GPL: Kotoko, Hearts split points in 1-1 draw in Kumasi

Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak played out an exciting 1-1 draw in the Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Stadium. The Reds were seeking to beat their rivals to secure a double and also to stay close to Hearts at the top of the

table.

However, they had to endure a good start from the visitors who set up their chances down their right side through Isaac Mensah.

But Kotoko rode the storm and put themselves together.

On 17 minutes, they were rewarded with the breakthrough.

Atta Kusi turned round close to Hearts’ penalty box and fired a volley towards Soulama Abdoulaye.

The Burkinabe goalie parried the shot well but Kwame Boateng appeared and slotted home the rebound past Abdoulaye at his near post.

The goalie would have been disappointed as his error in the first leg of the match in Accra gave Kotoko a 1-0 win.

Hearts tried finding a response but efforts from Patrick Razak and Isaac Mensah were off target.

In the second half, both teams looked even in terms of possession and chances but it was the visitors who got the only goal of the half.

A Kotoko pass was intercepted and when the ball got to Isaac Mensah, he found Patrick Razak in the Kotoko box with a lovely pass.

Razak controlled the pass with left foot and sent the ball past Ernest Sowah with his right foot to level the tie.

Ibrahim Musah and Paul Acquah had opportunities to win the match for Hearts but they missed them and the match ended even.

The result gives Hearts 38 points at the top of the league table with Kotoko five points behind in 5th position.

In the other matches of the Ghana Premier League, AshGold drew 1-1 with Dwarfs, Aduana beat Liberty Professionals 1-0, Berekum Chelsea beat New Edubiase 2-1, Techiman City were 2-0 winners over Inter Allies, WAFA beat Bechem United 2-0.
