Ashanti Gold edge past Chelsea to reach FA Cup final


The Miners have only a game left to play to win their first major trophy in five years

Ashanti Gold defeated ten-man Berekum Chelsea 4-1 after extra time to reach the FA Cup final at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Following a 1-1 scoreline after regulation time, three brilliant goals from Amos Nkrumah, Amos Addai and Seth Osei did the job for the Miners.

Chelsea’s resilience at the back was undone very early in the game after their player Stephen Abaidoo was shown the exit for picking a second yellow card.

Ashanti Gold capitalised on the numerical advantage to punish their opponents with three quick goals as the Frank Akoto and Osei Agyemang prevented Chelsea from setting up any kind of late comeback.

Ashanti Gold will now face the winner of the game between Hearts of Oak and Medeama in the final scheduled for August 8 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
