Caleb Amakwaah’s stunning freekick was enough to separate both sides in what was a keenly contested game.

In Tarkwa, Medeama survived a scare after they let a 2-goal lead slip. The Yellow and Mauves raced into a 2-0 lead before Attram Devisser pulled parity to send the game to extra-time.

Medeama, However, had the last laugh as a late Prince Opoku Agyemang goal set up a semi-final clash with Hearts of Oak.

Kotoko’s season and quest to play in Africa next season came to an end after they lost out on penalty shootouts to Berekum Chelsea after the game ended goalless after 90 minutes and extra-time.

The Porcupine Warriors missed a golden opportunity to take the lead in regulation time after Fabio Gama missed a penalty after Sarfo Taylor was fouled in the box.

Neither side could be separated after 90 minutes and extra time and Wahab Adams was the unfortunate fellow who missed his spot-kick as Berekum Chelsea emerged victors 5-4 on penalties.

Ashgold breezed past lower tier side Kintampo Talents as the Miners beat them 4-2. The miners who are the competitions top scorers set-up a semi-final clash with Berekum Chelsea following their victory over Kintampo Talents.
