to the second spot and draw a point closer to the top spot. Not to be outdone, third placed Okyeman Planners played it safe on the road in a 1-1 tie against relegation engulfed Nania FC who needed the maximum three points badly to increase their odds of avoiding relegation.

    Fourth placed Vision FC’s quest for a top four finish remained intact despite falling by two goals to nothing at Mighty Jets who moved to mid-table with the win to distance themselves from the relegation brouhaha encircling the last 6 teams on the table. The struggles continued for Danbort FC as they extended their non-winning run to 5 straight games against the visiting Tema Youth with a 1-1 tie.

    Elsewhere on the weekend, MTN FA Cup finalists - Okwawu Utd - extended their non-winning run to four straight games as they played to a goalless tie at home against the visiting Kotoku Royals. Pure Joy improved their survival chances with a 2-0 home win over the now relegation bound King Solomon, and Roberto FC sealed their exit from Division One soccer following their 3-0 trouncing at the hands of Istanbul FC who improved to the 6th spot with the win.

    With three games to the end of the GN Bank Division One – Zone three – league, the chase to the elite division still remains too close to call with Gt. Olympics holding a point advantage over fellow division title hopefuls – Heart of Lions and Okyeman Planners, and for this weekend it looks like the positioning will remain the same as the three teams revert to their favorite home turfs with leaders Gt. Olympics hosting Sporting Mirren in a must win match as they look to rebound from this past weekend’s 2-3 loss at Amidaus.


    GN Bank Division One League – Zone 3 – Week 28 games came on as scheduled without any major changes in the standings as all the top three teams won as expected to leave the standings the way it was at the beginning of the match day.

    Accra Gt. Olympics rebounded remarkably well from their week 27 loss at Amidaus with a 4-0 thumping of visiting Sporting Mirren to hold on to the top spot and their one point advantage over the pursuing Heart of Lions who improved their unbeaten run to 5 games (4 wins and a tie) after defeating Mighty Jets at home by 2 goals to nothing. Not to be outdone in the winning column on the day, Newbies Okyeman Planners taught their seniors in the division – 2015/16 MTN FA Cup finalists Okwawu Utd – how to get it done as they battered the latter to a 4-0 humiliating defeat to maintain the pressure on Olympics and Lions. The chase for the single spot to the PL division remains tight with Olympics atop with a point advantage over Lions and Planners respectively.

    Fourth placed Vision FC solidified their grip on that spot with a lone goal win over visiting Istanbul to make the position theirs to lose as Okwawu Utd continue to maintain their 5 game winless stupor, and Danbort FC ended their 5 games winless run with a 3-1 win over already relegated Roberto FC who picked up their 11th defeat of the second round.

    Elsewhere on the weekend, relegation engulfed Pure Joy put up a spirited performance against Tema Youth on the road to pick up a point and improve to 3points above the first relegation spot held by Amidaus who fell by a lone goal at Kotoku Royals who built a 4points buffer against the first relegation spot on 35points and the 11th spot, and already relegated King Solomon continued their elusive search for their 5th home win of the season to give their fans something to smile about.
