Obuasi based perennial Premier League campaigners Ashgold SC got their GFA Special Competition off to a flier with an emphatic 2-0 flogging of Techiman Eleven Wonders at the Len Clay Stadium.
The Aboakese boys wasted no time in retiring the ‘Citizens’ with goals from Salia Outtara and Shafiu Mumuni in a game best fit for match of the week.
A dream start to the game by the four times Ghana premier league champions proved too hot for Enos Kwame Adipah and his Wonders team as they wandered across the pitch in search of their missing souls.
A well crafted move from within the midfield department finally resulted in an opening goal from Shafiu Mumuni to give the Elephants an early lead from the 12 yards.
The much sort after attacking sensation brushed aside early missed chances to kiss the back of the twine with top class composure.
His opening goal deflated the egos of the visitors despite the tight 1-0 lead heading into recess.
Salia Outtara made it 2-0 on resumption to the end the game as a contest and sealed the win for the roaring elephants on home soil.
Shafiu came close to doubling his personal tally with a Messi-esque move only to shoot wide in the 6 yard box.
The visitors raised their game in the tail end of the game but could not get any evidence of the game despite making that regional transit for the match day one clash.
