Horoya took the lead nearly at the stroke of the first half through their striker Yakhouba Barry.
However, defender Daniel Cardoso converted from the penalty spot to give Chiefs the equaliser in the 67th minute.
Chiefs celebrations were cut short as 19-year-old Horoya midfielder, Sekou Camara’s goal restored the host’s lead 2 minutes after.
