DAR ES SALAAM: YOUNG African Burkinabé player Stephan Aziz Ki of Young Africans won the NBC Premier League’s Golden Boot after scoring a hat-trick to help his team win 4-1 against Tanzania Prisons at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam yesterday.

Aziz Ki won the award with 21 goals two more ahead of his closest rival, Azam FC’s Feisal Salum who reached 19 goals after scoring a goal in his team’s 2-0 victory over Geita Gold at Nyankumbu Stadium in Geita yesterday.

It was a closely contested race between the two attacking midfielders, as they were equal in goal tallying before their last encounter yesterday.
