Mapinduzi cup day 2 : JKU beats Zimamoto (1-0) to bounce back into the race

After winning their first 3 points, Zimamoto came with great hopes to make it six as they face JKU who lost their first match against Mlandege.

It took JKU just 2 minutes into the game to open score.  In an early offensive,    Salum Mussa Salum made use of the mix-up in the Zimamoto defence to benefit from a loose ball and beat goalkeeper Hassan Khamis for the opener.

The score at half time could have been worst for Zimamoto if not of the several misses from Salum Mussa Salim of JKU who squandered several goal opportunities at the 29th and 32nd minutes.

With a solid defense line in place, it became difficult for Zimamoto’s forwards to reach the penalty box., thus  proceeding by long distant shots  with tries from Hassan Haji Ali, Shafii Hassan and Hakim Khamis who all shot off target, 20 to 30metres from the goal post at the 28th,30th and 35 minutes.

The second half saw a couple of opportunities from both sides but no valid goals recorded. JKU tried hard and scored at the 76th minute but the goal was disallowed because of an offside position. At the 84th minute, Hakim Khamis Ali goes crumbling in the penalty box but referee said play on.

The four additional minutes added as extra time yielded no goals and JKU came out victorious of the match winning by the smallest goal margin 1-0, grabbing their first three points to bounce back into the race for the semi finals
