Both sides played tactical to gain control of the game soon after the blast of the referee' whistle but it was Hasaacas who took advantage of its home support by pressurising Heart of Lions into defending their goal area.

Hasaacas managed to hold their opponents at bay and attacked from the flanks but when this failed to produce the needed results, they decided to launch a full-scale attack.

Heart of Lions managed to stage a come back and took control of the mid-field after Hasaacas failure to find the opener.

The visitors tactically made incursions into the goal area of Hasaacas and the home team had to tighten up its defence denying the attackers of Heart of Lions to utilise some of their scoring chances.

Back from the recess, Hasaacas continued with their attack but the visitors proved unyielding as they showed greater determination to carry the day.

The efforts of both teams failed to find the winner until the final blast of whistle to end the day's proceedings.
