Former Asante Kotoko striker Ben Acheampong won his first trophy as Petro Atletico won the 2013 Angolan Super Cup on Saturday.

Petro Atletico, 2012 Angolan FA Cup champions drew 1-1 with league champions CRD Libolo on the road to triumph 2-1 on aggregate.

Acheampong, 22, created the assists which helped score both goals in the two-legged tie.
