Great Olympics return to Ghana Premier League

The Wonder Club are back in the Ghanaian elite division after going on relegation in 2010 after beating Tema Youth in the play-off

Accra Great Olympics have returned to the Ghana top-flight league after beating Tema Youth 2-1 at the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday.

Tema Youth took an early lead through Isaac Nyarko when he latched onto a long cross from Nicholas Odjer in the 19th minute but the 'Wonder' club drew even three minutes to end the first half when Razak Tahiru connected a Mohammed Awal's teasing cross.

Olympics continued from where they ended in the first half, mounting pressure on Tema Youth and it eventually yielded results in the 50th minute. Midfielder Joseph Armah headed in with a powerful effort to send his supporters wild in jubilation.

Tema Youth officials invaded the pitch twice to boycott the game after an alleged poor officiating from referee Joseph Lamptey and his assistants but bankroller and chairman of King Faisal Alhaji Karim Grusah intervened for the game to continue.

Olympics who were relegated in 2010 beat Istanbul 2-1, Okwawu United 1-0 en route to the final game to beat Tema Youth 2-1 to automatically book their place in next season's campaign.
