Gulf Powers who are one of the serious Beach Soccer Clubs and take their training very passionate were thankful to God and coach Jonny who mapped a good strategy to outwit the over confident Blue Whales who scored the first goal through Robert Saba, but it was equalized before the Powers went ahead and Whales levelled.
By the end of the second half the boys from Chorkor were surprisingly 2- 6, down due to poor goalkeeping from Richmond Armah, standing in for the agile tall tried and tested Isaac Quartey.
The captain of Powers and new goals leader, Eric Lamptey banged in five goals before National team prospect King Addo rallied his colleagues to find their bearing and also score some of the beautiful goals, but time was not on their side so their best was a 5-7 result which the President of the GBSA Yaw Ampofo Ankrah described as one of the best matches ever played at the arena and it was sad that many television cameras were not there to cover and play back for Ghanaians who love football especially beach soccer.
These who registered the goals for Whales were Robert Saba with two goals, King Addo, Francis Patamia and Wilmot Mingle. Addo and Saba now have four goals with goal shy-Mingle at three goals.
In other matches played on the eighth week, Teshie United played a determined game to halt league leaders African Angels who have amassed 21 points through walk overs. Theo Armah of Ogbonu FM was the tactician for Teshie to grab a 2-1 winner to close the gap on 18 points.
Black Sea Lions had a walk over Global and Nungua also collected three free points from non existent James Town Octopus. Nima were sure to collect free points but they had to sweat to a 2-2 drawn game with Golden Eagles.
Yaw Ampofo Ankrah said the Division One League was interesting and urged fans to troop to the arena to watch the thrillers and new stars emerging from beach soccer.
He hinted that the National team would soon be formed because Ghana has been invited by some countries such as Togo who want to play a friendly game.
Some of the guests who watched last Saturday's matches were Fuseini Bawa General Secretary of the GBSA and Douda Luthorodt deputy coach of the Black Meteors and local Black Stars.
The first round comes to an end next Saturday with some exciting fixtures.
Teshie face Golden Eagles, Black Sea Lions clash with African Angels, Nima meet Nungua, James Town play Gulf Powers and Blue Whales lock horns with Global Supporters.
