Hearts wins Top Four with a game to spare

Accra Hearts of Oak dug deep into their arsenal to find quality to beat Premier League Champions, Aduana Stars 2-0 to wrap up this year’s GHALCA Top Four tournament with a game to spare.

The Phobians scored once in each half to stay atop of the summit on 11 points to ensure their final day meeting with Obuasi Ashgold at the Ohene Djan stadium who are second on six points only remain a mire formality.

Hearts just-found star, Osei Pele proved why he is the most talked about player in the four-team tourney when he put the Phobians ahead within three minutes with an effort reserved for only inform strikers.

Pele received a long supply from the middle, picked his spot in a split second and took a clever step and a swift turn to send his side ahead with a glancing header that left goalkeeper Stephen Adams flat footed and to receive a standing ovation.

The homers will get better after the goal and with very little challenge coming from the visitors’, Hearts ruled the day and should have tripled their lead before the break but for unpardonable misses.

Aduana who were reduced to passengers regardless of the inclusion of former Phobian, Bernard Don Bortey, however, managed to piece a few passes together nearing the recess and forced the homers goalkeeper Sammy Adjei to pull some important saves that will win the supporters over.

The complexion of the game hardly changed after the recess and when Hearts wrapped up victory on the stroke of time through substitute Wilson Andoh who finished off a witty move by Pele, it was obvious the visitors lacked the quality to stop the Phobians.
