AshantiGold eased into the semifinals of the 2020/21 MTN FA Cup with a 4-2 win over lower-tier Kintampo Top Talent FC Saturday afternoon.
Playing at home – the Len Clay Stadium – for the first time in the competition this campaign, the Miners looked favourites against the Division Two side.
Frank Akoto opened the scoring after 16 minutes of play.
On 28 minutes, attacker Prince Opoku Agyemang would fire in the second after being allowed time and space to move the ball from the centre of the field and pick his spot.
AshantiGold right-back Kwadwo Amoako then scored a ridiculous own goal in the 35th minute – heading the ball back to Burkinabe goalkeeper Bailoul Mohammed who had picked the wrong spot.
Winger Paul Asare de Vriesadded the third for AshantiGold just three minutes into the second half while Amos Addai curled home a free-kick on the 70th-minute mark to make it 4-1.
Prince Sarkodie got another goal back for Kintampo Top Talent during time added on.
AshantiGold advance to the last four as 4-2 winners, awaiting the winner of the game between Asante Kotoko and Berekum Chelsea.
