Sharks humble Hearts

Hearts could have opened the score through Kojo Obeng on the 78th minute but his strike went wide.

Winger Benjamin Tweneboah continued tormenting the back line of the visitors as his effort earned them the only goal.

Felix Addo netted the only goal for Elmina Sharks on the 84th minute to hand his side their first win in the competition.
