5/6/2012 7:01:02 PM -
Danbort became the first side to secure a quarter-final berth in the MTN FA Cup after beating Sporting Mirren 3-2 on Friday in Tema.
The Division One side will now play the winner of the New Edubiase vs Heart of Lions clash on Sunday in the last eight of the competition.
Danbort raced into a 3-0 by the 34th minute after Mohammed Sackey headed home the opener before Daniel Awuni grabbed a brace to finish the first half with a comfortable lead.
Mirren, after the break started their revival and kept the pressure on Danbort, who had Emmanuel Odai sent off for a second bookable offence.
Jewel Arthur then pulled back two goals, both from freekicks within 15 minutes.
However, Mirren failed to find the much needed equaliser that could give them hope of turning the tie in their favour.
