Elmina Sharks put up an impressive showcase to consign Berekum Chelsea to a 2-1 defeat at the Paa Kwesi Ndoum Complex.
The newly-promoted side scored two first half goals and that helped them to wrap up the game.
Sharks took an early lead through Joseph Mensah on ten minutes when he slotted home after a melee.
Then Tetteh Nortey converted a spot-kick before the whistle to put them.
Nine minutes away from time, experienced striker Yaw Antwi finished off a solo move to reduce the deficit.
