Zanzibar Heroes came from behind to beat their counterparts Kilimanjaro Stars on 6-5 penalty shootouts to finish third in the Senior Challenge Cup which ended in Kampala yesterday.

The Isles side won 10,000 dollars (about Sh15m).
The game had ended in 1-1 draw in the normal 90 minutes before the third place playoff was taken into penalty shootouts at the Nelson Mandela Stadium, Namboole.

The Mainland side scored first in the 19th minute through Mwinyi Kazimoto before Abdallah Othman Ali leveled for his side in the 85th minute.

This is the second time Zanzibar is overshadowing their compatriots in the Cecafa championship third place playoff.
In 2009, under Brazilian coach Marcio Maximo, they defeated Kilimanjaro Stars 1-0 in the third place playoff at the Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi.
