*NB*: DO YOU KNOW THAT, A CLUB IN GHANA WITH THE HEAVIEST WIN IN AN AFRICA INTER-CLUB COMPETITION IS ASHANTI GOLD SC (GOLDFIELDS).
THIS HAPPENED IN 1995.
* That record belongs to Obuasi Goldfields - now AshantiGold SC- who mortified N.P.A Anchors of Liberia 8-1 in the Preliminary Round of the Caf Champions Cup - as it was then known - on the 26th March 1995. Four great goals by lethal striker Kofi Debrah, a hat-trick by Eben Hagan, and one strike by Kwabena Boateng made goal scoring easy. In the 1995 Ghana League goal-king, Debrah scored three goals in six minutes in the 22nd, 24th, and 28th minute and added another in the 76th minute.
* The Liberians substituted their goal-keeper Latec Johnson in the first half after he had conceded six goals from the 7th minute to the 42nd minute. Anchors pulled a goal back through substitute Emmanuel Horton, but Debrah and Hagan completed the rout in the last 14 minutes of play. The Miners’ historic score-line slipped into oblivion when ASEC Mimosas dimmed the hysteria of the Anchors' pummeling by knocking Goldfields out in the second round of the competition.
* Do you know that the only club to beat AshantiGold on Ghanaian soil in the CAF Inter-Club competition game was the Asec Mimosas team of 1995? They beat AshantiGold then Goldfields 2-0.
