After recess, Hearts of Oak, who had intense preseason pushed for the equaliser but the home team’s defense proved to be too strong to break down.
Late in added time, Real Tamale United stunned the visitors when Owusu Afriyie headed home from a corner kick to seal the win for the home side.
It is the first game of the season and the first defeat of the season for the Phobians.
New head coach Martin Koopman will be returning to Accra with his lads empty-handed to prepare for the next round of games.
