Gold Stars have eliminated AshantiGold

Second-tier side Gold Stars reached the fifth round of the MTN Ghana FA Cup at the expense of Premier League side AshantiGold. 

The Bibiani-based side recorded a 3-1 win at home against the 1993 champions.

Felix Baffoe netted an own goal and strikes from Prince Gyamfi and Richmond Kojo to finish off Bashir Hayford’s side.

Striker Yakubu Mohamed scored the consolation goal for the Miners.

AshantiGold’s defeat sums up its recent wobbly form in the Ghana top flight.

The Miners-who made it to the final last season- have crashed out at the 1/16th stage.
