Shocking: Olympics demolish Kotoko to win independence Cup

Former Black Stars goalkeeper, Richard Kingson announced his return back to the local football by helping Accra Gt. Olympics to wallop, Kumasi Asante Kotoko  by 3-0 at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium, Accra on Friday to win the Independence Cup.

Midfielder Francis Okai scored in both halves of the game, with Agbashie Doertse scoring the other goal for the Dade boys.

Although Kotoko dominated play Accra Gt. Olympics did what matter most in football by capitalising on counter breaks to score all their three goals to aggravate the wounds of the Porcupine Warriors ahead of their CAF Champions League in two weeks time.

The Wonder Club struck the opener in the 19th minute through Francis Okai to beat Joseph Addo in post for Kotoko.

Kotoko afterwards took charge of the game but failed to find the back of the net, enabled Olympics to deploy another counter attacking strategy to double the lead from the foot of Agbashie Doertse in the 26 minute.

Kotoko, threw every player upfront to stage a comeback, however, their opponent soaked the pressure and hit them on the break to put the icing on the cake through Francis Okai’s second on the day.

Gt. Olympics defence had Richard Kingson and Dan Quaye, who have returned back to the domestic football after several years abroad.

The league champions’ run of winless streak was extended to 6 games in all competitions, after the humiliation by the Accra based outfit.

Kotoko have a date with Medeama on Sunday in the First Capital Plus Premier League before setting off to Algeria to face El Eulma in the CAF Champions League.

Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and Osu Mantse, Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI, jointly presented the trophy to Olympics captain Attram and sparked off spontaneous  jubilation by the players, officials and supporters.
