Although the Glo Premier League match between Bechem Chelsea and visiting Accra Great Olympics at the Sunyani Coronation Park ended in a goalless drawn game, the match did not pass without nasty incident.
Cape Coast-based Class One referee P. P. Awuah, and his two assistants, Mumuni Isaaka and Michael Agbenaza, from Tamale and Aflao respectively, had to be whisked away in a police jeep from the wrath of alleged Bechem Chelsea fans who had besieged the dressing room to vent their spleen on the referees.
It took the few policemen detailed to the park to ensure law and order about 45 minutes after the match.
