GPL wk5: Hearts hammer Chelsea to move up on the log
Defending League Champions Accra Hearts of Oak have beaten Berekum Chelsea by two goals to nil at the Cape Coast Stadium in an outstanding match to move up on the League log.
Hearts could not honour their week 5 match in the Ghana Premier League against Berekum Chelsea because of their African club campaign.
Hearts kicked start the match on a brighter note with an early incursion and were lucky in the 19th minute after Kofi Kordzi curled the ball into the back of the net from a nice build up which started from the center circle through the left-wing before getting to Kordzi in the 18-yard box for the opener.
Relentless Hearts began the second half from where they left it off and got the much-needed second goal in the 53rd minute and a brace for Kofi Kordzi.
In a similar fashion as the first goal, the build-up started from the center circle through the left-wing, and a beautiful cross was sent into the 18 yards, and stunningly headed into the net by Kofi Kordzi.
Before this match, Hearts was languishing on the 13th position on the log with 10 points. But this win means they are moving up on the log with 13points and two other outstanding matches.
