GHPL WEEK 7: Hearts Of Oak Thrash Bechem United

Accra Hearts Of Oak thumped Bechem 6-1 on matchday 7 of the Ghana Premier League to record their second successive victory.

Serbian Tactician Kosta Papic made three changes to the team that started in their 2-1 victory over King Faisal. William Denkyi was handed his first start of the season while Barnie returned to the team after his heroics at the just ended WAFU Tournament.

Hearts of Oak were dominant in the first half as characteristic of the team since Papic took over. The highlight of the first half was the glorious big chance missed by Barnie after he was beautifully put through on goal by Manaf. The Phobians exerted more control after a red card was shown to Emmanuel Asante,

The Phobians turn up the heat in the second half with 5 goals to inflict the first defeat on Bechem United. Manaf opened the floodgates in the 53rd minute. Victor Aidoo followed with a brace and were 3-0 up in the 78th minute.

Papic’s men were not yet done as substitute Ansah converted from the spot before Bechem pulled one back through Adu Kwabena. Hearts immediately responded as  Mamane added the 5th 3mins later before Afutu wrapped the afternoon with the 6th in added time

Hearts of Oak now lie 2nd on the league log with 11points.
