Although King Faisal talisman Zubairu Ibrahim would score in the 30th minute to halve the deficit, the team could not complete a comeback in the second half.

An Emmanuel Gyamfi strike in the 51st minute steered Aduana Stars to a 3-2 win as Osman Ibrahim grabbed a second consolation goal for the away team.

In Dawu, Dreams FC also secured their place in the next phase of the competition after victory over Kotoko Royals.
