Ashanti Gold made it to the finals of the NC Special Cup tier 2 after beating Kotoko 3-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium
The Miners came from a goal down to beat their regional rivals in style after an excelling display.
Ivorian attacker Naby Keita Laye shot Kotoko into the lead after just 2 minutes. Keita tapped in a cross from Kwame Boahene.
Kotoko’s celebration was cut short as Yusif Mubarik pulled parity by heading in a cross from Roland Amouzou.
Emmanuel Owusu shot Ashanti Gold into the lead in the 32nd minute with a half volley having received a pass from Appiah MacCarthey.
Ashanti Gold continued their dominance in the second half and eventually got the assurance goal in the 56th minute after Mark Agyekum tapped in from close range. Kotoko goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad looked to have been impeded by Agyekum before the latter scored.
The win sees Ashanti Gold through to the finals and a chance to play in the CAF Confederation Cup next season.
They will take on Nzema Kotoko who also defeated Unister Academy 2-1 in the other semi-final match.
Ali Muftawu and Agyanim Boateng scored for Nzema Kotoko with Francis Atitsogbo getting the consolation for Unister Academy.
