Heart of Lions beat Nania to stretch lead

Heart of Lions started the second round of the 2022/23 Division One League (DOL) Zone 3 match day 16 on a flying note, recording a 2-1 come­back victory over Na­nia FC at the Kpando Stadium on Sunday.

The former Premier League campaigners took another leap to secure their place in next season’s Ghana Premier League with their seventh consecu­tive win.

The Kpando-based club is now eight points clear ahead of second-placed, Semper Fi FC, with 30 points after a pulsating 0-0 stalemate with Uncle ‘T’ United.

Lions started on a bright note with skip­per, Sakabutu Dickson, going close in the fifth minute but it was Nania FC that took the lead against the run of play through Kweku Owusu’s 14th-minute strike.

Back from recess, Samuel Okine levelled the scores for the Lions.

Despite the close contest, it was the Lions that roared in the end, as a penalty was converted by Ebenezer Abban late into addi­tional time.
