Blues beat Bechem to win Super Cup in season curtain-raiser

20th Jan 2017 | by: News Desk

Premier League champions Wa All Stars have added the Super Cup to their list of trophies after they beat FA Cup holders Bechem United 1-0 in Tamale, Sunday afternoon.

Emmanuel Ocran scored the winner five minutes into the start of the game when his angled shot found the bottom corner in the hotly contested game.

The Blues supporters still savouring their historic league title success have another feat to celebrate following Sundays victory in the traditional curtain-raiser of the new Ghanaian season.

And the new feat comes five months after Enos Kwame Adipah guided the Blues to their maiden premiership success.

The young coach, who will be making his second attempt in the elite division was again the man behind the success that put the expensively assembled Bechem side to the sword.

Parading three new players - Rashid Seidu, Nana Addai Aduku and Seth Amoateng - in his starting line up, it was the Blues who took the game to their opponents as Ocran's strike drew first blood and settled the game.

Bechem responded swiftly as their attack, led by former Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Toure with support from Yaw Anorl struggled to break down the makeshift central defence pair of Ishaku Konda and Aduku.

?Wa All Stars also struggled upfront with Amoateng noth threatening enough.

The Blues will be boosted by this victory having failed to win any game this year after two high-profile international friendly defeats.
