Medeama SC Pip Hearts Of Oak, 1-0 In GPL Week 12 Match
Tarkwa-based Medeama SC today pipped Accra Hearts of Oak, 1-0 at the Akoon Park to claim the 3 maximum points in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
Medeama SC wasted most of the goal-scoring opportunities doing the game.
After an abysmal performance against Karela United over the weekend, Coach Samuel Boadu charged his men to use today's game to revive the team's image.
The Tarkwa side paraded Eric Kwakwa, Richard Boadu, Justice Blay, and Rashid Nortey in the midfield making it difficult for the Continental Club Masters to play the game.
Medeama SC has their solid defender, Daniel Egyin replaced by Baba Musa Abdulai after he was suspended.
Coming into this game as wounded lions, the Phobians were confident of securing the three points but their sloppy and lackadaisical play caused Hearts of Oak to lose its second game in a row.
Goalkeeper Richard Attah was asked to return to the goal post after he lost his position in week 5 to Richmond Ayi.
The Phobians were without their captain Abdul Fatawu Mohammed and star player, Patrick Razak.
Although it was a fierce contest, the first half of the game did not produce much for the supporters to be happy about.
However, the men from Tarkwa found the back of the net through their talesman, Justice Blay in the 50th minute of the game.
Hearts of Oak did all it could but Medeama SC matched them boot-for-booth.
