GPL Report: WAFA 1-1 Hearts of Oak- Academy boys extend unbeaten home run against Phobians


Hearts of Oak’s frustrating start to the new season continued with another uninspiring performance away to WAFA SC on Friday.

The Premier League Champions were held to a pulsating 1-1 draw at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope.

After the recess, Sampson Agyepong restored parity for the host on the hour mark.

The youngster registered his 4th premier league goal in 29 league games for WAFA.
