GHANA”S ONLY MTN/CAF Champions League survivors, Ashgold last Saturday failed to make it to the 1/8th stage of the competition when they bowed 6-7 on penalties to their opponents FAR Rabat of Morocco in Rabat.
After a 2-2 aggregate scoreline, the two engaged in a dramatic penalty shoot out which saw the first five kicks ending 4-4, allowing the spot kick to enter into a second phase.
Substitute Alex Asamoah came face to face with destiny to win the day for his side, but he failed woefully in his attempt when he short off target.
It was Ashgold's Solomon Addy, who wasted his kick to give the North African the ticket to the next stage of the competition.
Last Saturday's loss was the Miners second successive loss to a North African side, having lost to Raja Casablanca ten years ago in the same competition.
