ABIDJAN. Kevin Zougoula scored a first-half hat-trick for Sewe San Pedro of Ivory Coast as they beat visiting Recreativo do Libolo of Angola 3-1 in the African Champions League on Saturday.

He scored his first after 24 minutes before Cape Verde’s Sidnei equalised for the Angolans 10 minutes later.

Parity lasted just five minutes before Zougoula found the net again and he completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in injury time at the end of the first-half.

Sewe were reduced to ten men on 68 minutes when Pacome Agboke was shown a straight red card, but the hosts held on to win all three points.

Zougoula scored twice for Ivory Coast last weekend in their African Nations Championship, the continent’s tournament for locally based players only, win over Nigeria.                 Agencies

It was Sewe’s first game in the group stages of the Champions League after their opener against Coton Sport was postponed until 10 August because Cameroon clubs were part of the country’s ban from global football.
