MTN FA Cup: Hearts of Oak thrash Medeama to set up final with Ashantigold

Accra Hearts of Oak have booked a place in the MTN FA Cup final after defeating Medeama on Sunday evening at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Samuel Boadu’s side recorded a 3-0 win over the Tarkwa based side in the second semifinal game.

After a pulsating opening exchanges, Benjamin Efutu gave Samuel Boadu’s men the lead by the 12th minute after he headed home a cross from his teammate.

Medeama came close to equalising three minutes later after Eric Kwakwa combined with Amed Toure but the latter’s shot was saved by goalkeeper Richard Attah.

After the break, Hearts doubled their lead against the run of play through Isaac Mensah. Medeama goalkeeper Frank Boateng missed a clearance he anticipated, leaving his post at the mercy of Mensah who calmly slotted the ball into the empty net.

Hearts made it 3-0 from the spot by the 72nd minute through Afriyie Barnie. The midfielder’s initial effort was saved by Medeama goalkeeper Boateng but referee Yao Bless rewarded him a retake which he beautifully sent the goalkeeper wrong way.

The results means the Phobians with face with Obuasi Ashantigold who had earlier eliminated Berekum Chelsea after beating them 4-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The final of the MTN FA Cup will be played on August 8 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
