Defending champions, Asante Kotoko, put up a spirited performance as they thrashed visiting Wa All Stars 3-1 in their First Capital Plus Premier League Match-Day 26 clash at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi.
It was in-form 17-year old Dauda Mohammed who set the tone for the demolition exercise, opening the scoring in the 11th minute to put pressure on their opponents.
The Porcupine Warriors, buoyed by their recent victories against AshGold and Hearts of Oak, probed for more goals, but found it difficult to penetrate the All Stars’ backline to end the first session.
The visitors commenced the second half on a serious note and fetched the equalizer on 47th minute as Kweku Anuandzie, who was unmarked intercepted a pass and let go a thunderbolt to beat goalie Ofori Antwi.
Kotoko marshaled more men in attack and in the course of the game snatched the second goal in the 55th minute courtesy Ahmed Toure.
The Ivorian import connected home a Jackson Owusu feeble pass in the 18-yard box as the Porcupine Warriors broke loose in a counter-attack.
Obed Owusu sealed victory for the homers in 66th minute with a incisive shot to beat goalie Baba Musah, who parried into play a Toure well-taken shot from 20 about meters. GNA
