MTN FA Cup: Hearts exit as Kotoko defeat Benab

Defending champions, Hearts of Oak, have exited the 2022/23 MTN FA Cup following their defeat to Dreams FC at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, January 22.

The Phobians fell 0-1 in the first half of the round of 32 tie through an Agyenim Boateng strike but were unable to level things.

Slavko Matic’s men were handed a golden opportunity in the 97th minute of the game after being awarded a penalty.

However, Samuel Inkoom failed to convert despite two attempts from the penalty box.

Elsewhere at the Baba Yara Stadium, Asante Kotoko survived a late scare from Division One side Benab FC to record a 2-1 victory.

The Porcupine Warriors went ahead through an own goal from Benab, who played as the home team on the day.

However, the lower tier side were levelled after the break and looked certain to cause an upset but Maxwell Agyemang turned up big late in the game to restore Kotoko’s lead.

The win sees Kotoko advance to the next round of the MTN FA Cup.
