Western Region Division 1 team, Nzema Kotoko ousted Volta Region’s Kpando Heart of Lions in the Normalisation Committee (NC) Special Competition in a quarter final match played at the Kpando Sports Stadium on Sunday, June 9, 2019.
The very entertaining football game saw both teams display supremacy at each half with good chances of scoring but no killing edge to finish the game.
The game had to be decided from the spot after a barren result in regulation time.
Lions’ first kick from the foot of skipper Frank Akoto was saved. The visitors went on to score all three penalties, while Lions got just 1 from defender Tetteh ending the game and giving the away side a vital 3-1 win progressing them into the Semis.
Kpando Heart of Lions’ run in the competition had ended and was the best team in open play with an unbeaten record.
