Joseph Esso’s brace secures Kim Grant’s first trophy for Accra Hearts of Oak

Hearts of Oak and Dreams FC, just before they began the game

Darling club Accra Hearts of Oak beat Dreams FC by 2 goals to 1 to lift the Samuel Tettey Natey Memorial Cup at the Accra Sports Stadium yesterday. 

The  game started on a lighter note as both teams thrilled their fans to exciting football. Dreams FC found their passing rhythm in the first department as they dominated the game in the midfield. 

After putting so much pressure on the defense of Hearts of Oak, they failed to find the back of the net. A 5th minute long shot from Dreams FC’s Patrick Arthur hit the goal post.

A powerful drive from Hearts of Oak attacker, Joseph Esso, outside the 18 yard box in the 10th minute beat Dreams goalkeeper Talinu Alhassan as he couldn’t stop the ball from entering the net as they registered their first goal. 

Hearts of Oak continued to put pressure as they displayed good football to their home fans. The midfield of Dreams couldn’t soak the pressure from Hearts of Oak as Joseph Esso doubled the scores in the 37th minute, making it two goals to nil in the first half.

Then came the second half which also started on a good note for the home team. However, skipper for Hearts of Oak Fatawu Mohammed missed the net in the 55th minute in the 16 yard box as he could have made it three nil for the Phobians.

In the 62nd minute, Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Ernest Sowah brought Eric Gawu of Dreams FC down in the 18 yard box, resulting in a penalty. Patrick Arthur then converted it nicely, making it two goals to one.

Hearts forward looked sharp and dangerous as they posed more threat to the Dreams FC defense, but they failed to find the back of the net in second half. 

Another attempt from Kofi Kodzi could have given Hearts a third goal but goalkeeper Talinu Alhassan prevented the ball from entering the net.  

Samuel Tettey Natey was the “SPIRITUAL HEAD” and life petron for Accra Hearts of Oak who  died in 2007.
