RTU Rout Hasaacas

Tamale (N/R): Real Tamale United (RTU) routed visiting Sekondi Hasaacas 4-0 in their match played at the Kaladan park. The visitors initially made things a bit tough for RTU, who had to wait until the 33rd minute before centre forward Abass Iddrisu could score the opener for them. RTU kept on piling pressure on the Hasmal boys, and six minutes later a harmless shot at goal in Hasaacas' vital area beat a host of defenders, including goalie George Owu, into the net for RTU's second goal. Hasaacas pulled out goalkeeper Owu for Yusif Danlad to take over after the recess, but it was still RTU, who dominated the game and netted two more goals. Inside right Alex Donkor made it 3-0 in the 65th minute when his shot deflected on the body of a Hasmal defender into the net. Hasaacas were unlucky to get a goal in the 75th minute when inside right Polo Mohammed's header narrowly missed the post. They again messed up another chance when they failed to utilise an indirect free-kick in RTU's goal area in the 85th minute. Abass Iddrisu sealed the doom of the visitors with a beautiful goal in extra time. He beat a defender on the run and shot past on-rushing goalie. MORE.../
