Bechem United came from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Elmima Sharks in Week 11 of the Ghana Premier League at the Nana Gyeabour Park on Wednesday.

The Hunters were brimming with confidence ahead of the clash against the Sharks following their 1-0 win over Karela FC over the weekend.

The Elmina-based side had other ideas as they pressed the hosts into their half and deservedly went ahead in the 6th minute through flying winger Benjamin Tweneboah.

The hosts showed glimpses of a side determined to pull level by mounting incessant attacks on the visitors.

However, striker Felix Addo extended Sharks lead against the round of play in the 26th minute.

Bechem United returned from recess with the aim of pulling a goal back quickly but they were dealt another blow in the 56th minute after Sharks were awarded a penalty kick - which Benjamin Tweneboah stepped up to expertly convert the kick.

The Hunters however pulled a goal back through Adama Diabate in the 68th minute.

Just as the game looks to ending in a win for Sharks, defender Emmanuel Ampiah was shown a direct red card - which swung the game in favour of the hosts.

Seven minutes after Ampiah's sending off, Hafiz Konkoni bragged Bechem United second of the afternoon.

Despite putting more men behind the ball after feeling the pressure from the home side, Maxwell Baakoh netted at the death to hand the Hunters a 3-3 draw.
