Berekum Chelsea got out to the better start of the two teams and took the lead in the 11th minute through new signing Afriyie Mezack, who connected with a cross from Kalou Ouattarra.
The home team had a field day, and they can thank Abdul Jabil for making some outstanding stops to preserve the score at 1-0.
The home team had a slim 1-0 advantage going into halftime, but it might have been more thanks to some outstanding goalkeeping from Abdul Jabil and the heroics of King Faisal.
Awuah Dramani, a former Young Apostles striker, added a second goal in the 57th minute to make it 2-0 after the break.
With a 2-0 victory, Berekum Chelsea has ascended to the top of the inaugural betPawa Premier League.
