Kili Stars first to semis



Tanzania will face winners between Uganda and Ethiopia in the semifinals of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup after eliminating Rwanda.

The Kilimanjaro Stars dismissed the Amavubi 2-0 at Lugogo on Monday in the first quarterfinal of the day, goals coming from Amir Kemba and John Bocco in either half.

There was not much to separate the two sides in earlier exchanges with the Stars and Amavubi trying their foot.

But Tanzania soon found the breakthrough on 34 minutes, Bocco and Mwinyi Kazimoto doing the craft on the left and Kiemba quickly pouncing and sending the ball past Jean Claude Ndori.

Rwanda pressed hard for the equalizer after the break, Tumaine Ntamuhanga coming close. But it wasn’t to be.

Instead, Bocco doubled the Stars’ advantage with his fifth goal of the tournament on 55 minutes. Mwinyi Kazimoto sent a powerful shot from 25 yards and when Ndori parried, it was only as far as Bocco, who squeezed it under Ndori’s body.

Rwanda attempted to rescue the game late, throwing everything at the Kili Stars backline with skipper Haruna Niyonima in the thick of things. But Tanzania held firm to see themselves in the final four.
