Their intelligent striker Abubakari Yahuza also won the Player of the Week following Graphic Sports' analysis of various reports from the matches at the various centres.

Faisal put up a plucky performance to beat RTU 2-0 at Bolgatanga to stake a strong claim to the championship in the zone.They now lie second on the league table, just a goal behind Asante Kotoko.Yahuza won the Player of the Week, putting him a shade above Asante Kotoko's dare devil midfielder, Charles Taylor, who was also in devastating form last Sunday against B.A. United in a match that he was substituted in the 63rd minute.

Yahuza was in fantastic shape and capped an afternoon of brilliant football with two great goals. The Faisal star also shared the Goal King top spot with Kotoko's Frank Osei, who also fired two past B.A. United in their 4-1 triumph.It was a good beginning in terms of goal scoring in Zone 'A'. Eight goals were produced from the three matches played.

Asante Kotoko had half of the total number of the goals scored, making them the top-scoring club for the week. The match between Bofoakwa and AshantiGold was rescheduled for next Sunday at Sunyani.In Zone B, Accra Hearts of Oak's 3-0 walloping of Liberty Professionals at the Accra Stadium last Sunday earned them the 'Club of the Week' title.

Hearts had an easy ride over their one-time bogey side, as the Phobian strikers went on rampage with three first half goals. Veteran Emmanuel Osei Kuffour scored a brace while Ablade Morgan hit the target against his former club. Kuffour, the two-goal hero for Hearts, was named Graphic Sports' Player of the Week for Zone B.
