Berekum Chelsea continued their fine start of the Ghana Premier League after beating Ashgold by a lone goal at the Len Clay Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

In-form Kofi Owusu’s strike was enough for the Blues to protect their impressive start.

Ashgold proved to be the better side in the first half but failed to find the back of the net following inefficiency in front of goal.

Chelsea had to defend a lot did so with comfort and went into the first half break delighted with the goalless scoreline.


Ten minutes into the second half, Berekum Chelsea found themselves in the lead after star attacker Kofi Owusu had found the back of the Ashgold net with a fine curling effort from the edge of the box.

Though Ashanti Gold came in strong after going behind, their forward line could not provide the expected potency up-front. They squandered all the chances that came their way as they ended the match on the losing side.

By virtue of the win, Berekum Chelsea has managed to beat the 3 biggest clubs in the country. They had already defeated Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko by a similar scoreline prior to today’s meeting.

The team goes top of the Ghana Premier League temporarily as they await results from Sunday’s fixtures.
