Match report: Kotoko end winless run, Hearts-Liberty share spoils


Baba Mahama was the pollster boy at the Tema Park as he secured Kotoko’s first victory in 9 premiership games.

The porcupines’ warriors were determined to end the run of poor matches and it was evident right from the 1st minute halting Tem Youth play and forcing them to their half.

It was even-fought ground up till the second half when Kotoko instill purposefulness and Baba Mahama was on hand to slot home the winner.

The win is the first of Kotoko’s in 9 consecutive league games.

Hearts of Oak run of wins hit the rocks at the Accra Sports Stadium as Liberty Professional counted for them in 1-1 pulsating encounter.

Hearts had whipped the Dansoman lads in the corresponding fixture but the Phobians had to fight back through Vincent Atinga in the closing of the first half after Benjamin Eshun had shot Liberty into the lead earlier.

Both sides pushed for the winner in the second after a stretch of end to end action but it was not to be as they settled for point each.

Elsewhere at the Tarkwa T&A Park it was goals galore as Medeama SC walloped Bolga All Stars by five goals to 1.

Striker Bernard Ofori  became the first player to score hat-trick in the second round of the Ghana Premier League with Latif Salifu and  Meshack Odoom all scoring a goal each to give the Yellow and Mauves side a commanding 5-1 victory over relegation threatening Bolga All Stars side.
