Inter Allies were beaten 2-0 at the hands of WAFA SC at the WAFA Park in Sogakope in the Ghana Premier League week 15 ecounter to end the first round.
Two goals from Prince Obeng Ampem in both halves were more than enough for the league leaders at their own backyard to grab this comfortable win – their first win over Inter Allies in Sogakope.
Martin Antwi who captained this WAFA side for the past two seasons did not make the dream return to face his former side for the first time since he left them before the start of this season due to injury.
The same starting 11 was maintained from the previous game that the Capelli Boys won 3-0 against Bolga All Stars at the El Wak Stadium last weekend.
It was a long day for the ‘Eleven Is To One’ as the visitors were forced to unsettle until the breakthrough goal in the first 5 minutes of the game.
Lomotey got off his markers on the right flanks and sent a teasing cross in which was already made for Prince Obeng Ampem to slot in from close range.
Gradually, Inter Allies warmed into the game with IsaacTwum, Prince Baffoe and Samuel Konney showing a bit of urgency but their attacks went futile.
The ‘Eleven Is To One’ managed to hold on until the break, but it’s WAFA who would come into the second half much more stronger.
Majeed Ashimeru made a surging run through Inter Allies defence before putting Prince Obeng Ampem through on goal; the latter lobbed the ball over Kwame Baah for a perfect second, his brace in the 54th minute.
WAFA were victorious after totally dominating the entire duration, Inter Allies put a fight but wasn’t enough to make a claim in the game.
Richmond Lomotey (WAFA) was named the Man of the match.
