St. George of Ethiopia win at Kagame Cup preliminaries

St. George of Ethiopia and Young Africans of Tanzania on Friday won their respective group preliminary games at the Central and East African Club Soccer Championship.

The Ethiopian eleven downed Polisi of Zanzibar with an Andualom Meguse goal scored at the 84th minute.

The Young Africans, locally known as Yanga, defeated Inter Stars of Burundi two goals to one.

Thomas Moris and Said Maulid found the back of net at the 5th and 45th minutes for the Tanzanians while Majaliwa Nshimirimana scored the consolation goal for the Burundians at the 62nd minute.

With their victories on Friday, St. George and Yanga now share the leading position in Group A each with seven points from two wins and one draw. The Ethiopians are slightly in front on goal difference.

With four outright defeats, Polisi of Zanzibar have bowed out of contention.

In the final round of the round-robin group preliminaries, St. George play lowly-ranked Inter Stars while Yanga meet Ulinzi of Kenya.

St. George and Yanga are almost certain to advance into the quarter-finals whereas Ulinzi cannot afford a big-margin victory on the part of Inter Stars while it loses to the host squad of Yanga.

Three teams from Group A advance to the quarters.

Fourteen clubs from all the 10 countries affiliated with the Confederation of East and Central African Football Associations have fielded teams in this year's championship, also known as the Kagame Cup.

The tournament kicked off last Friday and lasts until May 28.

Tanzania's Young Africans, also known as Yanga, is drawn into Group A actions along with St. George of Ethiopia, Ulinzi of Kenya, Inter Stars of Burundi and Polisi of Zanzibar.

Clubs drawn into Group C are Moro United of Tanzania, Altahril of Eritrea, Elman of Somalia, and Sports Club Villa of Uganda.

Sports Club Villa are the defending champions of the annual tournament that inaugurated back in 1974.
