Dreams FC delivered a thrilling performance at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu, defeating Bofoakwa Tano 3-1 in their rescheduled match day 12 Ghana Premier League (GPL) fixture.
This victory is crucial for Dreams FC, who have been juggling their league commitments with their CAF Confederation Cup campaign this season.
Agyenim Boateng got Dreams off to a lightning-fast start, scoring just four minutes into the game. However, Bofoakwa Tano refused to yield easily, responding swiftly with Issac Baffoe’s equalizer in the 25th minute.
The game remained tense and evenly matched until the stroke of halftime when Abdul Aziz stepped up to give Dreams the lead.
Aziz wasn’t done yet. He continued his stellar performance in the second half, grabbing a second goal in the 81st minute to secure his brace and Dreams’ emphatic victory. This brace brings Aziz’s total league tally to an impressive 6 goals in 13 matches this season.
The win propels Dreams FC to 14th position on the table with 18 points after 15 matches, setting a positive stage for their upcoming fixtures. With two outstanding games remaining to conclude the first round, Dreams will face Bibiani Gold Stars on January 13 at home before traveling to Karela United on January 17. These rescheduled matches, postponed due to their continental commitments, are crucial for Dreams’ ambition to climb further up the table in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Medeama SC Claim Narrow Victory Over Great Olympics
In another noteworthy match from the rescheduled round, defending champions Medeama SC edged out Great Olympics by a solitary goal courtesy of Mamudu Kamaradin. This win secures Medeama’s 9th position on the table with 23 points after 15 games.
Similar to Dreams FC, Medeama’s ongoing participation in the CAF Champions League has added complexity to their domestic schedule. However, their narrow victory showcases their resilience and ability to compete effectively on multiple fronts. Medeama’s next challenge comes on January 13 when they host Bofoakwa Tano in what promises to be another exciting encounter.
