Match Report: Legon Cities 0-1 Great Olympics- Wonder Club Dispatch Royals in Cagey Accra Derby

Great Olympics continued their impressive start to the 2021-22 Ghana Premier Leage season, with a hard-fought 1-0 win over regional rivals Legon Cities at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.

A first half strike from in-form attacker Maxwell Abbey Ashie-Quaye was all the ‘Dade’ boys  needed to triumph over the Royals in a keenly contested Accra derby.

Olympics began the game as the brighter of the two sides, determined to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Their dominance paid off just 20 minutes into the encounter when attacker, Maxwell Abbey Quaye got to the end of a well-worked move to tap home the opener.

Legon Cities gradually put their acts together and went in search of an equalizer.

Winger Nat Akwah came close twice for the home side but could not hit the target on both occasions.

The Royals continued their fominance in the second half but lacked the cutting edge to create problems for Olympics in the attacking third.

Winger Jonah Attuquaye took matters into his own hands to try and conjure some magic for the Royals but his final touches proved problematic.

The experience and cohesion of Great Olympics played a big part as they kept Legon Cities at bay, holding on to a vital win- their second in as many games.

The victory takes Great Olympics to the second position on the league log with 7 point. They are behind Asante Kotoko who are on 9 points.

Goal-scorer Maxwell Abbey Quaye takes his tally to four(4) for the season, making him the leading scorer in the Ghana Premier League.
