Two goals from Joseph Paintsil and Ibrahim were enough to settle 2-1 victory for Tema Youth against Hearts of Oak in the 7th week at the Tema Park.
Hearts of Oak were down as early as the 7th minutes when the defenders miscalculated the runs of Joseph Paintsil , to allow him drew the first blood.
Tema Youth made the most of the first half, pushing the Phobians into their half but it was not to be as the Hearts of Oak seized the duel in the early minutes of the second half.
Skipper Thomas Abbey was on hand to tap home the equalizer from a neat cross in the 48th minutes.
The home intensified their play and in the 77th, Ibrahim Yussif capitalized on poor goalkeeping to cushion Tema Youth’s lead. Benjamin Mensah watched the ball skipped through his hands.
The result leaves the Phobians wondering as they face their arch rival Kumasi Asante in a crunch encounter on Sunday.
