Match Report: Agyenim Boateng stars as Medeama beat Aduana Stars 2-1 to end home ‘voodoo’

Medeama ended a streak of disappointing home matches after beating Aduana Stars 2-1 to record their first win of the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League season on Saturday.

Forward Isaac Agyenim Boateng bagged a brace to end the side’s difficult start to the season at home.

Medeama had drawn three home games against Great Olympics, Liberty Professionals and Asante Kotoko at the Akoon Park prior to the fixture against the Fire Club.

Boateng opened the scoring in the 7th minute with a cool finish inside the box after connecting from Abass Mohammed’s flick.

Aduana pulled parity before the first half after his Bright Adjei’s miscued shot appears to have been deflected to beat goalkeeper Frank Boateng.

The Mauve and Yellow returned from the break determined to win as they kept the heat on the visitors for the better part of the exchanges.

In one of those ensuing torrent, Agyenim Boateng walked the ball into the back of the net after a sublime build up from the two-time FA Cup winners.

This is a massive boost for Medeama who have been angling for a home win in four matches.

Coach Samuel Boadu handed debut start for goalkeeper Frank Boateng who took impressed in post in the absence of Eric Ofori Antwi.

Captain Joseph Tetteh Zutah also enjoyed his start of the season and despite being withdrawn and replaced by Ebenezer Ackhabi in the second half, discharged his duties with aplomb.

Medeama should be revived after this victory as they travel to Obuasi to battle Ashantigold next week.
