WAFA prior to this game has won only one match and were only a shadow of their old self. Crazily high standards they have set for themselves in the past and were struggling to match them this season but never got closer until they found today’s prey.
They started the game on the front foot holding AshGold to their own half for the first ten minutes and exploded afterwards after testing the depth of the waters in the mining pits. In the 16th minute AshGold were lucky not to concede after Richard Danso blew away a glaring chance from a sensational cross by Augustine Boakye.
They stood their grounds and held the miners to their breath and knocked their doors till the 27th minute defender Konadu Yiadom rose highest to nod a corner home sliding the Sagakope outfit into the lead.
AshGold came close to finding the equalizer when midfield enforcer Appiah MacCarthy sent in a ferocious shot to hit the woodwork in the 32nd minute. Three minutes on, Amos Nkrumah met a dangerous cross in the air and bonked it into the net to pull parity for the Miners.
After some sluggish play from the AshGold defense Amos Ntim laid ambush the AshGold backline to start the rout by firing home the second.
The first half ended two one in favour of WAFA. After recess, two minutes in, Ibrahim Abukari added another in no doubt from the spot after Sampson Agyapong was tripped in the box of AshGold for WAFA’s third.
AshGold responded to the troll by bringing in David Abagna Sadan for Osei Baffour in the 56th minute. Even worse, reliable centre back Yussif Mubarik was substituted three minutes later for Mohammed Musah to come on.
When the clock struck the 75th minute mark Konadu Yiadom hit a brace with another header from the corner spot making it four with quarter of an hour to go.
In the 83rd minute Daniel Owusu who came in for Sampson Agyapong struck WAFA’s fifth when Eric Asamany lays a beautiful pass that set him free and he fires home cooly.
Debuting youngster Haruna Mola scored on his first game for WAFA by tapping in from close quarters to complete the humiliation of the Miners.
Six-one it ended at the Redbull Arena, Sagakope. That win means the Sagakope outfit had won their second of the season and marching the miners to their worst ever defeat in topflight football.
