Young Africans have intensified their inexorable quest to win this season’s mainland premier soccer lead after breezing past relegation haunted African Lyon in a match played at the national Stadium in Dare s Salaam yesterday.
Yanga took a 2-0 goal lead up to half time mark and they look intent to increase the tally as the second half got underway.
Yanga have attained a 36-point mark to restore the three-point gap over highly charging Azam FC who are second in the standings table.
Yanga scored their opener through Jerry Tegete after 21 minutes. Tegete was on target again after 42 minutes to paralyze the relegation haunted Dar side.
Didier Kavumbagu beat Abdul Seif through a penalty kick to register Yanga’s third goal after70 minutes. Before Kavumbagu’s goal Hamis Kiiza had missed a penalty that denied Yanga and early advantage to extend the margin.
By the time we went to press Yanga were besieging Lyon’s goal and played with comfortable ease.
Nizar Khalfan scored the fourth goal for Yanga ten minutes to time.
The outcome has left Lyon to work hard in the battle to fight against relegation despite changing a coach recently.
Lyon have nine points and are at the base of the 14-team premiership.ends
