Great Olympics stayed at the Accra Sports Stadium and narrowly edged Elmina Sharks thanks to a 90th-minute goal by Daniel Adjetey.

Kelvin Andoh’s 82nd-minute goal was enough to secure all three points for Karela as they defeated WAFA 1-0 in Sogakope on Sunday afternoon.

Berekum Chelsea and Bechem United cancelled out each other in an entertaining 1-1 draw, with Kofi Owusu and Emmanuel Annor the goalscorers.
