Twenty times Ghana Premier League champions, Hearts of Oak in the earliest start of the game projected to slumber the visitors, Great Olympics having some brilliant experiences on the play ground never allowed the host.
An early goal by experience skipper Gladson Awako in the 14th minutes broke the virginity of the game to put the visitors in front. Sensational Maxwell Abbey doubled the score to make it 0-2 just three minutes pass the first goal before recess.
Deep into the second phase, Young Manaf of Accra Hearts of oak wiggled very well and maneuvered his own way through Great Olympics defense just to drop his side’s deficit but the sold defenders devalue his entering to end the beautiful game at 0-2 score in favor of the visitors.
Accra Great Olympics after victory now move from the 7th position to the 3rd position with 18 points on the table log while Heats of oak who where lying on the 3rd position are currently lying on the 6th position with 16 points after defeat to Great Olympics.
