A 95th-minute strike from midfielder Collins Boah aided visiting Dreams FC to draw 1-1 with Accra Great Olympics in their betPawa Premier League match-day 16 game at the Accra Sports Stadium yesterday.
Both teams came into this game fiercely chasing all three points, especially after they suffered losses in their last games.
Great Olympics were six places above Dreams FC but with only two points separating them heading into the game, and looked the more likely side to pick all three points.
And rightly so, they showed the winning stuff right from the blast of Referee Emmanuel Tampuri’s whistle as they took charge of the game and pressed on for the opener.
Great Olympics striker Michael Osei put his side ahead on 15 minutes after rising to head home a free-kick from Emmanuel Agyemang Badu.
The goal gave them the upper-hand as they pushed men forward for more goals and indeed they could have had more through Osei who came close in the 43rd minute mark and was only stopped by a great save from goalkeeper Augustine Koomson.
Back from the break, coach of Dreams FC Karim Zito brought on the quartet of Abdul Aziz Issah, Ishmael Dede, Ofori McCarthy and Emmanuel Agyei to strengthen the side’s play and drive them forward.
Their inclusion brought some bite into the play of the visitors as they began to pressure for the equaliser. Tried as they did, they had a blockage in Raymond Okoe Grippman and Ebenezer Sekyere who stood between them and the equaliser.
However, when all was pointing to a victory for the Dade boys, Boah popped up to hit a low grounder which zoomed into the right corner of the net to send the Olympics fans into frustrating silence.
