Rayon Sport 2-0 Amagaju
Goals from Meddie Kagere and Cedric Amissi helped Rayon Sports bounce back from a disappointing Champions league exit as they beat Amagaju 2-0 on Wednesday in the Turbo King National Football League.
The win helped the blues close gap on leaders APR with just three points.
The win was a positive response for Luc Eymeal’s team following the disappointment of exiting the Caf Champions League at the preliminary round at the hands of Congolese side AC Leopards last weekend.
Rayon, second on the table, took the lead through a well-placed header by striker Meddie Kagere in the 45th minute off a good cross by Robert Ndatimana from the left wing.
Luc Eymeal’s team, that dominated the first half, continued the supremacy in the second half and deservedly got their second goal when Cedric Amiss turned in a neat pass from team captain Fuadi Ndayisenga in the 52nd minute.
Amagaju had two good chances to shake the net but midfielder Adolph Hakundukize and striker Yumba Kaite failed to beat Rayon goalie Jean Luc Ndayishimiye.
The win took Rayon Sports to 40 points, three points behind APR albeit with one game in hand against Police which will be played on Sunday.
