Ghana FA Cup reached the round of 32 on Sunday as several premier league clubs fell to lower-tier sides in fascinating encounters.
Title holders Medeama SC were bundled out of the competition by fellow premier league club Liberty Professionals. After a 1-1 stalemate, the Tarkwa-based side lost 4-5 on penalties to Liberty.
In Sunyani, last season’s finalist Asante Kotoko edged past third-tier side SK Shion 4-1 on penalties after a pulsating 1-1 in regulation time. Midfielder Frank Sarfo Gyamfi, who was making a comeback after a two-month injury layoff, broke the deadlock in the first half but Osei Assibey Francis equalised late in second half for the hosts before the tie was decided on penalties.
Elsewhere in Accra, Hearts of Oak after their impressive start to the Ghana Premier League season, defeated second-tier side Wassaman United 3-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium. A brace from Kenneth Okoro and a strike from Kwame Kizito were enough to see off Wassaman.
In Obuasi, defending league champions Ashanti Gold defeated third-tier side Sun City FC 3-1 thanks to goals from Frederick Quayson, Fuseini Nuhu and Francis Adjei with Adama Sulemana getting a consolation for the visitors.
Techiman City FC came from 2-0 down to pull level with regional rivals Aduana Stars, subsequently winning 7-6 on penalties at the Ohene Ameyaw Park in Techiman.
