Day 2 of the Ashanti regional inter-schools soccer competition saw a lot of goals as teams run riot over their opponents in their bid to advance. Osei Kyeretwie featuring Emmanuel Toku was a sensation to watch as they beat the debutant side St. Michaels by 4-0. Manso Adubia surprised Jachie Pramso s.h.s as they defeated them 3-0. The naive team of JAPASS was no match to the well built and matured team of Manso Adubia. T.I Amass produced a not-too convincing performance to overcome nsutaman Catholic by a lone goal.
Parading a very experienced team which included Faisal, the national under– 17 captain, Abdul Gaffar a.k.a Gettuso, Mike a.k.a Abodam and their goal keeper Batis. AMASS looked disjointed and lacked team work but did what was needed in football by winning 1-0 against a determined Nsutaman side.
Simms senior high commercial managed to hold Kumasi high school to a goalless drawn game and beat them on penalties. Kumasi High school had in their fold a national under quality star nicknamed Tampico who was brought on in the second half and did show glimpses of a good player though not enough to change the course of the game.The two sides were determined to win the game but the few chances they created were not utilised to the disappointment of their fans. Kumasi High school replaced Konongo Odumase senior high school who pulled out following the closure of the school. Perhaps the biggest upset of the day came through in the fit match of the day when Kumasi Academy were given the biggest shock of their lives when Adanwomase senior high defeated them 3-1.
Though KUMACA was not bad, a very efficient Adanwomase side made things quite difficult for them as they scored all their goals against the run of play.
The last match of the day saw Opoku Ware School battling Nkawie sec tech for a ticket to the next round of the competition. Nkawie Sectec proved stubborn in the first half of the game but succumbed to incessant pressure from Opoku Ware who initially looked jittery but settled in the course of the game. In the end Owass posted a 3-0 win over Nkawie Sectec.
