A brace by Local Black Stars forward Yahaya

Mohammed gave Asante Kotoko a 2-0 win over

Amidaus Professionals in Tema on Sunday

afternoon on match day 13 of the ongoing

Ghana Premier League. Mohammed scored his

first goal eight minutes from half time when,

after receiving a pass from strike partner Seidu

Bancey, he rounded up the goalkeeper and

slotted in the empty net for the opener. The

forward scored his second eight minutes from

time after heading home a cross from Eric

a 1-0 win over Dwarfs in Cape Coast. Thomas

Abbey netted the game's only goal midway

through the first half to seal the points. Hearts

of Oak remain four points behind arch rivals

Asante Kotoko.
