Hearts of Oak whipped in Tarkwa, as Kotoko, Aduana, AshGold, Dreams cruise to the top


The Phobians are surprisingly without a single point after two games, raising concerns about their preparations

On Friday, Asante Kotoko made a huge statement of winning the league as they silenced Legon Cities FC with a 3-1 win at the Accra Sports Stadium with a brace from Emmanuel Gyamfi and a beautiful lob from Augustine Okrah.

Inter Allies also claimed a 2-1 win against Bechem United at the same venue on Saturday as they recovered from their opening day humiliation in the hands of Aduana Stars.

But Hearts of Oak are in tatters. Of course, since they are without a point after losing their opening two games of the Ghana Premier League.

After a 1-0 defeat at home to Berekum Chelsea, the Phobians were whipped 3-0 by Medeama on Sunday in Matchday 2 thanks to a brace from Prince Opoku and another strike from Nana Kofi Babil.

In Accra, Aduana Stars left it late to defeat Great Olympics 1-0 with the only goal coming from substitute Nathan Kwasi Richard. The visitors have now chalked 100 per cent in their two games and are on course to win their third league trophy.

In the Ashanti derby in Kumasi, Ashanti Gold had the last laugh when they pipped King Faisal 1-0 thanks to Mubarak Yussif’s late free-kick. The Miners have scored full marks and are yet to concede a goal this season.

Elsewhere in Techiman, Dreams FC gave Eleven Wonders the shock of their lives as they recorded a 1-0 win through Suleman Mohammed’s strike.

Meanwhile, In Sogakope Wafa added to Ebusua Dwarfs’ woes with a 2-0 home win. Goals from Eric Asomani and youngster Daniel Owusu did the damage for the Academy Boys.

In Berekum, Chelsea and Liberty Professionals shared the spoils goalless while Elmina Sharks also dropped points after drawing 1-1 with Karela United.
