Bright Lukman, last season’s top scorer of the GN Bank Division One League, climaxed an afternoon of good football with two goals. He opened the scoring in the 16th minute before he doubled the score line four minutes later from a rebound, after Ernest Sowah had failed to make a first time save.
Christopher Boney, a former Asante Kotoko defender, who made a return to Ebusua Dwarfs in the beginning of the second half nailed the Porcupine Warriors in the coffin with the third in the 28 minute.
The woes of Kotoko was deepened in the 35th minute, when Eric Donkor, the stand in skipper of the Kumasi giants in the absence of Amos Frimpong who started the game from the bench was sent off for a second booking.
