By myjoyonline

Kumasi Asante Kotoko have all but secured qualification to the money zone of the CAF champions league competition after thrashing USCAFOOT of Madagascar 6-0 in Obuasi.

The Porcupine Warriors who have averaged one goal per game scored a record six in the club's African Club competition history since their 1981 5-0 feat over Egypt's Zamalek in Kumasi.

Attacker Charles Taylor in the 20th minute put Kotoko ahead after a lay off from Nana Arhin Duah to end the first half 1-0.

Back from recess, Asante Kotoko scored five goals to put the game beyond USCAFOOT.

Kwame Obeng Darko who came on for injured Charles Taylor made it two before team captain Edmund Owusu Ansah scored the third goal.

Defender Aziz Ansah and Ivorian striker Ahmed Toure scored the fourth and fifth goals before Douglas Nkrumah scored the last of the six goal thriller two minutes to the end of the game.

The win gives Kumasi Asante Kotoko a huge advantage ahead of the second leg tie and the chance to play in the money zone of the lucrative club competition for the first time.

At the same venue on Saturday, Ghana's Accra Hearts of Oak pipped Tunisian club, Etoile Du Sahel by a lone goal in the Champions League third round eliminator.

The Phobians scored in the 35th minute through new signing Ruben Senyo after tapping in a rebound from a Bernard Dong Bortey strike.

In the CAF Confederation Cup, Berekum Arsenals drew goalless with Angolan side, Petro Atletico at the Sunyani Coronation Park.
