WAFA SC pulled a shock result to beat Ebusua Dwarfs 3-2 on the road at the Cape Coast Stadium to end a five-match winless run.
The Academy Boys had to be at the clinical best to scale over the hurdle.
The opener came in the 36th minute through an opportunistic effort from Richard Danso.
Dwarfs goalkeeper Danso Wiredu Mensah came out of his box with a clearance close to the corner flag but it was poorly taken and Danso shrugged off a challenge to intercept the ball before slotting into the gaping net.
Danso weaved his magic with some skills on the left flank and went past his marker before swinging in a cross which was connected home by Charles Boateng from inside the box.
Before the half hour mark, Dwarfs had a penalty appeal rejected Osman Mohammed dropped like a stone inside the box.
He went on a solo run into the area and skipped past Richmond Ayi before loosely going down.
As early as the third minute, Ayi had to be alert to palm away Solomon Okudzeto’s header from close range.
It was a lovely threaded ball from the middle and Amate went on a the run before chipping it over goalie Mensah for the third.
Dwarfs were however back into the game in the 66th minute when Solomon Okudzeto directed a cross into the net.
But goalkeeper Ayi gets the blame due to a poor clearance which was intercepted.
Then in the 74th minute, Dwarfs were awarded a penalty and Osman Mohammed slotted home.
Referee Maxwell Owusu claimed ball hit the hand of captain Alhassan inside the box. He tooks seconds before pointing to the spot but the assistant ref’s flag was down.
