VIDEO: ENPPI edge past Al Masry to earn first three points
The hosts took a 2-0 lead that lasted until the 78th minute, before their opponents halved the deficit to set up a nervy finish.
Salah Ashour scored the opener in the 28th minute, heading home from an in-swinging free-kick.
Four minutes later, Lamah cut inside from the left and played Kaoud in behind the defence with a deft flick, and the latter squeezed home from a tight angle to double the lead.
Said Mourad’s long cross in the 78th minute found an unmarked Gomaa, who headed easily past the stationary Abdel-Monsef, but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation as the match drew to a close.
ENPPI travel to Alexandria on Thursday to face Smouha.
