Aduana Stars suffered their first defeat of the year on Sunday, falling 1-0 to Karela United in Aiyinase.
Aduana were aiming for three points to extend their lead at the top, but fell short, with Karela producing a great performance to stop the league leaders at CAM Park.
Karela entered the game having gone seven games without a victory and were not considered favourites. Nevertheless, they succeeded because of Evans Adomako’s goal in the 78th minute.
Paa Kwesi Fabin’s team fought valiantly for an equaliser, but the home team held firm and earned their first victory since November 6, 2022.
Aduana remain first, but have seen their lead cut to three points by Hearts of Oak, who were frustrated at home by Samartex.
Hearts of Oak and Samartex played to a scoreless tie. The second goalless draw in a row for the Phobians. They are still second in the table, but that could change on Monday when Kotoko, who are a point behind them, play Bibiani Gold Stars.
Great Olympics moved up to seventh after defeating Kotoku Royals 2-0 away. The victory is Great Olympics’ first in six games.
Dreams FC’s winning streak at home continued with a 3-1 victory over Real Tamale United, while King Faisal beat Tamale City by a lone goal and Nsoatreman drew 0-0 with Legon Cities.
