Ashantigold beat Kotoko

Ashantigold SC defeated Asante Kotoko 3-2 in the second leg of the ‘Golden Clash’ at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Sunday.

A last minute strike by Richard Djorbi from the penalty spot ensured the ‘Aboakese’ lads avenged their 3-2 loss to the Porcupine Warriors in the first leg encounter.

Ashgold went ahead after winger Shafiu Mumumi opened the scoring with a delightful strike.

Mumuni doubled his side lead few minutes later with another thunderous strike, but a late first half gasp by Kotoko’s Obed Owusu ensured a slim advantage as the game went on recess.

Sogne Yacouba grabbed the equaliser with a superb finish.

But a late penalty awarded Ashantigold by Referee Latif Qadri, saw Ashantigold’s Ivorian attacker Djorbi step up and fired home from the penalty spot to ensure victory for Ashantigold. –GNA
