Hearts defeat Kotoko to lift Ghana @60 anniversary trophy in Kumasi

A 0-0 draw game was all it took for Accra Hearts of Oak to defeat their bitterest rivals outside Accra, Asante Kotoko on Sunday.

The game was a return leg to the first game played in May which the Phobians won 3-1 in Accra.

The draw meant that Hearts had a 3-1 aggregate win over Kotoko making them winners of the Ghana @60 Anniversary Cup.

The Phobians triumphed 3-1 on aggregate after the first leg win at the Accra Sports Stadium on 1 May with goals from Kwame Kizito, Thomas Abbey and Patrick Razak.

Defender Awal Mohammed got the consolation for Kotoko.

Sunday's match was over-shadowed by Saddick Adams injury in the first half where he suffered concussion.

The hat-trick hero during the FA Cup final two months ago in Tamale was later rushed to the hospital.

Reports say that he is in a stable condition and responding to treatment at the hospital.
