Samartex hold RTU in Division One League Super Cup


Samartex 1996 held Real Tamale United to a 1-1 stalemate on match day four of the Division One League Super Cup.

The Sameraboi lads who lost their first match of the campaign to Accra Lions went into the game aiming for all points to keep their semifinal aspirations intact. They were however stunned as early as the 14th minute of the game when Stephen Dankwa Badu netted the opener for Real Tamale United.

Dankwa Badu weaved his way through the Samartex defence before slotting home the opener.

The tempo of the game changed immediately after the goal as Samartex took the game to their opponents with some lovely inter-positional play and imposing football.

The pressure paid off as Samartex scored the equalizer as Emmanuel Adu Siaw connected from a lovely set piece for the equalizer.

The two teams improved tremendously in the second half but failed to take their chances as the game drew to a close without a goal in the second half.

The result takes Real Tamale United to the top of the table with 4 points following their opening day win against Berekum Arsenal.
