However with half-time approaching a questionable penalty was awarded to AS Vita in the  after Partson Jaure was adjudged to have brought down a AS Vita striker.

Taddy Etekiama made no mistake putting the penalty past George Chigova in goals in the 38th minute.

The second half saw the Zimbabwean champions come out hungrier and seized good ball possession but were unable to break down AS Vita despite with the blunt strike force once again failing the team.
