Rwanda Spirited Muhazi United hold APR FC at Kigali Pele Stadium

Muhazi United put up a spirited performance to earn a point against league leaders APR FC after the pair played out a 1-1 draw at Kigali Pele Stadium on Sunday.

The Rwandan National League week 25 encounter saw APR head coach Thierry Froger handing Gilbert Mugisha a starting berth while Ramadhan Niyibizi settled for a place on the bench.

After half time, it was still Muhazi in the driving seat as they broke the deadlock in the 55th minute through a decent effort from right back Obed Uwumukiza.

APR got their acts together and started pushing more men forward. They took control of the game briefly and netted in the 70th minute through Victor Mbaoma. It was the striker’s first goal in the second round of the league.

Muhazi were reduced to 10 men in the 86th minute following a red card to Richard Ndayishimiye for a second bookable offense but they held on to earn a deserved point.

The result delayed APR FC’s title party despite leading the title race by 11 points. Meanwhile, Sunrise FC lost 2-0 to AS Kigali at Nyagatare Stadium. Erisa Keith Ssekisambu opened the scoring for the citizens in the 19th minute before Aimee Ntirushanwa added the second.

At the Nyamata Stadium, Elijah Ani scored a brace including a 90th minute equalizer as Bugesera FC settled for a 2-2 draw with Etincelles.
