betPawa PL: Ashie-Quaye scores first goal of the season as Great Olympics beat Bechem Utd

Samuel Ashie-Quaye scored the first goal of the 22/23 betPawa Premier League as Great Olympics beat Bechem United 1-0.

The game played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Matchday 1 saw Great Olympic coach Yaw Preko name a very familiar starting lineup to face the Hunters with old guys like Raymond Oko Grippman, Solomon Adomako, Razak Kassim, Abdul Razak Yussif and Ebenezer Sekyere all included.

Former Ghana international midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu was handed a starting role as he made his competitive debut in the Blue and White shirt.

The first half of the game ended barren since both sides failed to exploit each other’s weakness to find the back of the net.

Ashie-Quaye was introduced in the match at the start of the second half as he took the place of Adrian Adjetey.

The former Ghana U20 star got the breakthrough to put the Wonder club ahead in the 81st minute and that goal eventually won the match for the home side.

Defender Abdul Bashiru was named man of the match after the game.
