Olympics 4 Power FC 2

At Ho Accra Great Olympics on Wednesday worsened the woes of relegation threatened Power FC by beating them 4-2 in their Onetouch Premier League encounter at the Ho Sports Stadium.

Olympics got the opener in the 22nd minute against the run of play when Emmanuel Clottey sneaked through a sluggish Power defence to fire the ball past Akrafie Joshua in goal for Power.

Five minutes later Olympics Robert Sosu stretched to head home a corner kick sent in by his team-mate Emmanuel Clottey to increase their scores to two.

Power tried to redeem the goals only for Sosu to end the half with the third goal for Olympics with another nice header from Clottey again from a corner kick in the 43rd minute.


After the recess, Power came into the picture as they changed their play pattern and winning all the 50-50 balls but the incursions by the strikers into the goal area of Olympics were hampered by poor finishing up front.

In the 72 minute, Power's substitute Kwabena Yaro wove through the Olympics defence and propelled a good tap to a Daniel Quao's free-kick to pull a goal for his side.

Ten minutes later Olympics Clottey was on target again as he waltzed his way through a porous defence of the Power to blast a swift shot for Olympics fourth goal.

In the dying minutes of the game, Power's Addo Addoquaye was brought down in the Olympics penalty box by Acquah Harrison to give Power a welcomed penalty, which was converted beautifully by Alex Owuah for his team's second goal.
