Hasaacas FC produced another trademark performance against Kumasi-based Future Stars snatching all the points with a 3-0 score-line.
The in-form 15-year-old Kwabena Baidoo got Hasmal to a flying start after pouncing on an Issaka Abubakari strike to rebound it beyond the full stretched arm of the goalkeeper, afterwards it was all Hasmal as Alex Kofi Murphy hit brace to send the game beyond the Division One League newbies.
It was an incredulous attacking display from Coach Joseph Agyemang’s men; Patrick Odoom, Issaka Abubakari who was having his full debut and Kwabena Baidoo firmed up an unimpeachable attacking display.
Patrick Odoom was played through beautifully by Issaka Abubakari and as he reached a shooting point with the goal net at his mercy, he was impeded by the goalkeeper and the Referee had little to no chance to point to the spot.
Alex Kofi Murphy made no mistake as he stood up and won the battle of wills to blind-eye the goalkeeper to give Hasmal the breathing space.
From recess Alex Kofi Murphy again doubled his goal tally for the game as he well controlled a pass from Kwabena Baidoo and released a well timed shot which went straight into the yawning net to give Hasmal a 3-0 win.
Coach Joseph Agyemang made two changes from the squad that secured a point away to Unistar Academy on match day 16.
Bernard Ebo Eshun and Obed Asamoah Ackah who were serving a ban for card accumulation were replaced by Issaka Abubakari and Daniel Addo who made a good advertisement of the opportunity.

Abdul Sawah Yahaya and Alex Kofi Murphy were in the middle of the pitch – in attack were Kwabena Baidoo, Issaka Abubakari and Patrick Otoo.
