Phobians are the new Kings

Phobians are the new Kings

Champions were being crowned everywhere and Accra Hearts of Oak made show they picked their 19th title even though they lost on Sunday.

Accra Hearts of Oak were beaten 2-1 by Gamba All Blacks in Swedru but the Phobians still picked the title as their closest contenders, AshantiGold could only manage a point at home.

With a draw in Len Clay, the party wasn't going to be delayed any further as the Phobians finally wrestle the title from archrivals, Asante Kotoko and return to Africa after missing out of the last edition.

The Phobians with a game to go are five points clear at the top.

Bismark Idan put the Black Magicians in the lead before Joseph Techie Menson drew level for the Phobians with a powerful strike from a free kick to end the first half 1-1.

Back from recess, the Phobians attempted to jump into the lead but the Black Magicians got the match winner through Obed Owusu.

Despite the defeat, the Phobians are the 2006/07 league champions.
