The newly crowned champions, Hearts of Oak, wasted no time in establishing their desire for the double after midfielder Benjamin Afutu headed in the opener from an Isaac Mensah cross just 12 minutes into the game

Mensah went from provider to a scorer, netting the Rainbow club's second on the hour mark following a dominant display from Hearts.

The game was then put beyond the reach of the Tarkwa-based club after Daniel Afriyie Barnieh won a penalty, which he executed perfectly for Hearts of Oak's third.

Having already won the Ghana Premier League, the Phobians have the opportunity to win two trophies this season, when they face Ashantigold in the FA Cup final.

Meanwhile, Ashantigold also ran riot over Berekum Chelsea after a magnificent extra time display.

The game which ended 1-1 in regulation time, saw the Miners take full control in the extra 30 minutes to score three times and seal victory with a 4-1 result.
