Asante Kotoko struck late to draw 3-3 with Liberty Professionals in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.
An injury time penalty kick converted by defender Kwabena Edusei saved the blushes of the champions before an expectant home crowd at the Baba Yara Stadium.
Kotoko were extremely wasteful upfront as they struggled to turn their superior ball possession into goals especially in the first half.
Their profligacy was severely punished in the 21st minute as a sleek move by Liberty forced defender Joseph Ochaya into conceding an own goal to give the visitors the lead.
It was a well deserved goal as the Dansoman-based side made their 10-minute spell count to neuturalize the effect of the Kotoko supporters.
The Porcupine Warriors however overturned their wasteful first half performance into a more purposeful and clinical second to equalize and take the lead through Ransford Osei and Seidu Bancey.
A late brace by Kennedy Ashia turned the game on its head – to set up what was to be a famous win for the Dansoman lads.
But a late penalty concession, neatly converted by defender Kwabena Edusei saw this dream disappear in the thin air in injury time.
