Ghana Premier League: Dreams 2 – 2 Hearts – Phobians back to ‘default settings’


Accra Hearts of Oak SC played out a 2-2 stalemate on the road against Dreams FC in the opening fixture of the Ghana Premier League week 10.

The Phobians begun the game on a blistering pace with some quality football on display especially in the first 15 minutes of the match.

Isaac Mensah scored what seemed to be a legitimate goal but only for the officials to rule it out to the surprise of the supporters inside the stadium.

On the half hour mark, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh scored a scorcher to put the visitors 1-0 up with fifteen minutes left to play.

Soon after, Mensah was presented with a chance to double the Phobians lead but the young striker fluffed his effort in front of goal.

Just a minute to the end of the first half, Richmond Ayi, Hearts goalie made a howler in goal to hand Ibrahim Issah the chance to score the equalizer just before half time to make it 1-1.

Right after Dreams FC equalizer, Barnieh had a golden opportunity to restore the Rainbow Boys lead but the former Ghana U20 captain failed to convert the chance.

The second half was more of a 50-50 game with Hearts being the slightly better than the home team.

Ishmael Dede grabbed the what seemed to be the winner for the Still Believe Club eight minutes to the end of the match.

Youngster Salim Adams scored very late into additional time period to secure a vital point for the struggling Premier League Champions.
