Games played on Wednesday

 

The ‘Vandals’ of Commonwealth Hall are the first from Group B to secure qualification for the ‘Top Four’ while Mensah Sarbah Hall toppled Group A leaders GRASSAG to ensure a nervy finish to the league in Group A.

Commonwealth Hall did not only qualify for the Top Four tournament, to be staged next semester, but also secured the top spot of Group B when they defeated Elizabeth Frances Sey Hall by a goal-to-nil. The result ensures their smooth passage into the Top Four with a game to spare. Their closest opponents, Akuafo Hall and Legon Hall, both dropped points on the day. As Akuafo Hall were held to a disappointing one-all draw by Hilla Limann Hall, defending champions Legon Hall after their dispiriting performance against Commonwealth Hall in the previous round, lost yet another game. This time around, it was to James Topp Nelson Yankah hall.

The result means James Topp Nelson leapfrogs Legon Hall to third on the log with 14 points, four clear of Legon Hall in fourth place. Legon Hall, shockingly, now stand no chance of qualifying for the Top Four and hence end their disappointing defense of the crown they won last season.

Neighbors and bottom of the league Bani Hall and United Nations played out a one-all draw to wrap up the morning’s round of matches.

In the Afternoon round of matches in Group A, the hustle and tussle for the top two places will go down the wire after leaders GRASSAG were toppled off the summit of the log with their 4-2 loss to the Distance Team. But top goal scorer in the league, Dominic Yakah continued his fine scoring form with a brace, despite their defeat.

With GRASSAG losing, Mensah Sarbah Hall took full advantage of their slip when they white-washed Jubilee Hall by four-goals-to-one. The win pushed Sarbah Hall right back to the top of the table with 13 points followed closely by GRASSAG and Distance, who are level on points with 11 points each.

The chances of the ISH qualifying for the top four was dealt a huge blow when they recorded their second defeat of the season following their 2-1 defeat at the Hands of Alex Kwapong Hall. Jean Nelson Aka Hall also shared the spoils with African Union Hall to wrap up the games for Matchday Seven.
