Derbies all over the world are supposed to come with some level of competition and excitement and the Accra Derby did not disappoint at all.
The Mantse Derby as it is called, is one of the biggest in Ghana football.
From the prematch to the postmatch conferences and discussions, the euphoria, the braggings and hype are very much deserving of a Derby of such magnitude.
Prior to the match we’ve had players from the Accra Great Olympics team been in the media talking about how they schemed to beat Hearts of Oak and they did live up to the hype.
Gladson Awako and Samuel Ashie-Quaye scored as Great Olympics secured an impressive 2-0 win against Hearts of Oak in the Mantse derby on Saturday evening.
Awako opened the scoring for the Ole Dade boys at the Accra Sports Stadium, brilliantly converting a direct free kick in the 14th minute.
Olympics cushioned their lead minutes later with a stunner from Maxwell Quaye.
The Phobians tried to overturn the result in their favour but ended forcing some good saves from Sead Salifu.
This is the first win Olympics has managed against their Accra rivals since 2004.
It also means that Olympics has ended the Phobians unbeaten run of 10 matches.
The popular team that is qualified with basically anything trending has now moved to claim the third position on the league log with 18, 2 points ahead of Hearts Oak.
Olympics, who is also known with several nickies such as Oly Rosalinda, Oly Dade, Oly Corona, Oly Wash Your Hands and many more has brought great joy to town after silencing the Phobian boys.
