    KUMASI ASANTE KOTOKO ENHANCED THEIR CHANCES IN THE AFRICAN CLUB ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN THEY BEAT PATRONAGE SAINTE ANNE, OF CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE, BY FIVE GOALS TO ONE IN THE FIRST LEG OF A PRELIMINARY ROUND PLAYED BEFORE 20,000 SPECTATORS AT THE KUMASI SPORTS STADIUM RECENTLY (17 AUGUST).

    THE VISITORS KICKED OFF AND ENTERTAINED THE CROWD WITH WELL-EXECUTED LONG PASSES. KOTOKO THEN TOOK OVER BUT MISSED MORE THAN A DOZEN SCORING CHANCES. IN THE NINTH MINUTE, HOWEVER, STE. ANNE STARTED A COMBINATION ATTACK THAT RESULTED IN WHAT WAS TO BE THEIR ONLY GOAL, SCORED BY CENTRE-FORWARD RICHARD.

    THIS ENCOURAGED KOTOKO TO PRESS EVEN HARDER, AND IN THE 27TH MINUTE OSUMANU SCORED THE EQUALISER FROM A HEADER FROM A MIDFIELD TOSS BY LEFT FULL-BACK OLIVER ACOUAH. NO MORE GOALS WERE SCORED UNTIL AFTER HALF-TIME.

    IN THE SECOND HALF, WITH THE VISITORS FLAGGING, KOTOKO'S INSIDE RIGHT OSE; KOFI SCORED FOUR MORE GOALS FOR HIS SIDE.
