Accra Hearts of Oak suffered a shock 3-1 defeat to AshantiGold in their first Ghana Premier League appearance at new home grounds, the Cape Coast Stadium on Saturday.
James Akaminko registered the opening goal for the visitors in the 9th minute before Amos Addai doubled the lead on the hour mark.
Hearts sought to stage a comeback with Joseph Esso pulling one back in the 75th minute but Shafiu Mumuni shattered the Phobians’ hopes with a sucker punch a minute from time.
AshantiGold’s Richard Osei Agyemang also won the NASCO man-of-the-match award of the game.
In the other Saturday kickoff, Ebusua Dwarfs travelled to hold Wa All Stars to a pulsating goalless draw at the Malik Jabir Park. All Stars’s Isahaku Zakaria was adjudged NASCO man-of-the-match.
AshantiGold now lead the Premier League log with six points with Dwarfs sitting second on four points. Six other match day two games come up on Sunday.
