Legon Cities, Great Oly share points

Legon Cities and Great Olympics played a 1-1 draw game in a match-day 10 encounter played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday.

Yakubu opened the scoring for Legon Cities on the 23rd minute mark when he capitalized on poor marking at the Oly rear to strike into an empty net.

Olympics responded positively after the goal as they created some few chances but were unable to score.

Ibrahim Sulley pulled parity for the ‘Dade Boys’ after some delightful play by Gladson Awako around the penalty box.

The game was indeed exciting with end-to-end action but it ended one all in the first half.

Doku Cephas had a glorious opportunity to restore the lead for Legon Cities at the start of the second half, but his feeble shot was easily gathered by goalkeeper Ernest Sowah.

Olympics on the other hand, had some attempts on goal but Fatau Dauda pulled up some brilliant saves to deny them.

Great Olympics nearly took the lead in the 81st minute after Awako once again teed up striker Razak Yussif but his eventual shot missed narrowly.

Legon Cities were denied a penalty in the late stages of the game when goalkeeper Ernest Sowah brought down Abdul Karim but referee waived their appeal. –GNA
