Hearts ride on as Kotoko fall

Accra Hearts of Oak maintained a firm grip on top of the Glo Premier League after hammering city rivals Liberty Professionals 3:1 in the penultimate Round One games.

The win at the Ohene Djan Stadium puts Hearts at 32 points, followed by enterprising Kpando Heart of Lions, themselves 3:0 winners against visiting Eleven Wise at Kpando.

At Abrankesse near Kumasi, defending Champions Asante Kotoko were handed a one-nil defeat by Kessben FC, coached by Bashiru Hayford who recently lost his job at Kotoko. Baba Iddi was the lone goal hero in a game many predicted Hayford might approach with revenge as a motivation.

Sekondi Hasaacas also won big at the Essipon Stadium, dispatching Sporting Mirren by 3:1, while striker Stephen Amankwa powered Berekum Arsenals to a 2:0 win over Tema Youth at the Golden City Park.

King Faisal also came from a goal down to pip Wa All Stars by 2:1 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, while struggling Ashantigold and Bechem Chelsea settled for a one-all draw at the Len Clay Stadium.
