In Sogakope, Augustine Boakye rescued a point for WAFA after Justice Mensah took the lead for the away side-Elmina Sharks in the first half.

Meanwhile, Karela recorded their second successive win, beating Dreams FC 2-1 at the fortress Crosby Awuah Memorial park. Despite Joseph Esso putting the visitors in the lead; a brace by Francis Osei completed a comeback and handed the three points to the Ayinase based club.

The last game of the weekend saw Hearts of Oak failing to take their chances and eventually Richmond Lamptey made the Phobians pay with an absolute belting strike way long from goal to hand Inter Allies all three points coupled with a first of many wins to come.

Matchday four has some exciting fixtures on the schedule as Kotoko travels to Medeam while Hearts of Oak would play host to league leaders Karela.
