Bechem Chelsea yesterday failed to maintain their unbeaten home record at their adopted Sunyani Coronation Park when they lost 3-1 to Real Tamale United (RTU) in their Glo Premier League encounter.
The homesters got the opener through Richard Atika on the fifth minute, while the visitors equalised through Adam Tahiru on the 19th minute.
RTU sealed the victory on the 76th and 90th minutes through Tofik Alolo and Kasim Moro respectively.
Both teams lifted their game when tied at 1-1 but failed to utilise the numerous chances that came their way until Cape Coast-based referee P.P. Awuah whistled for the end of the first half.
• Gamba All Blacks recorded their first win in the Glo Premier League yesterday with a narrow 1-0 victory over Kessben FC at their favourite Swedru Stadium, reports Jonathan Brainoo, Swedru.
Determined to prove a point following their return to Swedru, All Blacks scored the only goal on the 10th minute through Daniel Asamoah.
• Western Showboys, Sekondi Eleven Wise, yesterday held city rivals Hasaacas to a 1-1 draw in their local derby of the Glo Premier League played at the Sekondi Sports Stadium, reports Moses Aklorbortu.
Hasaacas took the lead on the 26th minute through Charles Nartey who outjumped his markers and latched onto a long cross by Joe Bissah, firing home from the 18-yard box.
Wise took the game to their city rivals but met fierce resistance by the Giants of the West, who matched their opponents boot for boot but were equally guilty of missing scoring chances.
It remained a ding-dong affair in the second half until Wise scored a deserved equaliser on the 76th minute through Mohammed Moro.
