Kotoko wallop Cornerstone in a friendly

Asante Kotoko recorded an emphatic 4-0 victory over lower-tier outfit Cornerstone in a pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon.


The game which served as a preparatory encounter for both sides ahead of the 2017-18 season was played at the Baba Yara Stadium. The match was played within two hours.


The first game was played within 60 minutes, thus 30 minutes for each half. And, Kotoko used two sets of teams for each half.


Yakubu Mohammed opened the scoring in the 3rd minutes before Sarfo Gyamfi came off the bench to increased the tally to 2-0. Kotoko held on to the end of the first game.


The second game started immediately after the first game. Kotoko used a different set of players for the two halves.


Nana Boakye snatched the third goal on the afternoon for the Reds by tapping in from close range after Akwasi Nti’s strike was poorly saved by the man in posts for Cornerstone.


Youngster Mohammed Naseem got the fourth goal to climax his impressive display on the day for the Porcupine Warriors.
