Second half goals from Patrick Odoom, Abdul Sawah Yahaya and Obed Asamoah Ackah propelled Hasaacas to come back from a 2 goal conceded in the first half to beat Skyy FC 3–2 at the Sekondi Gyandu Park.
It was fiery last 45 minutes performance from the Giants overturning a 2–0 deficit in the first half to produce a phenomenal second half performance which saw the Giants run away with a 3–2 win.
How we lined up
Coach Joseph Agyemang commenced the game handing full debut to Paul Aidoo who partnered Theophilus Nana Awortwe in the middle of the park; the two were flanked by Bernard Ebo Eshun and Daniel Addo on the right and left respectively.
The midfield saw John Komson, Abdul Sawah Yahaya and Alex Kofi Murphy forming the trio while Patrick Odoom, Kwabena Baidoo and Issaka Abubakari slotted in attack.
Hasaacas had a fine start which saw Patrick Odoom stealing a loose ball inside the defence and getting into the box with a fine control only to curl and loose ball which was easily picked by Nimo on the second try.
There on, Skyy FC began showing dominance and deservedly went ahead twice in the game through before the 35th minute; first an easy tap-in via a cross from the left side of our defence and again similar move.
On the blink of the first half whistle, Theophilus Nana Awortwe was sent off and the job became harder than necessary.
As tough as it got the team showed great fighting spirit in the half which seemed like there will be Skyy FC will be adding to their tally.
Hasaacas were rather toughened by the process, made the most of the rains that delayed the second half and turned the pitch a bit soggy.
First it was Patrick Odoom who was tricked inside the penalty box – and when Alex Kofi Murphy stepped up to take the kick, the goal post turned a second goalkeeper to deny him the goal.
The moment turned the entire facility in a state of pandemonium and yet again Abubakari Issaka suffered similar faith and this time, Patrick Odoom took matters into his own hands and planted a well waited strike blind-eyed the goal keeper.
Coach Joseph Agyemang introduced Edmund Ampofo and Obed Asamoah Ackah to beef up the attacking machinery; leaving a three back, three midfield and three attackers.
Yahaya Abdul Sawah scored his debut goal for Hasmal when he rebounded a shot inside the penalty box to send Hasmal level.
Obed Asamoah Ackah put the icing on the cake and what was the match winner when he planted a shot inside the penalty box beyond the full-stretched arm of the goalkeeper.
It ended 3-2 in our favour. And Hasmal has now stayed unbeaten for the last 5 games.
