The Porcupine Warriors earned their first win in eight games thanks to a superb strike from Baba Mahama.
A spectacular goal by Baba Mahama was enough to hand the three maximum points to Asante Kotoko over Tema Youth at the Tema Park on Sunday.
The former Techiman City talisman broke the deadlock in the 67th minute after he unleashed a great shot which flew past the Tema Youth goalie and into the net to settle the clash in favour of the away side.
Tema Youth came close on numerous occasions to take the lead in the first half but they were highly profligate letting Kotoko off the hook several times.
The second department was a sharp contrast of the first. The Tema-based side were second best and it was no surprise Kotoko took the lead through Baba Mahama. The former Techiman City talisman unleashed a great shot which flew past the keeper and into the net to settle the clash in favour of the away side.
The victory, masterminded by Kotoko new coach Steve Pollack, was the first win in over month as well as end Tema Youth’s unbeaten run at home.
The first game between the two sides ended goalless at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
