BY SAMSON MBII,9TH DEC 2017-Rwanda has managed to register its first win in this year’s CECAFA tournament after beating Tanzania 2-1. on Saturday. Rwanda’s Wasps registered the win after overpowering Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro Stars at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos .The move has dimmed Tanzania’s hope of advancing to the semi finals.
Mico Justin and Abbedy Birahimire scored for Rwanda, while Daniel Reuben Lyanga netted the consolation for Kilimanjaro Star.
Daniel Reuben Lyanga’s made two attempts in succession, in the seventh and in the ninth minutes with Rwanda’s goalkeeper Nzarora Marcel swiftly denying him on both occasions.
Things seemed to balance play wise until the 19th minute, when Mico Justin capitalized on a defensive lapse to slot in past a diving Manula for the opener.
A determined Kilimanjaro Stars, under the tutelage of Ammy Conrad Ninje, restored parity when Lyanga rose above Thierry Manzi and Soter Kayumba to head in a volley from the right channel.
Hakizimana Muhadjiri could have doubled Rwanda’s advantage six minutes to the break, but lost his footing as he prepared to pull the trigger.
The second stanza was an end-to-end affair with both sides creating several chances but failing to score.
