The Porcupine Warriors survived a late scare by Hunters as they cruised into the next stage of the Cup competition
Asante Kotoko defeated Bechem United 4-2 on penalties to progress to the Round of 32 of Ghana FA Cup at Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday.
The Porcupine Warriors took the lead early in the game after Steven Mukwala slotted in from close range before the striker added another minutes later after being played through by a teammate.
However, Bechem scored two crucial goals later on to push the game into penalty shootouts.
And despite Bechem’s motivation to go past their hosts, Kotoko managed to win 4-2 on penalties.
On Tuesday, title holders Hearts of Oak will face Uncle T FC in a make or break encounter at Accra Sports Stadium.
