Dreams FC emerged champions of the 2018 Ghalca G8 Tournament after coming from behind to claim a 2-1 win over Hearts of Oak on Sunday
After controlling the early exchanges at the Cape Coast Stadium, Hearts took the lead through midfielder Daniel Kordie whose long range strike flew past goalkeeper Isaac Amoako in the 12th minute.
Dreams DC pegged back seven minutes later through new boy Abdul Razak Comwell after a brilliant team-play.
Just after the hour mark, Eric Gawu won the Premier League returnees a penalty. An on-rushing Hearts keeper Ben Mensah hacked down Eric Gawu who was through on goal. Skipper Leonard Owusu subsequently put Dreams FC ahead with a confident penalty effort which sealed the win.
Hearts finished the Ghalca G8 final with 10 men as captain Inusah Musah got marched off by referee Issaka Afful for a second bookable offence after bringing down Asamoah. The centre-back had escaped an earlier red card for an elbow offence.
Leonard Owusu, the Dreams FC captain, was named man-of-the-match in the final and as well the Most Valuable Player of the eight-team competition.
