Hearts Stumble At Dansoman

By Andrew Nortey

Players and Technical team members of Accra Hearts of Oak yesterday attracted the fury of their fans after painfully losing 1-2 to Real Sportive in their Onetouch Premier League match played at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman.

Accusing the players of indiscipline and the technical men of incompetence, the supporters registered their disappointment with the porus and uncoordinated play that saw them miss good chances and lost all the tackles.

The disappointment was not only registered among the fans but on the VIP dais when Chief Executive, Thomas Okine, board secretary, Ernest Thompson and other top management members sat in utter despair and wondered what the problem was.

After initial struggle, Eric Gawu put the smiles on the faces of the loyal Hearts fans when he ghosted past his markers to struck home from close range.

Skipper Esme Mends however brought Sportive at par when he connected a low cross from the right before substitute Frank Osei silenced the Hearts fans with a beautiful volley that beat Sulemana Abubakar in post.

A 55th minute goal by Kwesi Boateng was all Bofoakwa Tano needed to secure the three maximum points in their match against visiting Accra Great Olympics at the Sunyani Coronation Park yesterday, reports Ian Motey.

It was relegation threatened Bofoakwa who started the day on a bright note, forcing several corner kicks within the first 10 minutes

As the homesters continue mounting pressure they earned a penalty in the 44th minute but wasted the opportunity after a retake when the referee disallowed the first kick.

Both teams started the second half with renewed energy, however it was Bofoakwa who had the last laugh with the lone goal of the match.
