Primus League

Yesterday
SC Kiyovu  0-2  Police FC

A brace from striker Peter Kagabo was enough to see Police cruise to a 2-0 win over SC Kiyovu in a Primus National Football League match played yesterday at Mumena turf.

Kagabo broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute with a fine effort in a game that the visitors dominated from start to finish. He doubled the lead in the 60th minute with a brilliant strike.

Police will be thankful to keeper Alexis Nganza who made a string of fine saves to deny  the old giants several chances that would have changed the score line.

The goal helped him to top the goal scorer’s chart with eleven goals scored this season.

The win ensured that Police remains in second position with 37 points, one point behind leaders and title favourites Rayon Sport in 18 matches played so far.

The Cops side who were eliminated both from the Africa Confederation Cup and Peace Cup competitions recently have their title hopes firmly fixed on the Primus league title after years of failed attempts.

SC Kiyovu remains stuck in seventh position with 29 points.

Primus league action resumes on Saturday with traditional rivals APR and Rayon Sport squaring-off at Amahoro stadium in a titanic battle as the pair seek to extend their quest for the title.

Police will take on Isonga at Kicukiro turf; Mukura host SC Kiyovu at Kamena grounds while relegation battling sides Marines and Etincelles will clash in a Western Province derby at Umuganda stadium.
