Runaway leaders Simba SC opened a 20 point gap after a 3-2 win over second placed Azam FC in a Tanzania Premier League match played at Azam Centre.
The host opened the scoring in the fifth minute through Never Tigere before Erasto Nyoni cancelled it out four minutes later. In the 16th minute, Meddie Kagere robbed the Azam defence the ball on the halfway before playing Deo Kanda through who rifled a low shot into the bottom corner.
After the break, Azam were soon back on level terms after Idd Seleman found the back of the net. Free-scoring Kagere ensured that Simba left the Ice Cream boys with all three points he expertly turned in a low cross into the back of the net.
Elsewhere, Mtibwa Sugar held fourth-placed side Namungo to a one-all draw as Ruvu Shooting beat visiting Alliance 1-0. In Kagera, hosts Kagera Sugar suffered a 2-3 loss to Mbeya City while Singida United sunk deeper in relegation with a 0-1 home loss to Coastal Union.
