Prince Opoku Agyemang underlined his fine form in front of goal with an early minute strike that separated Medeama from giants Asante Kotoko in a 1-0 victory at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa on Wednesday in the Ghana Premier League.
The former New Edubiase United and Black Stars B striker stepped up and planted the ball firmly at the wrong side of Felix Annan as 10-man Kotoko failed to crawl back from the under-first-minute concession at a parked Akoon Park.
The striker, playing to spectacle of former England hit-man Emile Heskey, made no mistake as his tucked the ball home to ensure the Yellow and Mauves continue their recent dominance over Kotoko at the venue.
Dependable defender Issouf Ali Quattara was voted the Most Valuable Player of the match after he held the Kotoko attack led by Songne Yacouba at bay for the entire period of the match.
Medeama coach Samuel Boadu dropped star midfielder Kwasi Donsu to the bench while his Kotoko counterpart Maxwell Konadu handed starting roles to Augustine Okrah and Martin Antwi but their presence on the pitch could not alter the fate of the Porcupine Warriors who have now lost three out of their last four visits to the city.
The defeat comes as bad omen for Kotoko who have suffered back-to-back defeats following the weekend home defeat to Berekum Chelsea at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
