Great Olympics nearly took the lead in the 81st minute after Awako once again teed up striker Razak Yussif but his eventual shot went narrowly wide.

Legon Cities were denied a penalty in the late stages of the game when goalkeeper Ernest Sowah brought down Abdul Karim but referee waived their appeal.
