Hearts of Oak on Sunday afternoon lost 1-2 to Hasaacas in Accra on match day 21 of the ongoing First Capital Plus Premier League.
Emmanuel Ankobeah struck twice within the first six minutes to hand the visitors a 2-0 lead. A missile thrown hit one of the referee’s assistants and that saw play suspended for some time. Upon resumption, Hearts of Oak fought hard but Philip Boampong’s second half strike proved too little too late as Hasaacas held on for all three points.
