Stephen Amankwaah's 57th minute goal handed Berekum Arsenals 1-0 win over Real Tamale United and preserved their unbeaten home run at the Golden City Park stretching over two seasons now.

Emmanuel Osei cancelled out Edmund Owusu-Peprah's opener for Kessben FC as All Stars shared their spoils at the Anane Boateng Park.

All Stars finished the game with ten men after Gafaru Nasaru was shown the red card on the stroke of regulation time.

The frustrations of AshantiGold continued on home grounds as the Miners lost 2-1 to Liberty Professionals. The defeat was the ninth loss by the Miners this season as they remain bottom on the sixteen-club table.

Latif Salifu drew first blood for the away side after 10 minutes Emmanuel Adjetey drew level for AshantiGold in the 25th minute.
