Mashujaa see off Simba to qualify for Federation Cup quarterfinals

KIGOMA: 10-man Mashujaa FC have stunned Simba 6-5 on post match penalties to reach in the quarter-finals of CRDB Bank Federation Cup.

The thrilling match at Lake Tanganyika Stadium in Kigoma on Tuesday has dented Simba hopes of winning a treble this season.

The duo produced a 1-1 draw in the normal period of play thereby attracting spot-kicks to divide them.

Hosts Mashujaa grabbed an early lead via Reliants Lusajo (5) which was cancelled out by substitute Freddy Kouablan (51).

Despite playing with 10-players, Mashujaa resisted well pressure from the Reds throughout the second half until the final whistle sounded to break the tie.

It’s another blow to Msimbazi based giants who have recently eliminated in the CAF Champions League (CAF-CL) competition.

Here, only penalties had to be played to determine a team to penetrate into the last eight of the competition.

Seven teams that have qualified into the quarters so far are Ihefu, Tabora United, Coastal Union, Namungo, Geita Gold, Azam and Mashujaa.
