MTN FA Cup Final: Okwawu Face Bechem United Sept. 4

Former Okwawu United will clash with Bechem United in the 2016 MTN FA Cup finals on September 4, at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The former Premier League side progressed to the finals for the first time in 30-years after beating Liberty Professional 3-1 on penalties in the second semi-final match.

The highly competitive game ended in a 1-1 stalemate in regulation time after Latif Blessing and McClean Ampadu scored for Liberty Professionals and Okwawu United respectively.

Bechem United had earlier defeated lower-tie side WA Rockets 2-0 to book their place in the finals. Thanks to goals by Hamza Mohammed and Richard Baffour.

Okwawu United saw off Dreams FC, Dunkwa United and WAFA to qualify to the last four whilst Bechem United eliminated Paga Japan Stars, Sunyani Liberty and Asante Kotoko to reach the semi-final stage of the competition.

Okwawu United will hence be making their second appearance at the finals of the MTN FA Cup as against Bechem United’s first.
