Champions Andrew Appau scored in the 10th minute of added time to give Asante Kotoko a point in a 1-1 draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, denying Great Olympics.
Great Olympics were on a three-game losing streak coming into the game, but they held their own against the Champions on Sunday.
After a scoreless first half, Abdul Bashiru scored the opening goal for Great Olympics after 47 minutes. Then, for the majority of the second half, Olympics frustrated Kotoko, but their perseverance paid off in added time when Appau headed in a cross to earn them a point.
As a result, Asante Kotoko is tied for third place with archrivals Accra Hearts of Oak and Accra Lions on 19 points, one point behind leaders Aduana FC, who play Bibiani Gold Stars on Monday.
