Wa All Stars break Phobian hearts again

10 years ago

Wa All Stars exposed the deficiencies in the Hearts of Oak set-up as they strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory to record back-to-back wins over the Phobians in the First Capital Plus Premier League.

The victory was a repeat of their previous meeting in the League back in December of last year in Wa where Hearts of Oak lost by the same margin.

A second minute opener and two other strikes in the second half piled the pressure on the Accra side as their supporters filed out of the stands before full-time.

Samuel Boateng side-footed home the first goal after connecting a shot across the face of goal from Emmanuel Gyamfi.

The Blues held onto their second minute lead to end the first half 1-nil up.

Hearts of Oak returned from the break determined to draw level but were soon put on the back foot just five minutes into the restart of the game.

Abdul Ganiyu drilled freekick from 20 yards past the Hearts wall with goalkeeper Philemon McCarthy.

And in the 85th minute, Ghana international, Paul Asare, who came off the bench sealed victory when he headed in a rebound that had come off the crossbar from close range.
