They were punished in the second half.  In the 55th minute Kasonga scored a rebound to give Tigers the lead.

After the game, coach for Tigers Chancy Nsema said Mchengautuwa are a good side and they gave them a good game.

“Mchengautuwa is a good side and they gave us a good run. We are now going back to look into mistakes we did and get prepared for the quarter finals game,” said Nsema.

Technical Director for Mchengautuwa Daniel Kilembe rued silly mistakes which cost his side the match.

“We played well and Tigers were under siege in the first half but in the second half silly mistakes cost us two goals,” said Kilembe.
