Pile of hope for Hearts of Oak as defending champions in the FA Cup, it truly came to past at the Accra Sports Stadium today when they met Bechum United for the 15th time -defeated them on the score-line of 2-1 from a comeback victory- holding the record of nine wins against the visitors in history.
The first half was a roller-coaster moment for both sides as tons of scoring opportunities were wasted but Bechum United quickly found the target in the 46th minute courtesy of Emmanuel Avornyo - a momentum as potential champions.
But right before the visitor's eyes after 4 minutes, Hearts of Oak right-back Caleb Amankwah equalised brilliantly defaulting the score-line before halftime [1-1].
Draw halftime, after 15 minutes past in the second half, Heart of Oak lead forward Daniel Afriyie made it double -sending the visitors to an awol after getting the lead first.
Eight minutes after (68th) Hearts of Oak double, Bechum United star player Augustine Okrah received a red card, giving the defending champions enough room to dominate and become victorious for the second time in a row.
