Talented Ghanaian midfielder Torric Jebrin tasted victory on his Egyptian Premier League debut for Ismaily in their 2-0 win over El-Entag El-Harby on Wednesday in their season opener.
Dervishes coach Hossam Mido handed the former Hearts of Oak whiz kid a starting berth at home.
Jebrin started alongside compatriot Emmanuel Banahene who was replaced nine minutes after the hour mark by Shikabala.
Striker Marwan Mohsen converted a penalty to put Ismaily in front on the stroke of halftime.
Taha Adel was lucky to add the second with 11 minutes remaining at a time when El-Entag looked close to equalizing.
