Nsoatreman FC, a Division One League team from Sunyani, defeated Tamale City FC 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday in the Zone One playoff at the Accra Sports Stadium to advance to the Ghana Premier League for the upcoming season.
When the two teams were knotted on 71 points and head-to-head after winning both of their league matchups by a single goal, they were unable to be separated throughout the regular season.
At the Accra Sports Stadium, Nsoatreman took the lead in the 56th minute through Samuel Ofori after a scoreless first half. Tamale City answered seven minutes later with a penalty from Bismark Asare, and the score remained the same at the end of regulation.
Charles Asante scored for Nsoatreman in the 98th minute to make it 2-1, and that was how the game ended.
Nsoatreman was promoted to Ghana’s top division for the first time ever as a result of the outcome.
They will compete in the Ghana Premier League alongside Samartex FC and Kotoko Royals in the upcoming season.
