Tema Youth beat Bofoakwa Tano 1-0 at the Madina Astro Turf to go top of Group A in the maiden Division One League (DOL) Super Cup.
The competition which kicked off on Wednesday saw fellow Group A sides Gold Stars draw 0-0 with Skyy FC after a short ceremony.
Tema Youth, who qualified for competition after finishing second in Zone 3 of last season’s DOL scored the only goal of the match through Emmanuel Marmah. The youngster was beautifully set up by Evans Osei Wusu to slot home in the 44th minute.
Back from recess, Bofoakwa Tano began to pile pressure in search of the equalizer but the defence of Tema Youth was resolute as they stopped the array of attacks from the Sunyani-based club.
Tema Youth captain Jeremiah Arkoful came close to scoring the second goal for his side but his shot was well saved by Bofoakwa’s goalie to keep the score at 1-0.
Evans Osei Wusu who finished last season as the club’s top scorer with 12 goals was again put through by Daniel Appiah but the diminutive attacker shot wide as Tema Youth held on to win the game 1-0 to move top of Group A.
They will lock horns with Gold Stars in their second Group game on Friday, October 15.
