Ashanti Gold defeated Asante Kotoko 3-1 in the semi-finals of the Tier Two Competition of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee (NC) at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

Kotoko opened the scoring in the second minute of the first half through striker Naby Keita from a swift passing down the right flanks.

Ashanti Gold responded with an equalizer from Ali Muftawu few minutes after Kotoko’s goal to cut short their jubilation.

The Obuasi based club took over the midfield with some delightful passes that kept the Kotoko players drawing back constantly to defend their post.

Ashanti Gold was rewarded with a second goal from Emmanuel Owusu for their hard work before the half hour mark, after a one-two touches in the midfield that split open the Kotoko defense, which left Kotoko goalie Danlad Ibrahim helpless to end an entertaining first half.

Kotoko started the second half with more purposeful play in search of an equalizer but their plans were cut short when in the 55th minute Mark Agyekum headed from close range to make it three for Ashanti Gold.

Kotoko went to sleep after as the Obuasi club showed more purpose and willingness to win the day, by stringing decent and delightful passes together to the admiration of the teaming fans.

Kotoko came into the game in the final quarter of the match but their efforts couldn’t yield any results as the game ended 3:1 in favour of Ashanti Gold.

Ashanti Gold has thus, booked a final berth against Nzema Kotoko in the tier two competition as Nzema Kotoko beat Unistar Academy by 2:1 in the other semi-final match at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium as Kotoko has also booked a final against Karela United in the Tier one final come Sunday, June 23, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
