Despite missing five of their key players, among them Kenyan international Lilly Awuor ahead of the opening encounter of the second leg against Iringa, visitors Kigoma Sisters edged Iringa FC 2-1 in a Tanzania Women Premier League (TWPL) match played at Iringa Grounds on Wednesday 4 December.
The Kigoma side went ahead through a Rehema Abdul strike before Amina Ally doubled the scores. Iringa would then grab a consolation to ensure they got a respectable scoreline unlike the first leg where Sisters thrashed them 4-0 with Lilly, who watched from the sidelines awaiting a permit, netting a hat-trick.
Meanwhile the league leaders went into the match without Congolese international Nabintu Ramadhan, Flora Kayanda, Halima Kaniki and Neema Paul who were expelled for breaking camp rules.
Sisters' Coach David Siang'a is positive they can retain the title and reveals he will sign three more players in a bid to keep the spot at the helm.
"We are looking to make three more signings in different departments in order to boost our team after several players left. Despite missing our key players we are working on maintaining our spot at the top and to win the title at the end of the season," Siang'a said.
In another TWPL match Mwanza based side Mash Academy beat Singinda 3-0 while other matches are scheduled for Thursday 5 January.
