Elmina Sharks drew 1-1 with Hearts of Oak in this match day eight fixture in the ongoing Ghana Premier League at the Nduom Sports Stadium.

Sharks were hoping to return to winning ways following their match day seven defeat to Karela United in Ayinese.

The home side had to finish the game with 10-men as Benjamin Tetteh was shown the exit after picking two yellow cards in the game.

Sharks dominated the first half and deservedly found the back of the net through James Bissue.

Umar Manaf made a beautiful attempt to score but his effort went over the frame in the 17th minute.

Elmina Sharks would hit back three minutes later through Benjamin Tweneboah but he shot wide.

Hearts of Oak continued their push for the equalizer before the break but Elmina Sharks thwarted their efforts with some convincing defending.

Left-back Raddy Ovouka sent a perfectly weighted pass to Daniel Afriyie but a timely clearance by the sharks defenders denied him of a goal.

At the other side, Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Richmond Ayi showed quick anticipation to prevents sharks from doubling their lead.

Just before the break, Justice Ato Mensah narrowly missed an empty goal.

Referee Benjamin Kwame Sefa waived play to continue after Sharks talisman Benjamin Tweneboah went down inside the box.

Tweneboah got booked for a yellow after protesting to the centre referee.

Hearts of Oak got the needed equalizer through Victor Aidoo who headed in a cross from Fatawu Mohammed.

Both sides share the points after the game.
