Sampson Eduku and Abeiku Ainooson produced the goals as Sekondi Hasaacas continued the winning run with a 2-1 win against Nzema Kotoko at the Sekondi Sports Stadium.
10 men Hasmal pounded the surface to pull a 2-1 win against Nzema Kotoko in front of an appreciable spectatorship.
Coach Joseph Agyemang named an unchanged eleven; Labanti, Nyame and Awortwe were the trio in the middle and ahead of them were Flamini, Sam and Eduku.
The backline had Ainooson and Egyir in the middle and flanked by Asare and Eshun on left and right. In goal was Michael Kwofie.
The pile up of controversies made for a tensed game, but it was Hasaacas that showed clearer intent early in the game.
Sampson Eduku opened the score cards in the first half with just 16 minutes showing on the clock.
Hasaacas pushed for the cushioning, but efforts from Flamini and Eduku proved futile.
After recess, the Nzema Kotoko approached the game with a renewed strength and had the equaliser through Akese Akese, whose header had the needed power to elude Michael Kwofie.
Theophilus Nyame was shown the exit after a reckless tackle in the middle of the park.
With the scoreline at 1-1 it was Abeiku Ainooson who powered a close shot to ensure Hasaacas restored the lead.
Despite the fourth official showing 10 additional minutes, Hasaacas held on and ended the game 2-1.
The Giants will go again against Proud United at the Sekondi Sports Stadium on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.
