Okwawu Hold Liberty


Liberty Professionals and Okwawu United shared the points in their 14th Week mid-week GT Premier League match at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium in Accra on Wednesday. The two sides had a fair share of chances in the game to pick the three maximum points at stake but their attackers failed to convert th chances with series of near misses.

Even though the first half saw much dominance on the part of Okwawu they could not break through the defence of the home side marshealled solidly by Wahid Mohammed, David Addo, Agyemang Hanson and Stanisslav Toclomitu who stood firm in the face of the raids. Liberty on the other hand had some clear opportunities to score but Peter Ofori Quaye, Felix Baffoe and Michael Helegbe could not find the right direction for their shots while Okwawu's keeper, Fatau Alhassan stood on their way on several occasions to thwart their effort to end the first half on a barren note.

The second half continued on the same pattern as both sides missed glorious chances but it was Liberty who came close in the 72nd and 84th minutes with Komla Amewu's free kick on both occasions hitting the cross bar with none of his colleagues around to take care of the rebounds. Okwawu's Farouk Adama also saw his close range header saved by Liberty's keeper, Kotei Blankson after he received a cross from Tony Tekpketey in injury time to end the days' hostilities. Okwawu's keeper Alhassan was at the end of the game adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the match.
