Battling KMC FC strike late to deny Yanga SC sixth straight win

Young Africans (Yanga SC) were deprived of their sixth straight Mainland Premier League win after being held to a 1-1 draw by KMC at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Monday.

A late penalty in the 92nd minute of the tense match by substitute Abdul Hillary was enough for the visitors to earn a deserved point after the hosts took the lead in the 73rd minute courtesy of veteran attacker Mrisho Ngasa, who scored his second goal of the campaign.

According to the Daily News, it was the first game between the two sides to end in a draw, as Yanga have been posting wins whenever they played against KMC since Kinondoni Municipal were promoted into the top-flight last season.
