Hearts Stumble At Wa As Kotoko Stretch Lead

Lead2Accra Hearts of Oak’s surge for the top was given a rude jolt yesterday in the last match of the first round following a massive defeat to Wa All Stars.

The Blues thrashed the Phobians 3-0 in Wa to move out of the relegation zone.

The loss, the first for new coach Mohammed Polo and the biggest margin that the Phobians have gone down this season will not go down well with their Club’s supporters.

Denis Adusei opened the scoring in the 25th minute before two-goal hero Paul De-Vries Asare scored the second ten minutes later.

Wa All Stars went into the break two goals up and after the break, Hearts of Oak pushed to pull a goal back but they were undone by the determined home side.

De-Vries Asare made it three-nil to seal the fate of the Phobians as   Polo’s side folded like a pack of cards.

At the Baba Yara Stadium, King Faisal won 2-1 against Bechem United.

Wilson Andoh and Abdulai Yaserbos scored for Faisal before Sadat Mohammed got the consolation for Bechem.

In Obuasi, AshantiGold drew goalless with Berekum Cheslea while Aduana Stars also shared the spoils with New Edubiase in their goalless drawn game in Dorma.

At Cape Coast, Asante Kotoko came from behind to share the spoils with Ebusua Dwarfs in their 2-2 draw as the season reached the halfway stage.

The Porcupine Warriors now hold a seven-point lead at the top after their rivals, Hearts of Oak lost away while AshatiGold could only draw at home.

However, Kotoko will be happy to leave Cape Coast with a point after going down two-nil just ten minutes into the start of the game.

Kotoko conceded the first goal from a corner kick Frederick Boateng found space at the far post to connect the opener in the 5th minute.

Five minutes later and from another corner kick, Kotoko failed to find their markers. They were punished when Richard Gadze scored the second goal for the home side.

The Champions pulled one back in the 23rd minute through Abdul Yusif before the league’s leading scorer, Seidu Bancey scored the equaliser in the second half.

In Tema, Hasaacas staged a great revival to win over Amidaus Professionals 3-2.
