WAFA produced a highly polished performance in the opening day of the Ghana Premier league to beat title favourites Kotoko at Sogakope.A goal in each half from Charles Boateng and man of the match Samuel Tetteh settled the tie in favour of the academy side.Asante Kotoko ,who have been tipped by many to win the title, were relatively below the level expected by many and even when they looked threatening, WAFA keeper Razak Abalora stood tall to curtail their attacks.Kotoko were given a prelude of how their day was going to be when keeper Felix Annan was substituted after picking up an injury.His replacement Eric Ofori Antwi did well to block a Martin Antwi shot but Charles Boateng reacted fastest to put the academy side ahead.Just before halftime, Kotoko’s woes further deepened when debutant Edwin Tuffour was also substituted after picking up an injury. Samuel Tetteh settled the tie few minutes after the break brilliant slotting home from close range after being beautifully picked out by Roger Lamptey.Kotoko were without Jackson, Dauda Mohammed and Kwame Boateng and this certainly had an effect on the team.Three points for WAFA while Kotoko have been given a reality check.Asante Kotoko’s next game against Ashanti Gold is unlikely to hold due to the Miners involvement in continental action while WAFA play as guests Berekum Chelsea in Berekum.–Follow Kweku on Twitter: @nana_odum.
