Hearts of Oak defeat Medeama to set up cup final against Ashanti Gold and opportunity to complete domestic double

Benjamin Afutu, Isaac Mensah and Daniel Afriyie all scored for the Phobians as Hearts of Oak cruised to a 3-0 victory over Medeama SC on Sunday to cement their spot in Ghana’s MTN FA Cup. After withstanding a momentary challenge from the underdogs, the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League champions finished off their opportunities well starting with Afutu’s 12th minute header and allowed their quality to shine through in the end.

Hearts will meet Ashanti Gold in the final, who needed extra time to finish off Berekum Chelsea before pulling away in the extra session to win 4-1. It has been a struggle of a domestic campaign for the Miners, but AshGold will have a brilliant opportunity to wrap up their season with some silverware when they encounter Hearts of Oak in the final.

Highlights from both semifinal games are below.
