Dreams FC took an early lead through Sylvester Simba in the 4th minute of the game but Hearts of Oak drew level six minutes later through an effort from youngster Benjamin Yorke.

After just a minute into the second half, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh scored to give the Phobians the lead for the first time in the game.

Subsequently, teenager Suraj Seidu also got on the scoresheet to increase the lead for Hearts of Oak.

Despite Dreams FC netting the second goal in the 78th minute, the team could not get back into the game and lost 3-2 at the end of the contest.

Hearts of Oak will face the winner of the second semi-final game between Aduana Stars and Bechem United at the Golden City Park on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
