Accra, Jan. 25, GNA
– Accra Great Olympics recorded their second win of the season when they
defeated Inter Allies 1-0 in a match-day six encounter played at the Accra
Sports Stadium on Saturday.

A solitary strike
from Philip Nii Cudjoe Sackey on the half hour mark was enough for the Wonder
Club, as they climbed to 11th position  on the league log with Inter Allies dropping
into the relegation zone.

Great Olympics
started the game on the front foot dominating play in every area of the field
and created some good chances but Inter Allies goalie George Apronti delivered
some superb saves to deny the home side.

Apronti after his
impressive display in the opening minutes of the half suffered an injury in the
20th minute mark and was replaced by Augustus Ofori Nyarko.

The Wonder Club
deservedly took the lead on the 30th minute mark through Philip Nii
Cudjoe Sackey whose ferocious strike went past Inter Allies substitute goalie.

Inter Allies
responded very well after going a goal down and Kingsley Braye could have
restored parity for the away side but his effort came off the goal post with
Olympics goalie Joshua Opoku beaten.

Inter Allies captain
Victorien Adje Adebayor had a glorious opportunity to draw his side level on
the stroke of half time but his shot narrowly went wide.

The second half
begun with Inter Allies playing some delightful football as they searched for
the equalizer but the Olympics defence stood firm.

The game saw some
good attacking incursions from both sides but Inter Allies come close past the
hour mark but once some heroic defending from Great Olympics kept their lead

The pressure from
Inter Allies was relentless but Great Olympics held on to their lead to secure all
three points.
