KPANDO Heart of Lions yesterday put up a stirring performance to beat Kumasi Asante Kotoko 3-1 in the opening game of the second round of the First Capital Plus Premier League at the Kpando Park.
It was a sweet revenge for the Voltarians who suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat to the Asanteman Warriors in the last game of the first round.
Yesterday’s defeat was the first for new coach David Duncan.
Muntaka Osumanu opened the scoring for the Lions in the 26th minute and redoubled the advantage moments later through Isaac Quansah before Ansah Acquah made it three in the second half.
Kotoko’s Ahmed Toure pulled a consolation for his side through a penalty in the dying moments of the game.
At the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium, Richard Kingston saved a penalty to snatch a goalless result for visiting Accra Great Olympics against New Edubiase FC. The result means, Oly coach Yaw Acheampong is yet to lose a game since taking over the club.
Wa All Stars were also inspiring at home as they beat WAFA 2-0 at the Wa park, while home team Sekondi Hasaacas fetched inspiration from their pet crowd to post a vintage 1-0 win over Bechem United.
Meanwhile, the epic league game between Accra Hearts of Oak and Obuasi Ashantigold has been rescheduled to the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
The postponement was to make way for the Hearts-Esperance CAF Confederation Cup game which was played at the weekend.
