Ashgold 2-4 Bechem United, Ahmed Toure’s brace down miners at home


Bashir Hayford’s Ashanti Gold were shocked at home when Bechem United beat them 4-2 in their Premier League match day 6 fixture.

The miners prior to the game had suffered a humiliated 5-1 loss to another Brong Ahafo side Berekum Chelsea last Sunday at the Golden City Park.

Defender Alfred Nelson and Akoto Danso shot the visitors in front but captain Tijani Joshua pulled one back to keep Ashgold dream of levelling things alive.

Striker Kofi Owusu minutes after Tijani’s striker pulled equality Ashgold following an incessant chanting by the supporters who thronged the Len Clay sports stadium.

As if the miners where going to finish Bechem United having scored two quick goals back from recess.

The battle became very difficult for Ashgold after their danger man Hans Kwofie was sent off in the game with reports suggesting he used an abusive language on centre referee Timothy Obuobisa.

Former Asante Kotoko striker made his inclusion in Bechem United felt after he magnificently scored two powerful goals to give his side a 4-2 victory after regulation time leaving Ashgold supporters crestfallen and disappointed.
