The Academy Boys’ quest to win their first game of the season was pegged back twice by the Royals in Sogakope on Sunday in week four. WAFA shot their noses in front courtesy Lawrence Agyekum with four minutes of time played. Legon Cities will however not waste much time by restoring parity three minutes after WAFA’s opener from Abdul Rahman. WAFA restored their lead before half time through striker, Justus Torsutsey who headed in Sampson Agyapong's free-kick.

We played very well today unlike the other games where we struggled to pitch passes and get to our tempo, we did well to keep possessions than our opponents. “They surprised us with how they played today, we didn’t expect them to give us a run like this but all we got was a draw which we intend to build on although am a little disappointed,” he told Saharafootball.net
