APR have climbed to the top of the Turbo King Football League table after a comfortable 2-0 win over newcomers Esperance FC at Stade de Kigali, Nyamirambo, yesterday.

Isaiah Isonga and new signing Patrick ‘Pappy’ Sibomana scored for Andreas Spier’s side in either half of the game which the victors dominated and never looked vulnerable.

The result means that the military side remains the only team with 100 per cent record in the 2013/14 league after all its main rivals dropped points in the second round of matches.

It was the second successive loss for Esperance after their defeat to Police, a week earlier.

APR, now at the summit with six points, kicked off their campaign with a 6-2 win mauling of Marines FC the previous weekend.

On a weekend of twists and turns that saw Mukura fall 1-0 to Marines in Rubavu thanks to Bonaventure ‘Gangi’ Hategekimana’s penalty, ten-man champions Rayon Sports and Kiyovu played to a goalless draw at Amahoro stadium in Kigali, with Police also drawing 1-1 away to Gicumbi.

Elsewhere, former Rayon and Kiyovu striker Yussuf ‘Kabishi’ Ndayishimiye scored the winner as Musanze beat Amagaju 1-0 to move up the table with four points.
