The defending Ghana Premier League champions Asante Kotoko and Aduana Stars fought courageously to a 0-0 draw on January 1 at Nana Agyeman Badu Park.
The Hunters had complete control of the game from start to finish, but they were unable to capitalize on their opportunities.
Former Asante Kotoko player Emmanuel Gyamfi presented a serious threat to his current team by creating plenty of opportunities, but his teammates were sloppy in front of the net.
While Kotoko’s Fredrick Asare was occupied deflecting shots that might have cost the Porcupines a victory, Aduana Stars goalkeeper Joseph Addo was having a horrible day at the office.
Kotoko’s Steven Mukwala was simply unlucky in the match because the Porcupines could not create enough scoring opportunities.
Justice Blay and Eric Zeze were arrested for their crimes against Emmanuel Gyamfi after attempting to stamp Kotoko goalie Fred Asare; however, Emmanuel Gyamfi was not charged with a felony that may have resulted in their arrest.
When Fred Asare produced a critical stop in the waning moments of the game, Kotoko was on the verge of losing to the Hunters.
With the help of the draw, the Hunters, under the direction of coach Paa Kwesi Fabin, widened their margin over Kotoko, who are in second place with 18 points, in the league rankings.
