The eventful match saw the two teams exhibiting good technical abilities and it came as no surprise that the game produced six goals at the end of proceedings.
Liberty drew first blood as they stunned the Porcupine Warriors in the 22nd minute when Eben Assifuah™s goal-bound shot took a wicked deflection off Kotoko™s defender, Joseph Ochaya Benson, and entered the net.
The two teams, after the goal, squared up fiercely in midfield and battled for control which made the flow of the game scrappy.
On resumption, Kotoko piled up pressure on their opponents and managed to equalize in the 70th minute with striker Ransford Osei getting on target after missing some decent chances earlier in the game.
The Porcupine Warriors fetched the second goal in the 72nd minute courtesy substitute Seidu Bansi whose close-range thunderbolt zoomed into the yawning net after Liberty™s goalkeeper Daniel Adjei had been displaced in beautiful combination by the Kotoko attack.
Sensing danger, the visitors threw caution to the wind and attacked in droves to snatch the equalizer in the 78th minute through Kennedy Ashia.
Ashia again was on the scoring sheet as he scored the third goal for Liberty in the 86th minute when he connected home an Assifuah in-swinger.
Kotoko, with defeat staring them in the face, resorted to long passes and in one of their dangerous moves upfront saw Michael Anaba being brought down in the 18-yard box for a spot-kick on the stroke of time.
Kwabena Adusei converted the kick to level for the Porcupine Warriors.
