Adu Gyamfi Senior High School is the newest Champions of the Ashanti Regional Inter-school soccer competition after piping T. I. Ahmadiyya – Kumasi by a lone goal.
The Jamasi based school showed their hunger for success and readiness to win the trophy as they engaged for T. I. Amass in an entertaining game.
This is the fifth time Adu Gyamfi have clinched the trophy as they halted the dreams of Amass who had wanted to do a double with the Inter Schools Athletics and the Football for the year 2017. This is their 5th win of the competition in the last ten years to make a bold statement as the best soccer school in Ashanti Region.
The goal resulted from a blunder from the Amass defence after a poor clearance in the penalty box ricocheted off an Adu Gyamfi SHS player into the net.
T. I. Amass predictably were very robust and aggressive as usual and fought for every ball but the skill and talent of the Adu Gyamfi players made the difference on a day where Amass failed to come to the party.
The Staff and students of the victors were in a jubilant mode as they bused off to school to continue the celebration of their triumph.
In the other game preceding the final, Islamic SHS took the third position by beating Kumasi Anglican SHS by 2:0 in the third place game. Anglican failed to defend their title won last year.
