Aduana Stars 2-1 AS Vita: 4 Things We Learned As Yatshuashi Begins Aduana Career With A Win

A busy day of continental clash ended with Aduana Stars cruising to a 2-1 victory.
 
In his much- anticipated debut, Kenichi Yatshuashi provided the hosts with the insurance they craved ahead of the second round of the CAF Confederation Cup.
 
Goals from Bright Adjei and Yahaya Mohammed were all the Ogya Boys needed to keep their hopes in the competition alive.
 
Below are four things we learned in the epic clash at Dormaa.
 
Aduana triumph in must-win encounter
 
This was a tight, tense match that was always going to be higher on tension than quality. The stakes were incredibly high for both sides, with the hosts in search of their first victory and the visitors seeking to strengthen and solidify their position on the log. 
 
The game ebbed and flowed, with Aduana’s more patient, considered approach helping them exert control in the early stages leading to their two goal lead. AS Vita came on strong midway through the first half, though, and had pulled one back. 
 
The Ogya Boys stood their ground during that period and regrouped after the interval and held on to their slim lead.AS Vita created chances of their own and, on another day, could have emerged victorious.
 
It didn’t take long for intensity to drop and that will worry Kenichi Yatshuashi
 
They may have secured victory over AS Vita, but Aduana Stars are not heading into the second round in the best of shape; This campaign has been their worst run in recent times and, despite starting with purpose and taking a commanding two goal lead in the early minutes of the first half, the same frustrating patterns that has characterized their play all season soon emerged after the AS Vita pulled one back through Muzinga Ngonda in the first half.
 
Perhaps the players can be excused; they’ve not been involved in any competitive game in months due to the impasse between the government and the FA. 
 
Moreso, Yatshuashi has been in charge in for some few days and would need time inculcate his philosophy into the lads at Dormaa but even if that was on their minds, the drop in the performance will have both worried and annoyed Yatshuashi. It is their first win of the competition and would need to be consistent to be able to advance from the group.
 
Emmanuel Boateng on another level for Aduana once again
 
It was a midfield masterclass from Emmanuel Boateng at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park. AS Vita just could not get near the former WAFA magician as he inspired Aduana Stars to all three points-their first of the campaign. 
 
There will, of course, be tougher tests for Boateng, and he does still need to prove himself in the subsequent matches, but this was a performance to be enjoyed once again. 
 
The diminutive midfield metronome’s first half involved a series of spectacular long passes, dribbles and marauding runs culminating in countless tackles on him.
 
He was just too good for the AS Vita midfield that did not have the legs or energy to prevent him time and space.
 
Yahaya Mohammed shows there is still life in the old dog
 
With Aduana Stars enduring a striking conundrum with both Nathaniel Asamoah and Derrick Sassraku failing to impress when called upon, Aduana’s elder statesman, Yahaya Mohmmed, stepped in and showed that he still has plenty to offer, both in attack and defence.
 
Playing alongside Bright Adjei in a two-man –attack, he was afforded the freedom at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park when he headed home the club’s second goal from a Caleb Amankwah’s cross.
 
Minutes before his goal, Mohammed had assisted Bright Adjei to open the scoring for the hosts. 
 
His performance was a welcome remainder of the goalscoring exploits that made him such a popular choice with the domestic football enthusiasts seasons ago. 
 
Hope he replicates this  in their subsequent games
