Bechem United down Medeama 2-0

Bechem United recorded a 2-0 win over Medeama in match day-2 of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

A goal in each half from Seth Sowah and Emmanuel Owusu helped the Hunters to bag their first three points of the season.

The Mauve and Yellow will feel downhearted after dominating possession at the Nana Gyeabour Park.

Captain Joseph Tetteh Zutah should have opened the scoring early on in the first half after his left-footed strike was parried by goalkeeper Prince Asempa.

Striker Kwame Boateng also got close to scoring after his deft touch missed the post by inches but perhaps the best opportunity fell to Tetteh Zutah again, whose curled effort ricochet of the bar.

Medeama failed to make the first half dominance count after defender Seth Owusu, left unmarked, rose above everybody to head home the opener from a corner-kick.

The lead reinvigorated the side in the second half as they kept their composure and cool.

In a rare counter-attack, Emmanuel Owusu poked home from range after outsmarting left-back Gideon Acquah to make it 2-0.

Tried as the visitors did, they failed to break a resolute Bechem United defensive network down to suffer their first defeat of the campaign.

The defeat means, Medeama have suffered their 6th defeat at the Nana Gyeabour Park with last season’s 1-1 stalemate their best performance at the venue.
