The hosts continued their brand of exciting football in the second half and striker Mphatso Phillemon scored in the 46th minute with an overhead kick but referee Kennedy Kamwendo disallowed it for an infringement.

It was no surprise when Phillemon made it 3-0 in the 74th minute.
In a post-match interview KB assistant coach Temwa Msuku said: “We started on a sloppy pace and conceded two early goals which disturbed our play. We tried to come back and level in the second half but could not just make it.”
