Simba SC completed the Tanzania Mainland League season in style as they defeated Namungo FC 4-0 at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday evening.

Chris Mugalu struck a brace with Meddie Kagere and captain John Bocco ensuring their names were on the score sheet as well.

Having sealed their 22nd league title and fourth in a row earlier this week, the newly crowned champions played the game under no pressure and that made them more lethal as they tried to score with every opportunity they had.

Wekundu wa Msimbazi had won the last round away 3-1 and having also won one and drawn once as well in the previous two matches, it was obvious they came into the match as favourites.

It took the champions 19 minutes to open the scoring. Mugalu dispossessed the opponent in a dangerous area before passing the ball to Kagere, and the Rwandan had no difficulty finding the back of the net.  

Five minutes later, Mnyama doubled the advantage - a swift counter-attack ended with the ball at the feet of Shomari Kapombe. He passed it to Mugalu and the towering Congolese easily beat the goalkeeper to double the advantage.

Simba went into the half-time break with a two-goal advantage but they could have scored more if they took the many chances created.

In the 67th minute, Mugalu completed his double - Clatous Chama passed the ball to Luis Miquissone.

The Mozambican was fouled 25 yards from the goal and he restarted fast, passing to Kapombe whose cut-back found the attacker in a prime position and he finished the move with ease to score his 15th goal of the season.

In stoppage time, Bocco was fouled in the danger zone and the referee had no option but hand the Msimbazi Street-based charges a penalty. 

The Tanzania international rose to the occasion, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way to seal his Golden Boot this season. It was the 16th goal in the just concluded campaign.

Simba ended the season with 83 points from the 34 matches they played. Mnyama won 26 matches, drew five, and lost three. They scored 78 goals and conceded 14 in the process.
