Accra Great Olympics sparked up the ninth round of games with an impressive output to record a 2-0 win over rivals Inter Allies at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday afternoon.
Despite missing out six vital points to Aduana Stars and Ashgold on Match Day 7 and 8 respectively, the ‘Dade’ boys bounced back to winning ways to record their fourth victory of the campaign with a fine start and created the best of chances in the early minutes of the game.
Pilling pressure on the home side, Olympics grabbed an early lead on the 9th minute through Maxwell Nii Abbey who found the back of the net via a spot kick.
Minutes later, Allies settled and responded with two decent efforts through Mohammed Zakari and Nafiu Sulemana but was well dealth by goalkeeper Saed Salifu.
Kingsley Baye came close for Inter Allies only to see his strike blocked by the backline of Olympics who went into the first half break leading by a goal.
Michael Gyamerah, Emmanuel Adjetey replaced Alex Aso and Fard Ibrahim for Inter Allies as they came back stronger in the second department of the game.
Midfielder Richard Lamptey blasted wide from a free kick in search of the equaliser.
However, on the 80th minute, Olympics doubled their lead through penalty kick as Maxwell Nii Abbey sent goalkeeper Rashid Seidu the wrong way to register his brace and fourth of the season.
Goalkeeper Saed Salifu denied Richmond Lamptey with a superb save minutes after the second goal to keep Olympics in lead.
The visitors held on to the two goals advantage to move to fourth place on the league log with 14 points in nine games.
The win becomes Yaw Preko’s first after he took over from Annor Walker who is recuperating from a short illness.
