Centenary Celebrations Gone Wrong as Enugu Rangers Spoil Hearts of Oak’s Party


Accra Hearts of Oak’s centenary celebrations ended in the most disappointing of ways. Enugu Rangers of Nigeria stung the celebrants with a 2-1 win in their own backyard in a friendly game to climax the anniversary.

After a balanced first half, wing back Bobie Ansah’s poor recovery gave Enugu’s Razak Adegbote the chance to exploit the gap in Hearts of Oak’s lateral defense. Central defender Kofi Agyare was unable to contain Razak who blasted a thundering shot pass goalkeeper Laud Quartey.

Even after Enugu’s opener, Hearts of Oak fans were still hopeful of winning their centenary game as their team seemed to be playing well. Against the run of play,  John Aguda struck a stunning 25-yard shot which beat Laud Quartey and left a bile in the mouths of the teaming  Accra Hearts of Oak fans.

Referee William Agbovi awarded Hearts of Oak a rather controversial late penalty. Even though Uriah Asante was able to score from the spot, the ‘Never Say Die’ spirit of the Hearts of Oak had been doused by the Rangers from Nigeria.

Although a rather disappointing anticlimax to their Hearts celebration, a reality check was perhaps all Hearts of Oak needed.
