Medeama take top spot after humiliating Hearts of Oak 5-1 in Accra


Medeama SC climbed to first place on the Ghana Premier League table after walloping Hears of Oak 5-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Yellow and Mauves who lost narrowly in the reverse fixture were poised to claim the maximum points and fly up the table following Aduana’s slip on Saturday.

Derrick Fordjour fired the visitors into the lead in the 17th minute with a superb drive a few meters away from the vertex of the box which bounced before settling in the net but the Phobians quickly leveled through  Ibrahim Salifu’s spot-kick.

Medeama would however add two goals before halftime to secure a comfortable lead thanks to penalty expert Vincent Atingah who converted from six yards and Jonathan Sowah got his fourth goal in three matches.

After several attempts to minimise the deficit, Hearts failed to find the back of the net as Sowah added another goal in the 85th to shatter the hopes of the Phobians.

The result means Medeama will now occupy the top spot for the first time this season with 53 points while Aduana now drop to second with a point less. Bechem United stay in third place with 51 points with three matches to end the season.
