Maxwell Abbey Quaye fired Olympics into the lead in the 36th minute after having a great start to the game with top quality ball control and inter positional play.

Liberty Professionals improved their play after the recess but Olympics did not let their guard as they stood firm to protect their lead.

Prosper Ahiabu and Stanley Appaw made way for Godfred Atuahene and Simon Appaw and that appeared to have given the visitors a little push in the final third.
