Legon Cities striker Kwame Boateng nearly struck his side in the lead against the run of play, but Hearts goalkeeper Richmond Ayi pulled a brilliant save.
Enoch Asubonteng nearly put Hearts of Oak ahead on the stroke of halftime, but his spectacular strike from 30 yards was tipped off the crossbar by Legon Cities goalkeeper Kwame Aziz.
Hearts of Oak started the second half on the front foot as they pressed for the lead, but the Legon
Cities defence kept them at bay.
Hamza Issah, who was largely quiet in the game, had a glorious opportunity to put Hearts in front, but his left foot effort skewed wide.
The game was fairly balanced halfway through the second half, and Hearts of Oak defender Ampadu delivered a goal line clearance to deny Legon Cities.
Both sides had opportunities to win the game late in the second half, but they both settled for a point each.
