Great Olympics boost survival chances with win over Bolga All Stars

Accra, Accra Great Olympics boosted their chances of survival in the Ghana Premier League with a convincing 4-2 win over already relegated Bolga All Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Olympics started the game brightly and got the lead in the early minutes of the game when former Asante Kotoko forward Kwame Boateng opened the scoring in the 10th minute.

Godwin Attram’s men continued with their dominance in the opening minutes and were rewarding with a penalty when Kwame Boateng was brought down in the box. Maxwell Quaye converted the resultant penalty in the 16th minute to make it two for the home side.

Olympics then relaxed and allowed Bolga All Stars to dictate the pace after the second goal. Bolga All Stars combine beautifully in the middle with Giyasu Ibrahim, Mohaamed Naeem and Imoro Ibrahim being the chief tormentors.

Bolga All Stars subsequently created several decent goal scoring opportunities but were only able to show why they are the least scoring side in the league with their profligacy at goal.

All Stars after wasting many goal scoring chances managed to pull one back on the stroke of half time in the 45th minute.

With the few Olympics supporters at the stadium consistently shouting on their players for the below par output, the team improved their game after recess, resulting in Maxwell Quaye getting his second goal of the day in the 61st minute.

Quaye was then pulled out for Kaplaka Tiame, who immediately registered his name on the score sheet after tapping home a Kwame Boateng pass from close range in the 85th minute.

It only took a blink of an eye before Mohammed Naeem responded with a fine finish from the box in the 86th minute for Wa All Stars.

The victory has enhanced Olympics survival chances as fellow strugglers Inter Allies lost their game 1-3 to Ebusua Dwarfs.
