The second round of the normalisation committee special competition kicked off across all centres all over the country.
Kotoko couldn’t repeat their mid-week brilliance as they were held to a 0-0 draw against Berekum Chelsea at Berekum. The major talking point of that game, sadly was an incident that happened before kick off. 2 Kotoko officials, including policy analyst, Dr. Amo Sarpong, sustained several wounds and had to be rushed to the hospital after being victims of violent attacks from Chelsea fans.
The 2 were attacked by a section of Berekum Chelsea fans who hurled insults at them. It became intense and in an attempt to scare them away, Dr. Sarpong fired warning shots. This only triggered the fans, who proceeded to attack them with sticks and stones until the police came to their rescue. They were rushed to the Sunyani Government hospital and have since been treated and discharged.
Kotoko still remain top of the table despite their dropped points but have their lead cut down to just one point after Medeama’s 1-0 win against Aduana stars at Tarkwa.
Elsewhere in Premier B, hearts of oak followed their good win in midweek with another brilliant 2-0 win against Inter Allies at the Tema stadium.

WAFA also beat Ebusua Dwarfs 2-0 at the Red Bulls Arena in Sogakope while Elmina Sharks thumped Dreams FC 5-1.
