With a bright start, Ashgold SC dominated Great Olympics right after the game resumed. Taking advantage of a good chance, in-form Yaw Annor scored in the 47th minute to give the Miners the lead for the first time in the game.
Although Great Olympics played some delightful football after going behind, they could not equalize and have been condemned to a 2-1 loss.
The win is Ashgold’s first away victory of the season and sees the team climbing to second on the Ghana Premier League standings.
