Caf CC: Aduana claim first win in Group A

Aduana Stars secured their first win in the 2018 Caf Confederation Cup group stage with a 2-1 win over AS Vita Club at the Nana Agyeman Badu I Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

The win sees the Ghanaians up to four points in Group A from three matches thus far, tied on points with AS Vita who suffered their first loss in their Confederation Cup campaign.

All three goals were recorded within the first half-hour with the Ghanaian champions initially taking a two-goal lead.

Bright Adjei fired Aduana, hosts of the encounter at the Nana Agyeman Badu I Park, in front after just three minutes – ensuring he prodded home a pass from his strike partner Yahaya Mohammed.

He collided with AS Vita shot-stopper Lukong Bongaman in the process and had to be substituted minutes later by Oba Ikama Ultich.

Yahaya took his turn to double the lead for the Fire Club in the 10th minute as he headed home a cross from right-back Caleb Amankwaah.

But the visitors from DR Congo responded strongly, getting Ngonda Muzinga to strike past goalkeeper Joseph Addo from a free-kick routine about 20 yards out.

Both sides exchanged blows in the final 15 minutes of the half, but neither could find another goal before the break.

The home side entered the tunnel leading 2-1.

The second half was nowhere near as entertaining as the first 45 with both sides poor in the final third.

AS Vita did see more of the ball, but bad passing and terrible decision making saw them waste chance after chance in front of goal.

For the most part Stars sat back in defence and tried to protect their lead, something they managed to accomplish as the match ended 2-1 in the Ghanaians’ favour.

AS Vita will be looking for revenge in two weeks’ time when they clash once more in the Confederation Cup in the DRC on Sunday, July 29.
