Accra-based outfit Great Olympics brought to a halt their three home game winless streak at the Accra Sports Stadium on Tuesday afternoon following their 3-1 victory over the renascent King Faisal.
Both teams came into the game on the back of historic wins over the weekend following wins against Accra Hearts of Oak and Berekum Chelsea by Olympics and King Faisal respectively.
However, it was the home side who stood tall when it mattered the most efforts on Tuesday.
Olympics had to play the game without midfield maestro and poster boy Gladson Awako, who has become the toast of many followers of the local game.
Goals from Charles Danso Otu, Samuel Ashie Quaye and Michael Yeboah proved to be the defining moments of the game though the Insha Allah boys mustered a solitary strike from the boots of Frimpong Boateng which proved to be the consolation goal for their efforts.
Olympics, who are seeking to challenge for the league title this season have raised their game in the last few matches under the technical tutelage of former national stars Godwin Attram and Yaw Preko.
The home side’s opener in the 34th minute was Danso’s second goal of the campaign at home this campaign.
Ashie Quaye doubled the lead after recess before Boateng pulled one back for the Kumasi-based club.
King Faisal’s hopes were dashed with nine minutes to go when Yeboah restored the two-goal margin as the Dade Boys picked all three points at stake.
Yaw Preko’s side will now move into the second position, with just goal difference separating them from league leaders Karela United, who have a game in hand against Berekum Chelsea.
