2020/21 MTN FA Cup: Hearts beat Sharks in extra time to reach semis

Hearts of Oak travelled to beat Elmina Sharks with an extra-time goal to reach the semifinals of the 2020/21 MTN FA Cup Saturday night.

The all-Premier League encounter at Nduom Sports Complex was tied 0-0 in regulation time.

But the goal would eventually arrive early in the second half of extra time after Hearts forward Daniel Afriyie Barnieh won a free-kick a few yards from outside the box.

And versatile Caleb Amankwah – who enjoyed a rare start – crowned a battling performance with a direct and firm strike goalkeeper Essam failed to deal with the 108th minute.

Hearts – the Ghana Premier League champions – held on to the 1-0 lead for the final 12 minutes and keep their double dream alive.

The Phobians are through to the semifinals, joining AshantiGold who beat Kintampo Top Talent FC 4-2 earlier in the afternoon.

Hearts will face the winner of Sunday’s quarterfinals clash between Medeama SC and Attram de Visser Academy.
