Inter Allies recorded their sixth win of the season beating Elmina Sharks 2-0 on Matchday 18 of the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League.
The “Eleven is To One” kicked off well and came close to scoring twice in the opening ten minutes. Midfielder Martin Antwi managed to past three Sharks players to set up Samuel Bekoe but the youngster’s effort at goal went just inches wide.
A similar chance soon came the way of the hosts at the El-Wak Stadium but this time, Abdul-Nassiru Hamzah failed to pounce early on a pass from Isaac Twum.
On 16 minutes, Hashim Musah registered the opening goal. A foul on Hamzah on the edge of the Sharks penalty area saw Martin Antwi send a teasing one in for the defender to out jump his markers and nod home.
Antwi continued his fine display on the day setting free Chekezie Alozie but the Nigerian failed to make the opportunities count.
Elmina Sharks enjoyed some good spell after Benjamin Boateng was introduced on the hour mark with the trio of Ibrahim Musah, Joseph Mensah and Jospeh Dabitoris stepping up their game in a desperate search for the equalizer.
As they sent many men forward, the visitors got stung at the back. In the 80th minute, Shaibu Haruna sent a long kick in which got flicked by Chekezie Alozie towards the path of Abdul-Nassiru Hamzah. The attacker bulldozed his way through the Sharks defense to cushion the lead with his debut goal for Inter Allies.
Inter Allies are now at 6th position with 25 points from 18 league games.
