Rayon Sports held by AS Ports in Cecafa Kagame Cup

Posted on Jul 03 2018

Rwandan side Rayon Sports Fc failed to accumulate maximum points as they were held to a 1-all draw by Djibouti champions AS Ports in their Cecafa Kagame Cup Group B match staged at Chamazi Sports Complex on Tuesday.

AS Ports rallied from a goal down to hold the Blues to 1-1 in the second half following a first half strike from skipper Kwizera Pierre.

Pierre Kwizera fired Rayon into the lead at the stroke of halftime with his second strike in the competition but Ports’ Mohd Hussein pulled level with six minutes to go.

A draw throws the group wide open with Ports topping on four points, Rayon second on two while Gor, who play Burundian side Lydia Ludic later on Tuesday, sit third.

Ports coach Charmarkeh Miad was forced to make changes to his starting line-up replacing Mohammed Bourhan for Ibrahim Ali after the former sustained a knock during the pre-match warm up.

Moussa Halem’s free kick from 20 yards was easily picked by Rayon custodian Kassim Ndayisenga in the 36th minute in the only meaningful attack by the Djibouti side in the opening half.

Ismail Diarra had an opportunity to double Rayon’s advantage on 69 minutes but his shot was blocked after rounding off Ports shot-stopper Lumiya Sulait.

Mohd Hussein had a golden chance to level the scores after being put through by Salem Breik in the 70th minute but could not find a way past an on rushing Ndayisenga.

Hussein exhibited his brilliance in the 84th minute this time round rounding off the Rayon goalkeeper to turn home the equaliser.

In the other Group B match played on Tuesday, Gor Mahia and Lydia Ludic settled for a 2-all draw in Chamazi.

AS Ports now leads Group B with four points followed by Rayon Sports and Gor Mahia who are joint on two points while Lydia Ludic sit bottom of the group with one point.

Rayon Sports face next neighbors Lydia Ludic in their last group games on Thursday while AS Ports will take on Gor Mahia.
