Host club Azam FC shared the spoils with Viper SC in a thrilling but highly physical 1-1 draw in a Cecafa Group A match played under floodlights at the Chamazi Stadium here in Dar es Salaam.
After a cagey opening 20minutes, Shaban Iddi put Azam ahead in the 23rd minute with a neat strike full of technique and elegance.
The goal gave Azam more steam as the game suddenly sprung to life.
Iddi could have had his second two minutes later, this time from the left again, but his low strike missed the target just inches wide with Vipers goalie Sekajja Bashir clearly beaten.
It did not take long before former Gor Mahia forward Dan Sserunkuma equalised for Vipers with a plomb of a finish to the top left corner in the 28th minute, and dashed to the corner flag to celebrate, mobbed by his enthusisatic team mates.
Earlier, Vipers created a neat chance in the run of play in the 20th minute with Dan Sserunkuma sprinting on the left but his effort failing to go past the Azam defenders while a Duncan Seninde follow up missed the target.
After the breather, Azam tested Vipers SC goalie Bashir Sekajja with a fierce rasping drive by Yahya Mudathir but the former was equal to the task.
In a early kick off at the same venue, Zanzibar`s Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi(JKU) beat Kator FC of South Sudan 2-0. Abraham Musa and Nassor Mata Juma got the goals.
JKU are now on four points while Kator are on the brink of elimination after losing their opening game 2-1 to JKU to sit bottom of Group A.
