Rayon Sport sidestep SC Villa

Rwanda’s Rayon Sport are into the finals of the RPF Anniversary final after beating Ugandan side, SC Villa, 2-0 on Sunday evening in Kigali.

DR Congo-born striker Kambale Salita and Amissi Cedrick scored the goals in either half at Nyamirambo Stadium.

Salita opened the scoring on 40 minutes when his header gave the Jogoo goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan no chance before the home side doubled their lead on 86 minutes as Amissi’s ball went in off the post.

Rayon should have won the game with a bigger margin if striker Jerome Sina’s shot from inside the box had not sailed wide of Ochan’s left-hand post and out for a goal kick.

Amissi and Fuadi Ndayisenga had their attempts halted by impressive Ochan, while defender Daniel Segawa saved another of Salita’s strikes off the goal line.

SC Villa pressed forward with striker Allan Kiiza and Godfrey Sembatya coming close but without really breaking through.

Rayon will now face APR in the final of RPF 25th anniversary football tournament on Tuesday at Stade Amahoro.

APR reached the final after beating Burundi side Vital’O 2-0 thanks to goals from Jean Claude Iranzi and Tumaine Ntamuhanga on Saturday.

SC Villa will face Vital’O for the third place play-off. The winner of the tournament will walk away with $10,000 while first runner-up will pocket $7,000 and third $5,000. The fourth placed team will also win $3,000.
