Draws galore characterized Glo Premiership Week 11 matches that took place at all the league centers yesterday.

Four of the matches ended in a deadlock as both Hearts of Oak and rivals Asante Kotoko drew in their respective matches.

However, Kessben FC maintained their lead on the league ladder despite drawing goalless with homesters Bechem Chelsea at the Sunyani Coronation Park. They now have 20 points, one ahead of second-placed Aduana Stars.

Aduana Stars won 1-0 at home against Wa All Stars courtesy substitute Richard Addae, proving that they would be a difficult side to beat at home this season.

At the Obuasi Len Clay Sports Stadium, drama unfolded during the game between homesters New Edubiase and visitors Asante Kotoko when a controversial penalty awarded against Kotoko with only a few minutes to go nearly brought the match to an abrupt end. Both players and technical team of the Porcupine Warriors decided to discontinue play till they later rescinded their decision.

The Porcupine Warriors who were angry not to have run away with victory, deservedly took a 3-1 lead but succumbed to a late onslaught by the homesters who equalized through a penalty expertly converted by hat-trick hero, Seidu Bamson.

In Accra, Hearts of Oak failed to pick all the three points at stake and register their third successive win when they were held to a two-all draw by Sekondi Eleven Wise.

Hearts opened the floodgates before Wise equalized and then took the lead again before Prince Appiah's stunning drive ended the game in a draw.

Elsewhere, RTU walloped Liberty Professionals 3-0 at the Tamale Sports Stadium with goals from former Hearts defender Daniel Coleman, Akwasi Sowale and Sumaila Nyanya.
