IHEFU FC ended defending Premier League champions Young Africans’ unbeaten run after beating the latter 2-1 at Highland Estates Stadium in Mbarali, Mbeya on Wednesday evening.
Pacome Zouzoua put Yanga upfront in the 3rd minute which was later cancelled by Lenny Kissu five minutes before break.
In the 66th minute, Charles Ilanfya finished the business with a blistering strike that was too hot for Yanga goalie Djigui Diarra making them emerge 2-1 victors.
It is the first defeat for the reigning champions who have since managed to grab 9 points in four games.
For Ihefu, it is their second win of the season and have since claimed 6 points in four games.
Last season, Yanga suffered with the same goal margin at the same venue, and it seems like a thorny pitch for them.
On Thursday Prisons will be at Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya to welcome another giant, Simba Sports Club.
