Last minute goal from Richmond Lamptey seals Asante Kotoko win over Aduana stars

This match nicknamed by spectators as the clash of the titans definitely promised to be an exciting one.

Kotoko being at the first position, and Aduana stars at the second position in the race for the prestigious Ghana premier league title.

The build up to the clash of the Titans was an intense one, with Asante Kotoko hoping to maintain their supremacy.

The match was played in Dormaa Ahenkro, the home of Aduana stars.

Asante Kotoko had not won a match there against Aduana stars in a period of over 10 seasons and were hoping to break this streak.

Both teams played a 4-3-3 formation.

Kotoko kept on pressing the defense of Aduana stars throughout the match, although Aduana stars played confidently and were indeed a tough opponent for the Kotoko team.

The first goal entailed a perfectly executed corner kick from Ibrahim Imoro, followed by a fantastic header by the Kotoko striker G. Omgba in the 19th minute.

The first half ended one goal to nil in favor of Kotoko.

Asante Kotoko goal keeper, Danlad, was forced to make a few saves as Aduana stars mounted some pressure on Kotoko in the second half of the match.

However, the porosity of the Aduana stars defense was evident once again in the 94th minute, when Richmond Lamptey made a clinical finish.

The match ended 2 goals to nil in favor of Kotoko.

Indeed a fabulous performance by Kotoko.
