League leaders WAFA were brought down to earth in Berekum as Chelsea came from behind to beat the Sogakope lads by 2-1.

WAFA delivered a telling blow to the home side with just 4 minutes of play when a defensive blunder by the host gave young attacker Richard Danso the chance to tap in the ball from close distance.

Chelsea responded quickly after WAFA failed to clear their lines properly as deadly poacher Stephen Sarfo capitalized to power home the leveler in the 28th minute.

The Blues came back from recess looking charged as they piled pressure on the visitors but wasted the chances that came their way, with the culprit being striker Alfred Okai Quaye.

But the Blues got the winner with just 10 minutes to end proceedings after referee Adjoku awarded them a penalty, which was duly dispatched by Stephen Sarfo.

WAFA’s maintain their top spot with 43 points but with a game in hand ahead of second placed side Aduana Stars after match day 23.

Inter-Allies could not build on their 1-0 win over Kotoko in midweek as they lost 3-1 away to Tema Youth. The habour boys crawled back from a goal down after Abdul Nasiru Hamza gave Inter-Allies the lead before Francis Adjetey, James Akaminko and Joseph Paintsil scored for the home side.

Two goals from Bright Adjei gave Aduana Stars an important 2-0 victory at home over Ebusua Dwarfs at the Agyemang Badu park to keep their title chase on course.
