Okwi Scores As Simba Tips Yanga 3-1


remedy geneva;”>hospital sans-serif; color: #222222;”> Okwi who came in as a substitute on his debut scored for Yanga African in the 85th minute in a game against Simba but his goal was in vain as Yanga lost the game 3-1.

The Uganda striker joined Yanga after only two months stint at SC Villa after an “unhealthy’’ and “unofficial’’ departure from Tunisia giants.

Okwi came off the bench to score but Yanga had already conceded three goals that were scored by Tambwe 13, 41 and Awadh 64th minute, respectively.

Yanga had two Cranes strikers in Hamis “Diego’’ Kiiza and Emmanuel Okwi who came in during the second half but couldn’t help Yanga to escape the 3-1 defeat.

However, Simba are still trailing in 2nd position in the Tanzania Vodacom Premier League that has just resumed after a stop-over to pave way for the Tanzanian national team to take part in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

But Simba are only behind Yanga African by just one point and it is this win against their rivals that has pushed them to 2nd position since the league went in recess as Simba were 4th with 24 points by the time.
