Yanga win as Simba falter
The newly-promoted Toto Africans of Mwanza hit Simba 3-2 in a Vodacom Premier League match played at the Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza yesterday.
Philipo Arando scored two goals for Toto Africans in the 45th and 59th minutes while the other goal was registered in the 57th minute by Simba defender Said Kokoo when he was trying to clear the ball from danger.

In Arusha, Yanga hit JKT Ruvu 1-0 in another Premier League match played at the Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium.
The lone goal for the Dar side was scored by Maurice Sunguti in the 13th minute when the scorer used an Abdi Kassim cross to beat goalie Shaaban Dihile.
JKT Ruvu who dominated the game, tried to equalise in the 20th and 67t minutes through Aruna Adolf and Sostenes Manyasi respectively but failed to break Yanga defence.
Hosts JKT Ruvu were reduced to a 10-man when Kessy Mapande was given marching orders for fouling Credo Mwaipopo in the 86th minute.
