Asante Kotoko thumped the national U-23 side Black Meteors 3:0 to wrap-up Confederation Cup preparation at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Skipper Amos Frimpong scored at both ends with Jordan Opoku netting the other for the Reds.
Amos broke the deadlock of the cagey encounter in the 45th minute, soaring above everyone in the Meteors penalty box to head home Maxwell Baako’s corner kick.
A cutback pass in the 75th minute from Emmanuel Gyamfi was connected into the bottom corner by the evergreen Jordan Opoku.
A swift counter-attack from the right wing was illegally halted with Ibrahim Yaro fouling Emmanuel Gyamfi inside the box after the winger had rounded him up in the 78th minute.
Amos Frimpong elected himself for the kick and sent the ball into the left bottom corner past the stretching Kwame Baah to give the Porcupine Warriors the win.
The game, as well as the result, were the second for the Porcupine Warriors at the Accra venue this week, following the 3-0 whipping of Inter Allies in the side’s penultimate friendly last Wednesday.
The Kumasi-based club is in Aburi preparing for the first leg of the Confederation Cup’s second preliminary round match against Kariobangi Sharks in Kenya on Saturday, having earned a walkover in the first round.
The Black Meteors thus came as the last opponent in a string of friendly games that included the Black Stars, WAFA and Medeama.
