2021/22 GPL: RTU stun Asante Kotoko, Hearts of Oak held by Elmina Sharks – Match week 25 review
Real Tamale United (RTU) stunned league leaders Asante Kotoko in match week 25 of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.
RTU sealed a 2-1 win at the Aliu Mahama Stadium to condemn the Porcupine Warriors to their 3rd defeat of the season.
Ronald Frimpong gave RTU the lead after converting from the spot in the 26th minute before Victor Aidoo increased the advantage for the home side as he headed home a throw-in from the right side.
Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim misjudged his run as Aidoo soared high to head home the match-winner in the 85th minute before Frank Etrouga pulled one back for Kotoko.
Elsewhere in Accra, Samuel Inkoom scored a world-class free-kick as Hearts of Oak threw away an early lead to draw 1-1 against Elmina Sharks at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The former Dnipro right back, who was making his third straight appearance for the defending league champions, curled in a sumptuous free-kick in the opening minute of the game to give Hearts a 1-0 lead.
The goal gave Hearts belief as they kept dictating the pace of the game. But it was Sharks who showed desire and committed men forward for the equalizer as Michael Asamoah blasted home a very beautiful team to give them the equalizer in the 28th minute.
Two-time champions Aduana Stars failed to pick all three points as they slipped to a goalless draw against AshantiGold SC at the Agyemang Badu Park.
