Striker Kwame Boateng converted an 88th minute penalty to ensure Medeama SC registered supremacy over his former club Asante Kotoko in match day 2 of the Ghana Premier Premier League.
The electrifying first half failed to produce any goal despite the two sides creating some glorious chances in the crucial game.
It was Medeama who looked more purposeful having dominated play in the early stages of the game but could not score find target.
Former Striker of Asante Kotoko Kwame Boateng who has had a brilliant form since exiting the Kotoko did everything withing his capacity to punish his former club but saw Goal Keeper Felix Annan pulling some excellent saves to deny his strike into the goal post ending the first half barren.

The second half had to be delayed following a heavy downpour prior to the end of the first half.
Back from recess, Kotoko played better with no pressure being mounted on them by the host but failed to create any decent chance worth entering the net to give them the needed goal.
Medeama then gathered momentum to pile incessant pressure on Kotoko but struggled to score until referee Nathan Anafo awarded them a penalty following a foul on striker Kwame Boateng in the 88th minute.
The striker then converted the penalty excellently to claim victory for the miners against a club he struggled to command starting role.
Goal keeper Felix Annan however, was adjudged as NASCO Man of the Match having won it in the last game against Inter Allies where Kotoko won by a goal to nothing.
