Hasaacas suffered first defeat of the season at a grossly intimidating atmosphere created by fans of Samartex 1996 FC in a show of total disregard for the Covid-19 directives by the Ghana Football Association.
Still our men are yet to concede from an open play in a commanding 720 minutes – a clear show of class and command at the back.
A fine atmosphere pleasant enough for a football match met strangely unconventional style….
On the field, the mindset, the sheer will and the knowledge from the bench set us clearly apart in show of aggression and display.
The Giants took the game to the half of the opponents just when Referee George Amoah from Bogoso blew his whistle to kick start the game.
Chances fell on the paths of both teams; first Emmanuel Ebahoah couldn’t well control his pass inside the box and Justus Torsutsey’s strike was handled with ease.
On the other hand the brightest chance was the 45+4 minutes penalty that was awarded Benjamin Yorke, the attacker won the battle of wills and sent Anthony Brebo to the ghost land.
The second half saw Hasmal push Samartex to their own half. Philip Flamini who emerged as the eventual MotM saw his two penalty appeals given blind eyes by the center Referee, George Amoah.
Again, Sanah was played through expertly by Eric Wonkyi Arthur, setting him one on one with the goalkeeper – his effort to dummy the goalkeeper was well grabbed.
Coach Capito threw in more attacking options and dominant Hasmal went ahead in search for the game’s equaliser; Eduku, Lamptey and Asare were brought on in search of the leveler.
It ended all points lost at Samartex SC.
What it means
Hasmal will lag 3 points on the log and there’s everything to play for with 22 more games in the offing.
Hasmal will return to Sekondi Gyandu Park to play host to Wassaman United on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
