Ebusua Dwarfs needed two late strikes to secure a 2-0 home win over Angolan side Petro Athletico in the CAF Confederations Cup game on Sunday.
The home side dominated the first half but created just a few goal scoring opportunities, nervy touches in the final third were their let-down.
Ivorian import Isaac Gomez made the breakthrough for the Cape Coast based side in the 81st minute after a good spell of possession.
The home team continued their dominance and soon doubled their lead through Ricky Adjei Mensah.
Dwarfs will travel to Luanda in a fortnight for the reverse fixture with a comfortable 2 goal advantage.
