Despite losing several stars the West African Football Academy [WAFA] managed to beat Asante Kotoko 2-0 on Wednesday, August 23 at the Sogakope Red Bull Arena where the soccer physician are yet to lose a game.
The Porcupine Warriors [Asante Kotoko] knowing very well how deadly WAFA could be at their favourite synthetic pitch decided to go into the game with a more defensive approach putting ten men behind the ball in the first 45 minutes of the game.
Coach Steve Polack’s tactical plan worked to perfection in the first half but failed in the second half when WAFA returned with zero No. 9 as leading striker Komlan Agbeniandan dropped deep into the middle to tease the two Kotoko central defenders off their line to create space for Jude Ampem Darko and Daniel Lomotey to exploit.
The soccer physicians broke the deadlock in the 57th minute through Jude Ampem after a goal mouth melee.
Asante Kotoko goalie, Felix Annan came off his line to punch out Gideon Waja’s free kick but the ball fell in front of Ampem whose attempt at goal took a ricochet off the post before hitting the back of Felix Annan to enter into the yawning net.
Daniel Lomotey scored the second goal in the 63rd minute after running through the Kotoko defence with ease.
The West African Football Academy have leapfrogged to the summit of the Ghana Premier League ladder with 46 points.
WAFA’s next destination is the harbour city where they play as guest to the relegation threatened Tema Youth SC.
