VIDEO: Dreams beat Kotoko 2-0 in Dawu

Dreams FC triumphed 2-0 over Asante Kotoko at Dawu Park in their 2022/23 betPawa Ghana Premier League (GPL) match-day 17 clash on Sunday.

A goal in each half ensured the ‘Still Believers’ picked up their sixth win in the first round of the season by handing the defending champions their fourth defeat.

Dreams opened the scoring in the 12th minute through Beninise striker Gael Avocevou Aholou who connected to a Michelle Sarpong free-kick with a one-time volley from close range.

Aholou could have recorded a hat-trick in the first half but for two sitters he missed after having goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim at his mercy.

At the other end, it was Dreams keeper Augustine Koomson who drew some top saves to deny Enoch Morrison and Rashid Nortey from finding the equaliser.

Kotoko thought they deserved a penalty late on in the first half when Dreams’ captain Abdul Jalilu brought down Nortey, but referee Rustum Gameli Senorgbe was not convinced to blow his whistle.

The Porcupine Warriors came on strong in the second half but conceded through the brilliance of Agyenim Boateng Mensah. The forward stole the ball from Augustine Agyapong before hitting past Danlad for his 5th goal of the campaign in the 61st minute.

Dreams almost added the third goal in the 85th minute when Sylvester Simba went past Danlad but he missed the target.

The 2-0 victory lifts Dreams FC into 10th position with 23 points while Asante Kotoko drop to 4th with 27 points.

Dreams keeper Augustine Koomson won the man-of-the-match award.
