At the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday, Asante Kotoko mounted a valiant comeback to defeat Aduana Stars 2-1.

The league leaders made a good start, and after striker Isaac Mintah scored the game’s first goal to give them the lead, it seemed as though they would continue to pull away from the competition at the top of the standings. Stephen Mukwala of Uganda, a striker, scored an equalizer for Kotoko in the 37th minute.

Although the teams were tied at halftime, Kotoko came out of the break with more fervor and purpose. In the 48th minute, Kotoko took the lead for the first time in the game thanks to a goal by Ivorian midfielder Serge Zeze.

Aduana made an effort to tie the score, but Kotoko held on to their lead to secure a crucial victory that maintains them in the title fight. The gap between Kotoko and Aduana Stars, who are currently fifth in the standings, and the top team in the league has shrunk to three points.

Other league games on Sunday included a late 1-0 victory by Berekum Chelsea over Bibiani GoldStars to complete a winning streak. Ali Huzaf and Godfred Atuahene scored goals as Dreams FC defeated Samartex FC by a score of 2-0 to return to winning ways.

Great Olympics were dramatically denied a victory as Tamale City equalized in the 96th minute to force a 1-1 draw. It was the first Olympic game at their new home, Sogakope’s WAFA Park. Legon Cities, meanwhile, improved their chances of surviving with a key away victory over Karela United, who have since slipped into the relegation zone.

Finally, Samuel Ofori’s late penalty helped Nsoatreman defeat Hearts of Oak with a commanding victory.
