GHPL ROUND-UP: What we learned in the GHPL this weekend

It was another week of action that birthed entertainment, excitement and of course, surprises. Are Wa All Stars and Bechem United in crisis? The former champions lost at home to league debutants Karela FC whiles the latter is still in the hunt for their first league win. Lest i forget, have Wellington and Fabin the wherewithal to manage Hearts and Kotoko? 
 
Here are four things we learned this weekend;
 
Karela win in Wa
 
Another fantastic performance at the Malik Jabir Park saw Karela FC take all the three  points against a poor Wa All Stars side.Sarfo Castro has had no luck or whatsoever since taking over the Northern Blues, and they were behind in the latter parts of the second half when Ibrahim Moro came up trumps for the visitors. It was no more than they deserved but it appeared to knock the stuffing out of the hosts with more than two thirds of the game left. All Stars simply couldn't get near the ball as Karela stroked it around with ease. There was simply nothing that All Stars could take away from this game, and they look doomed to relegation on this performance.
 
Dwarfs leave it late
 
Dwarfs bounced back after their defeat to Asante Kotoko with a 2-1 victory over Inter Allies. However,they looked  heading for a draw with the game only 1-1 with two minutes remaining. Benjamin Eshun had scored from the spot to put Liberty Professionals in the lead , then Alhaji Mustapha equalised for the hosts before Dennis Arkoh Mensah netted in the dying embers of the game to ensure all three points.
 
Rasmussen understanding  the size of the task at WAFA.
 
Just a season ago, they were in contention for the title. Several of their players left during and after the season but many still gave them the chance to wrestle the title from Aduana Stars this campaign but that's increasingly becoming unlikely as the academy lads have not won since recording three consecutive victories at the start of the league. They lost 1-2 to Techiman Eleven Wonders over the weekend. Yusif Hussein and Emmanuel Boahen scored for the hosts. Mohammed Alhassan did get a consolation for Wafa and with goals a real problem for them at present, Rasmussen's men are without a win in their last four games, as their initial bounce has well a truly worn off.
 
Dreams shock Kotoko
 
Former Asante Kotoko boss, Karim Zito got one over his old side as Dreams FC pulled off a 1-0 victory over Kotoko on Sunday. George Dwubeng got the much  needed goal to place his side fifth on the log.
 
Pressure mounts on Wellington
 
Hearts suffered a 1-2 defeat to Elimina Sharks. They home side had an uneventful first half with Wellington failing to provide any kind of inspiration. They did improve in the second half but it wasn't enough to bring them into the game as the Phobians suffered their third defeat in seven games.
