Asante Kotoko, the defending champions, defeated Nsoatreman 2-1 in their pivotal match of the 2022–23 Ghana Premier League (GPL) to earn their first three points.
At Baba Yara Stadium, Stephen Amankona gave the Porcupine Warriors the lead in the fifteenth minute.
After being fouled in the box, the winger was awarded a penalty, and he converted it.
Mukwala, a Ugandan immigrant for Kotoko, was wasteful up front and had a few opportunities to score during the match.
The away squad, Mohammed Gargo’s group, hardly produced a shot in the contest.
Following the break, Asante Kotoko’s Isaac Oppong doubled the lead with a spectacular solo goal in the 47th minute.
Philip Ofori scored a consolation goal for Nsoatreman five minutes later off of a cross that was blasted in after Danlad Ibrahim failed to clear his lines.
After two league games, Asante Kotoko now has four points thanks to the victories.
On Sunday, the Porcupine Warriors and rival Hearts of Oak played to a scoreless draw.
With a standout game in front of you. This weekend, Kotoko will once more play as guests of local rivals King Faisal Babes on matchday four at the Baba Yara Stadium.
