Resilient Elmina Sharks hold Hearts of Oak in Accra

6 months ago

Fans of Accra Hearts of Oak left the Accra Sports Stadium disappointed following their side's 1-1 stalemate with visiting Elmina Sharks on Sunday.

A goal each within the space of 13 minutes from Dennis Mensah of Sharks in the 25th minute and Kofi Kordzi in the 38th minute was all both sides needed to settle scores.

While Mensah profited from a loose ball from behind the box to hit one past former teammate Richard Attah in post for Hearts of Oak, Kordzi was left unmarked in the box and had all the time in the world to nod home a cross from close range.

Back from recess, the two teams created a number of scoring opportunities but failed to convert any for the match-winner.

The draw means the Phobians, who have recorded a single win in their last five league games, remain glued to 8th position on the log with 17 points while Sharks tower above them in 7th with 18 points.
