Hearts of Oak registered their first win of the Ghana Premier League after match day three as they posted a 2-1 win over Ebusua Dwarfs at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Phobians claimed a first-half lead through a wonderfully struck Joseph Esso free-kick after Kofi Kordzi was fouled at the edge of the area.
Kordzi topped up the scoring and cushioned the lead for the former champions when he bent home a superb free-kick from 25 yards to register his first goal of the season.

Hearts should have gone up early in the first-half when Kwadwo Obeng Junior rounded his man around the area and unleashed a top drawer which was stopped by Issah Razak as well as Joseph Esso’s follow up shot.
