The Phobians have made it þo the final of the cup competition and could win their first double in two decades
Hearts of Oak defeated Medeama 3-0 in the second semifinals of 2021 FA Cup at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday.
The Phobians, after winning the Premier League title for the first time since 2009, were in high hopes to make it to the final of the FA Cup and they did it in a fashionable style.
After a pulsating opening exchanges, Benjamin Efutu gave Samuel Boadu’s men the lead by the 12th minute after meeting 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.
Hearts will now face AshantiGold who also defeated Berekum Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup on August 8 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
