A second half strike by pre-season sensation Kwame Boateng gave former champions Asante Kotoko maximum points in their Week 5 Ghana Premier League clash with Sekondi Hasaacas.
The win is the first for the Porcupine Warriors this season.
In an improved performance from previous ones at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kotoko on Friday turned the heat on Hasmal but could only break through in the 76th minute.
The win lifts Kotoko from the 14th position to the 11th with 5 points.
Hasaacas, on the other hand, drop a step from the 12th position on the 16-club table. They have 4 points.
