Dreams FC came from behind to defeat Hearts of Oak 2-1 and win the GHALCA G8 title for the first time at the Cape Coast stadium on Sunday.

It is the first major title for the ambitious club who are set for their second appearance in the Ghanaian top flight in three years after they secured promotion last season.

Hearts took an early lead when Daniel Kordie unleashed a thunderbolt from 25 yards which flew past goalkeeper Isaac Amoako like a missile in the 11th minute.

Seven minutes later, Kweku Adjei Darko drew Dreams FC level when he slalomed through the defenders before lifting the ball over Benjamin Mensah.

On 63rd minutes, Dreams FC were awarded a penalty and Leonard Owusu converted brilliantly to give them the lead.
Seven minutes from time, Hearts were reduced to ten men after captain Inusah Musah was sent off after a second yellow card.
