Hearts return to winning ways

13 years ago

The premiership records a low goal count, seven, from eight match centres this weekend as the league nears the half-way line.

A determined approach by Hearts of Oak helped them pick all three points against AshantiGold after beating the Miners 1-0 at the Ohene Djan Stadium.

The Phobians who had defender Saeed Mohammed sent off looked off colour as the visitors pushed to break the deadlock.

Hearts, who had lost their last two league games however had something to cheer about when substitute John Antwi scored the winner to leave the Miners dejected and ease the pressure on beleaguered coach Paa Kwesi Fabin.

Goalkeeper William Ahadzi's howler allowed leaders Bechem Chelsea to beat All Stars 2-1 at the Golden City Park and open a three-point gap at the top.

Bismark Idan gave the home team a first half lead which was canceled after the break by substitute Fatau Mohammed. But the Blues failed to play for a point when Ahadzi spilled Emmanuel Clottey's effort into the post.

Nurudeen Mohammed's second half goal handed champions Aduana Stars a 1-0 win over Mighty Jets at the Dormaa Park.

New Edubiase and Liberty Professionals played out a 0-0 draw at the Gyemfis Park.

Asante Kotoko halted their four-game losing run as they could only settle for a goalless draw against 10-man B.A Stars at the Coronation Park. Kotoko could not take advantage of the second half dismissal of Daniel Larbi Koomson and the point earned is their first in five consecutive games.

Real Tamale United's battle to avoid relegation was further worsened at the Tamale Stadium where a late goal by Nana Poku gave Berekum Arsenals a 1-0 victory.

Kessben FC shared the spoils with Ebusua Dwarfs in a goalless draw game at the Sekondi Sports Stadium.

Earlier on Saturday, King Faisal beat Heart of Lions 1-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium. Micky Ofosu scored the match winner in the second half.
