MTN FA Cup semi-finals: Hearts of Oak beat Dreams FC 3-2 to qualify for final
Hearts of Oak are set to play in a second consecutive final of the MTN FA Cup competition after beating Dreams FC in the semi-finals today to progress to the final.
The Phobians today locked horns with the fellow Premiership side at the Accra Sports Stadium to fight for one of the spots in the final.
Following a slow start to the first semi-final game, a Sylvester Simba goal in the 4th minute handed Dreams FC the lead.
Unfortunately, the side from Dawu could not hold on as Hearts of Oak drew level six minutes later through an effort from youngster Benjamin Yorke.
Although both teams will be presented with a number of opportunities from there on, neither side could score as the first 45 minutes ended in a 1-1 stalemate.
After just a minute into the second half, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh scored to give the Phobians the lead for the first time in the game.
Subsequently, teenager Suraj Seidu also got on the scoresheet to increase the lead for Hearts of Oak.
Despite Dreams FC netting the second goal in the 78th minute, the team could not get back into the game and lost 3-2 at the end of the contest.
The 3-2 win has sent Hearts of Oak into the final of this season’s MTN FA Cup where the team will face the winner of the second semi-final game between Aduana Stars and Bechem United.
That game will be played at the Golden City Park on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
