One of Ghana’s most glamorous football clubs played their hearts out last weekend, but couldn’t win the three points at stake.
The match with porcupine warriors dominating proceedings and making several dangerous in roads in to their opponents’ goal area with singular determination to carry the day.
But all were to no avail. Unsurprisingly, their opponents also stood their grounds and displayed remarkable courage in front of Kotoko’s eighteen yards box.
But the Kotoko defense were similarly equal to the task and showed resilience till the end of the first half.
After the break, the second half started with the home side playing excellently, with brisk, fluent short passes.
Which left Kotoko looking like football novices with all their passes often going to their rivals who turned such faulty moves into opportunities to play to their own desired tempo.
It stayed that way until the seventieth minute, when Medeama, begun to show some traces of tiredness, but the Kotoko attackers, too, disappointingly failed to take advantage of the situation.
They continued to merely mostly ran circles around their opponents in the midfield melee without any real attempts at goal.
Most fans conjectured that the three home match ban affected Kotoko.a
And that only their experiences came into play to help them hold the Medeama boys at bay and end up sharing the points.
A joy for Medeama fans shared too having held Kotoko to a goalless draw at home, contrary to match forecasts and predictions that would lose to Kotoko.
