President’s Cup: Kotoko beats Hearts in penalty shootout

Hearts Kotoko.34Kotoko won on 4-1 penalty shootout

Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko locked horns again for the second time in 24 hours and could only be separated by the lottery of penalties with Asante Kotoko goalkeeper the hero of the day.

The game was full of goal mouth action but the finishing was off the pace with both teams failing to make their possession count.

Hearts who seems to be regaining their dominance over their sworn rivals started the game on fire but a combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing from the Accra based club meant that Kotoko were encouraged into the game.

As the game traveled on- both managers made changes with the aim of influencing the game but neither Saddick Adams or Cosmos Dauda could find the answer.

The Penalty shoot out was next with Hearts of Oak most dependable takers Vincent Atinga and Robin Gnagne all missing their kicks.

The next few kicks where just academic exercises with Hearts of Oak stepping up to finish to win the president cup.
