On the final day of the Betpawa Premier League 2022-23 season, Asante Kotoko and Dreams FC played to a draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Asante Kotoko, the home team, started the game with a flurry of chances, but the resolute defense of Dreams FC denied them the opening goal. The match showcased intense midfield action, with Asante Kotoko’s midfield, led by Richard Boadu, outperforming their opponents and dominating possession. The first half ended with referee Robert Musey blowing the whistle at 45+2 minutes.
After the break, Asante Kotoko made an early substitution, bringing on Eric Zeze to replace the injured Enoch Morrison. Eric immediately made an impact with a defense-splitting pass to Cameroonian Mfegue, but Ali Jalilu made a crucial clearance to prevent Mfegue from scoring his fifth goal of the season in the 56th minute.
In the 60th minute, Mfegue had another opportunity to break the deadlock after a delightful cross from Shadrack Addo, but his header struck his hand, resulting in a free kick for Dreams FC. As the match approached its conclusion, Dreams FC goalkeeper Solomon Agbasi made an outstanding save to deny Solomon Sarfo Taylor’s thunderous strike, keeping the game level.
Following the draw, Asante Kotoko maintained their fourth position with 52 points, while Dreams FC moved up to the sixth position with 48 points, just one point ahead of seventh-placed Karela United.
Asante Kotoko will give their players a break before resuming preseason preparations, while Dreams FC will continue training and preparing for their upcoming MTN FA Cup game against King Faisal.
