Boateng gives Medeama first season victory

Medeama SC on Saturday registered their first three points of the 2020/21 season after a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Ebusua Dwarfs at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The away side dominated the game from the blast of the whistle and should have taken the lead as early as the seventh minute through a Kwasi Donsu free-kick, but the effort was beautifully curtailed by Ebusua Dwarfs goalkeeper Razak Issah.

Kwasi Donsu, Kwadwo Asamoah and Godfred Abban started for Medeama at the expense of Agyenim Boateng, Eric Kwakwa and Abdul Basit.

Ebusua Dwarfs, the home side had gone two games at home without defeat, after drawing 2-2 with Elmina Sharks and beating Berekum Chelsea 1-0 on match day three.

Captain Dennis Korsah’s worked very hard on the day in search of a win against a side they have always struggled to overcome, but that came to nought.

The game travelled for 82 minutes without a goal, until substitute Agyenim Boateng netted for Medeama to register his first goal of the season. The goal was all Medeama needed to win their first game of the season, having gone three games without a win.

The Mauve and Yellow drew their first game of the season (1-1) with Accra Great Olympics before losing (2-1) to Dreams FC at Dawu. They did not play on match day four as the game against Asante Kotoko was postponed as a result of the latter’s participation in the CAF Champions League.

The win is Coach Samuel Boadu’s first of the season.
