The Porcupine Warriors started the match on a good note as they ended the first department of the match in a 2-1 victory.

Captain Amos Frimpong neatly converted the penalty into the back of the net of Kariobangi Sharks on the 39th minute.

A powerful shot from Duke Abuya on the stroke of halftime was saved by the woodwork which ended the first half in a 2-1 in favor of Asante Kotoko.

Back from the break, the two side failed to find the back of the net despite the numerous chances created and set-pieces awarded to them.
