Yaw Annor beats Kotoko’s Mbella Etouga to finish as GPL top scorer with 22 goals
Yaw Annor scored twice as AshantiGold managed a 2-2 stalemate with Biabiani Gold Stars away from home on the final day of the Ghana Premier League.
Having scored 20 goals, Annor was just a goal behind Asante Kotoko’s Franck Mbella Etouga heading into matchday 34. The Kotoko striker failed to add to his tally in the last game against Accra Lions as his side played out a 1-1 draw, giving the Ashgold forward motivation before the game at the Dun’s Park.
The 24-year-old opened the scoring in the 23rd minute of the game before adding a second on the verge of halftime. His two goals against Gold Stars saw him eclipse Etouga as the league’s top-scorer for the 2021/22 season while also ensuring he equaled Ishmael Addo’s record of 22 league goals in a single campaign, the most by any player in the Premier League.
