Kotoko Through To Round of 16 In FA Cup

Asante Kotoko strolled into the Round of 16 for the fourth-straight season of the MTN FA Cup after a 3-0 victory against third-round opponents First Klass.

Attackers Issah Yakubu, Isaac Boakye and Aminu Mohammed scored a goal each to complete the formalities at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday against the third-tier side.

Yakubu opened the scoring after 42 minutes in the first half to put Kotoko in front.

Former Black Stars striker, Boakye, who has made a return to his former Club after stints in Europe doubled Kotoko’s lead 20 minutes later when he registered his first competitive goal for the Porcupine Warriors.

With four minutes to end the game, Aminu sealed victory in the knockout fixture.

There was no joy in Tarkwa for Pure Joy FC as the Division One side feel to Cup holders, Medeama.

The Mauves won the game 2-0 to keep their title defence on course.

At the Robert Mensah Stadium, Berekum Chelsea were 1-0 winners over UCC Youngsters.
