Two first half goals from Prince Opoku and Richard Boadu ensured victory for the Mauve and Yellow as they leapfrogged Kotoko to occupy top spot.

Kotoko started the game on the bright note as Emmanuel Gyamfi gave them the opener in the 13th minute after Augustine Okrah’s delightful cross found him unmarked as he headed home for the Porcupine Warriors.

Kotoko were very dominant in the opening half hour but Prince Opoku restored parity for the away with a superb strike just past the half hour mark.

The game was very lively in the late stages of the first half with both sides creating good opportunities.

But Medeama took the lead just on the stroke of half time after Boadu’s strike deflected off a Kotoko defender with goalkeeper Abalora left helpless.

Kotoko started the second half in blistering fashion as they searched for the equalizer but the Medeama defence were resolute in their defending.

Medeama’s captain Tetteh Zutah nearly found the third goal for the away side but his shot went wide.

Kotoko’s biggest chance fell in the second for Godfred Asiamah but his shot from outside the box missed the post by inches.

Kotoko huffed and puffed in the second half to get to the equalizer but they couldn’t as Medeama secured all three points.
