The first of many chances fell for Great Olympics Kekeli, whose header from close range in the 10th minute struck the post.

Great Olympics were largely dominant in the first half hour of the game, keeping possession and moving the ball around with finesse.

Samartex were not too bad in the first half, but they were left to shoot from long range as the Great Olympics kept it tight at the back.

Despite creating good chances, Great Olympics failed to capitalise as they were held by Samartex going into recess.

Samartex started the second half on the front foot and Ebenezer Ocran came close for his side in the 55th minute, but his effort was saved by Great Olympics goalkeeper Benjamin Asare.

The second half was very cagey, with too many fouls disrupting the flow of the game.

Great Olympics found a bit of the playing rhythm in the late stages of the second but couldn’t create any clear-cut chances to trouble Samartex goalkeeper Kofi Baah.

The game ended scoreless, with both sides sharing the spoils.
