Karela United held league leaders Asante Kotoko to a 1-1 draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Thursday evening.
Karela United had the advantage through Andoh, but they couldn't keep it until Frank Mbella's goal equalized the score.
The Porcupine Warriors, who were looking for a crucial home win against Karela, were highly aggressive, attacking from all sides in an attempt to break the game's draw, but although outplaying the visitors, their efforts were in vain.
The Anyinase-based team maintained a tight defensive line until they were able to break past Kotoko's defense and break the game's tie.
After equalizing 45 minutes before halftime, Frank Mbella Etuoga, the Ghana Premier League's top scorer this season, increased his tally to 14 goals.
Ismail Ganiyu, a defender for the Porcupine Warriors, was sent off earlier in the game, forcing the hosts to make tactical alterations in formation to contain the visitors after the break.
With 10 men, Asante Kotoko pushed hard to double their lead, but Karela kept their lines, followed instructions, and concluded the first half with a draw.
