Simba FC win Tanzania's Community Shield

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (PANA) - League Champions Simba beat FA Cup winners, Mtibwa Sugar, 2-1 at the weekend at the CCM Kirumba stadium in Mwanza to win the Tanzanian Community Shield, a curtain raiser to the new football season.

Simba were superb in both halves, creating more chances and strikes from Meddie Kagere and Hassan Dilunga were enough to hand them their first silverware of the season.

The reigning league champions had to wait until the 29th minute for Kagere to break the deadlock, finishing off an assist from Hassan Dilunga.

It was Kagere’s fourth goal in competitive outings since joining from Kenyan side Gor Mahia last June.

Kelvin Sabato leveled matters for Mtibwa four minutes later with a long range shot after Hassan Hamis had put him through.

Dilunga, a former player of Mtibwa Sugar, scored the winner just before the break connecting home Emmanuel Okwi’s pass.

The second half was eagerly contested with Simba holding on to victory, and making clear their intent for the upcoming season.
