Mercurial talent Majeeed Ashimeru led the revival for WAFA SC as the Academy Boys raced from a goal down to beat Tema Youth 2-1 at home.
The midfielder collected a pass inside his own half and wriggles past few men before pulling the trigger with a belter.
Goalkeeper Stephen Kwaku was caught flat-footed as the ball flew into the net.
But it was the Tema-based who shot ahead in the 32nd when Joseph Paintsil scored after a failed clearance on a corner-kick.
Tema Youth managed to defend that goal and went into the break with the solitary but 12 minutes after the break, WAFA were awarded a penalty.
Right back Caleb Amankwah was brought down inside the box and centre back Abukar Ibrahim elected himself to convert it beautifully.
WAFA travel to Kumasi to face Asante Kotoko and Tema Youth host Hearts of Oak.
