Jraidi got the chance to put ASFAR in front after connecting Ghizlane Chhiri ball that was failed to be cleared by Simba defence in the 67th minute.

The hosts could have ended the with a bigger scoreline, but Aziz Raabbah failed to convert from a number of clear chances created.

In search of an equaliser, Simba Queens coach Charles Ayiekoh brought in Barakat Olaiya and Koku Kipanga but found no breakthroughs as the Moroccan held on to snatch the maximum points.
