Striker Ahmed Atef added the third in the stroke of the hour-mark, five minutes before Mohamed Farouk’s goal who made it 4-0.

Substitute striker Marwan Mohsen completed the rout with ten minutes remaining, while Yehya Hamed scored the consolation goal for the Nile Delta club in injury time.

Earlier in the day, Ismaily clinched the third place after defeating Enppi 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in regular time.
