Club Friendly: Okwahu Untied suffer 2-1 defeat at home to Hearts of Oak

Published on: 29 September 2019

Ghana Premier League giants Accra Hearts of Oak has beaten lower division side Okwahu United 2-1 in a friendly encounter at the Nkawkaw Sports Stadium this afternoon.

The exercise is part of efforts by both camps to prepare their respective teams before the start of the local league later this year.

The two sides went into the first half break having failed to score though there were a lot of chances created. The Phobians who appeared to be the better side were denied on countless occasions by Emmanuel Goza who was in post for the home team.

Having continuously enjoyed the better of possession at the start of the second half, the Rainbow lads from the capital city finally broke the deadlock on the 53rd minute courtesy a penalty kick converted by Christopher Bonney.

That goal kindled some sort of urgency into the play of Okwahu United who quickly mounted pressure on their guests. They pulled level on the 66th minute through MacLean who scored from close range.

From there on the attacking force of Hearts took control of the match and constantly piled pressure on the defense of their opponent.

William Denkyi finally restored the lead for Hearts with six minutes to end proceedings after cleverly beating the offside trap.

The match eventually ended 2-1 in favour of the Accra based club who are preparing for two big matches in October where they will be facing Great Olympics as well as bitterest rivals Asante Kotoko.
