Ampem Dacosta cleared the danger for Ashanti Gold by the 18th minute after Olympics came close to opening the lead.
Yussif was denied by the goal post before Ashanti Gold was also denied in similar situation as Yaw Annor’s long drive couldn’t go in.
However, after the break, Annor was lucky the second time asking after he connected a pass from Elijah Addai and sent in a powerful drive which went past the goalkeeper on the 69th minute.
