Ghana Premier League leaders Aduana FC carried their form into the 2022/23 MTN FA Cup by defeating 9-time champions Asante Kotoko 1-0 to advance to the quarterfinals.

A penalty converted by winger Sam Adams on the hour mark decided the Round of 16 topliner at Nana Agyeman Badu (NAB) I Stadium in Dormaa.

At the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in Abrankese, King Faisal overcame Steadfast FC 1-0 thanks to a goal by Abdul Latif.

Nsoatreman FC rallied from 2-0 down at home against Debibi United to draw after 90 minutes and proceeded to win the tie 7-6 on penalties.

Another all-Premier League tie saw Real Tamale United defeat FC Samartex 2-1 at Aliu Mahama Stadium.

Manaf Umar scored both goals for the ‘Pride of the North’ while on-loan winger Ebenezer Ackahbi got the consolation goal for the visitors – his first for his new club.

Legon Cities had to book their spot in the last-8 through a 4-3 penalty shootout victory over Volta Rangers after being held 1-1 in regulation time at El-Wak Stadium. The Royals took the lead in the 25th minute through Kwabena Adu Meider. However, the visitors from Division One capitalized on a defensive blunder to level in the 54th minute and forced the tie into penalties.

At the Robert Mensah Stadium, an Enock Affram penalty in the 55th minute ensured Ebusua Dwarfs eliminated GPL side Kotoku Royals with a 1-0 victory.
