FA Cup champions Hearts of Oak suffered a disappointing 3-1 defeat in their first match of the ongoing pre-season competition, GHALCA G6, on Sunday.
The Phobians were defeated by a motivated Medeama side at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Medeama started the game on a high note, scoring two quick goals before the half-hour mark.
They took the lead in the 22nd minute when Darlington Gyan Fosu’s shot deflected off Hearts of Oak centre-back Emmanuel Tsawortey and into his own net.
Two minutes later, Medeama grabbed their second through Joshua Agyemang as the Mauves and Yellows ended the first half with a comfortable lead.
Medeama returned from the break with more firepower and they registered their third courtesy of Agyemang who scored his second of the day.
Hearts of Oak’s only goal came in the 63rd minute through Magnus Owusu.
Hearts of Oak will face Berekum Chelsea, who won their first game 2-0 against Medeama, in their final Group B game on Thursday.
