Wa All Stars won their maiden Ghana Premier League title after beating fellow title chasers, Aduana Stars 2-1, on Wednesday at the Malik Jabir Park in Wa.
The two teams headed into the match level on 48 points but victory for All Stars would hand them the title because of their superior head-to-head record against Aduana. They won in Dormaa on match day 2 and that would separate them if they ended the league tied on points.
They started well and got the opener through Paul De Vries Asare but Aduana responded through Bright Adjei.
There was drama in the second half when Wa All Stars were awarded a penalty. Aduana players threaten to walk off the pitch but calm was soon restored and Sadiq Alhassan scored from the spot to give the team its first ever title.
