Sekondi, Aug. 11 GNA - Sekondi Hasaacas maintained their superiority over their city rivals, Sekondi Eleven Wise when they beat them 1-0 in a football encounter at the Sekondi Gyandu Park.
The match was the second in the day in a four-team soccer tournament organised as part of activities to mark the first ever Western Region Homecoming Summit, opened by the Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama on Monday.
The match was one of the best exhibited by both teams in recent times at the Gyandu Park as they entertained the spectators to fine football and displaying abundant skills in all departments of the game with the spectators having a lot to cheer about.
John Ainoo, captain of Hasaacas got the only goal of the gruelling match in the 55th minute of the second half when he headed home a corner kick expertly taken by Moses Andoh from the left flank.
Eleven Wise who obviously were the most determined side could have drawn even or carried the day but for the erratic shooting by their attackers that saw them wasting clear chances that came their way. They dominated play especially in the second half blowing away all the begging chances when in the 20th minute, mid-fielder, Richard Hartey with only Hasaacas' goalkeeper Ekow Ampiah to beat, shot feebly into his hands.
In the 70th minute, Hasaacas had the opportunity to increase their lead but Francis Aduhene's close range shot was saved by Joseph Kyea in posts for Eleven Wise.
In the last twenty minutes, Eleven Wise with determination increased the tempo of their attack but try as they did, they could not find the equaliser.
In the first match, Bibiani Gold Stars whacked Samreboi Samatex 2-0 with both goals coming from Joshua Aikins in the 70th and 85th minutes of the game.
Hasaacas would meet Gold Stars while Eleven Wise lock horns with Samatex in the finals of the tournament on Wednesday.
