CECAFA Kagame Cup 2019: APR FC edge Green Eagles to book last eight spot

Posted on Jul 08 2019

Three-time champions APR FC registered their second victory at the on-going CECAFA Kagame Cup Tournament after edging Green Eagles of Zambia 1-0 on Monday at Stade de Kigali.

An own goal from Green Eagles defender Borface Sunzu in the 59th minute earned the military side a slim victory to power the Jimmy Mulisa coached side into the quarter final round and topple Group C with six points.

With a barren draw in the first half, APR FC right back Ombolenga Fitina dribbled over two Green Eagles players and unleashed a long shot which Sunzu could not clear inside the goal area, to only deflect the ball past his goalkeeper into the goal net.

APR FC could have even extended the lead but poor finishing from substitutes Byiringiro Lague and Danny Usengimana could not allow them to find the net.

In an earlier game played at 13:00, Proline FC picked their first three points as they defeated Heegan FC of Somalia 2-0 courtesy of goals from Okiror Ocean Joshua in the 61st minute and Mustafa Mujuzi in the 75th minute.

APR FC now leads Group C with six points in two matches followed by Proline FC who are tied on three points with Green Eagles while Heegan lie bottom of the standings with no point in two matches.

Group D
Stade Umuganda hosted their first group matches today with Djibouti’s AS Ports staging a brilliant start to the tournament as they defeated KMKM of Zanzibar 2-0. Gabriel Dadzie scored a brace in the 25th and 74th minute respectively.

In the second game, Kenyan giants Gor Mahia beat DR Congo guest side AS Maniema 2-1 in the second game of the day.Ochieng Wellington put Gor Mahia with a brilliant strike in the 22nd minute before Boniface Omondi doubled the lead in the 50th minute.

AS Maniema Union pulled one back with eight minutes to the end of the game with Denis Lukwera’s strike.

After the first match day in Rubavu, AS Ports leads the group with three points ahead of Gor Mahia on goal difference while AS Maniema Union and KMKM lie third and fourth respectively.

Tuesday’s Action
Action continues on Tuesday with Group A’s second matches which will be staged at Stade de Kigali while Group B will also be playing their second group matches at Stade Huye.

Kenyan side Bandari FC hosts Mukura VS at 13:00 with a mission of securing a second win to book a quarter final ticket while home side Mukura VS will be hoping to bounce back from the opening day loss to Azam FC if they are to realize their chances of qualifying to the knock-out round.

The second game will see reigning champions Azam FC take on Ugandan representatives KCCA at 15h00. Azam FC has three points on belt following a 1-0 win over Mukura VS in the first game while KCCA managed a 1-all draw against Bandari FC.

At Stade de Kigali, KMC of Tanzania takes on DR Congo’s side TP Mazembe at 17h00. KMC managed a 1-all draw against Atlabara FC in their opening match while TP Mazembe lost 0-1 to Rwandan side Rayon Sports FC.

The second game will see Atlabara FC hosting Rayon Sports FC at 19:30 at Stade de Kigali.

Two teams from each group will advance to the quarter final round of the region’s oldest continental club championship which is slated to climax on July 21.
