Kili Stars dismiss Falcons



Tanzania opened their Cecafa Tusker Cup in style sidestepping Sudan 2-0 at Namboole on Sunday to join Burundi on three points.

John Bocco’s first half brace was not only enough for the Kilimanjaro Stars to lay their mark as genuine contenders for the title they last won in 2010, it also moved him level with Selemani Ndikumana, who struck twice in Burundi’s 5-1 win over Somalia earlier on.

The Kili Stars are second in Group B thanks to Burundi’s superior goal difference. The two face off in the group’s next game on Tuesday, the same day Sudan and Somalia search for their first points.

Tanzania enjoyed better spells of possession but with Sudan having their own moments.

Mrisho Ngasa was the Kili Star’s main man, breaking down the left to cross for John Bocco, the striker effortlessly tapping in for his first of the tournament on 16 minutes.

The second was a carbon copy of the first, Ngasa again breaking down the left and his cross met by a rampant John Bocco for his and Tanzania’s second after 28 minutes.

Sudan returned from the break more spirited but Juma Kaseja, the Tanzanian skipper and goalkeeper, was always in the right place when Mohammed Musa and company found spaces to shoot at him.

Adam Sayer could have actually pulled one back with the clock ticking but he skied from three yards rather than direct the ball into Kaseja’s goal. That was just about their story of the day.
