It was Cameroonian striker Etouga Mbella who scored the first goal after 72 minutes of an end to end action where Kotoko could’ve gone down by two goals or more if Dreams FC were more purposeful upfront.

Etouga added another goal by 82nd minute after a through pass from Richmond Lamptey. Although, his initial shot was denied by the goal post, he was at the right place at the right time to tap in the rebound.
