Mensah's solitary strike for Hearts sinks Liberty Professionals
The game started on a very cagey note with tackles flying all around the field considering the dry and rough nature of the field, with the home side on the front foot and looked the most likely side to take the lead. Liberty Professionals winger Asamoah Simon Appiah should have put the home side ahead in the 19th minute but Hearts goalkeeper Richard Attah produced a brilliant save from point-blank range to deny the home side a goal. Hearts started the second half on the front foot and could have taken the lead in the 50th minute but Victor Aidoo was indecisive and allowed the Liberty Professionals defenders to clear their lines. Liberty Professionals were stunned by goal from Hearts and responded very well and staged series of attacks on the Hearts of Oak defence.
