Listen to article

Cape Coast, Aug. 2 GNA - Giants of the West, Sekondi Hasaacas were on Sunday, held to a goalless drawn game by Ebusua Dwarfs in a friendly soccer match at the Cape Coast sports stadium.

The match, which forms part of activities to round up Dwarfs preparations towards the Division One league, saw a remarkable improvement in the performance of the team, who in a similar encounter at Sekondi about a month ago, lost 3-1 to Hasaacas.

In Sunday's match, the homesters did not give their opponents any breathing space and matched them squarely until the blast of the final whistle.

Just after the blast of class one referee, Richard Nyarko's whistle, Hasaacas went into action and pinned Dwarfs into their own half, but the able defence spearheaded by Ekow Ghansah foiled all attempts of the visitors to find an early opener.

Dwarfs gradually warmed themselves into the game and came close to scoring in the 25th minute, but outside right, Nana Kwei with only the goalkeeper to beat shot over the bar.

Hasaacas best opportunity came in the 75th minute when midfielder, Ibrahim Laweh's header sailed over the bar thereby ending the match goalless.

Meanwhile the Central Region Association of Sports Broadcasters of Ghana (ASBOG) will be inaugurated at Cape Coast on Friday, August 6. Mr Asinfo Mensah, Secretary of the Association told the GNA Sports that highlights of the programme will include a soccer match between ASBOG and Cape Coast Salvation Keep Fit Club and a symposium on HIV/AIDS pandemic.

He said ASBOG has camped 15 broadcasters to undergo training under the association's coach, Mr Albert Oduro. Management of Bless FC, Play Boy Sounds and Friends Gardens are among organisations sponsoring the programme.
