Kotoko avenge WAFA loss

Kumasi Asante Kotoko beat WAFA 2-1 as the curtains of the Ghana Premiership rolled down in their week 30 clash at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium yesterday.

It was one match that saw Assin Fosu-based Referee Prince Amoah not being economical with his cards as he flashed two red cards to send off the home team’s Osei Agyemang in the 80th minute and the visitors’ Abdul Wahab Ibrahim on the 89th minute mark.

While Osei’s was a second bookable offence, Abdul was carded for challenging the referee over an infringement.

Kotoko opened the scoreline in the 41st minute through Bennett Ofori in a goal-mouth melee, ending the half.

WAFA came into the second half with aggressiveness and 16 minutes into the game cancelled the lead when Charles Boateng ghosted away from his markers and beautifully lobbed the ball over the keeper, Felix Anna Annan.

The Red Army fought hard to avenge their first leg defeat to please the few supporters around and got the winner in the 68th minute when Akwasi Nti headed home a volley which led to the replacement of keeper Razak Abalora, following a clash with the scorer.
