Police 6-0 Etincelles

Mukura 0-1 APR

Espoir  1-2 Rayon Sports

Esperance 2-3 Musanze

Marines 0-1 SC Kiyovu

Gicumbi 0-1 AS Kigali

AS Muhanga 1-1 Amagaju

MIDFIELDER Imran Nshimiyimana netted a brace as Police routed Etincelles 6-0 in the sixth round of the Turbo King Football league yesterday at Stade de Kigali.

Sam Ssimbwa’s side displayed fine football as they started from where they stopped in the 2-1 win over Rayon Sports to register the biggest win of the season by any team. APR scored six against Marines on day two of the season, but they conceded two.

Leaders AS Kigali maintained their impressive start to the season as they snatched another slim 1-0 win over hosts Gicumbi FC. Bodo Ndikumana’s lone goal helped AS Kigali move to 15 points in six matches played this season.

Champions Rayon Sports recovered from the weekend loss to Police register a 2-1 win over hosts Espoir in Rusizi. Cedric Amissi and Fuadi Ndayisenga snatched crucial goals to move to fourth position with 13 points, level with APR, who beat Mukura 1-0 in Huye.

Djuma Bizimana scored an own goal to help the military side move into the top three despite a poor start.

At Stade de Kigali, Nshimiyimana’s first goal of the season came after he took advantage of a defensive blunder from skipper Ndayisenga Mbanyi to score past goalie Mukadi Irunga off D’amour Uwimana’s corner in the 24th minute.

Two minutes later Uwimana curled home a superb free kick, scoring the second goal from the edge of the box where Innocent Habyarimana had been ….

Peter Kagabo made it three as he chipped a brilliant ball outside the penalty box in the 27th minute as Ssimbwa’s side sent a strong statement to rivals.

The first half ended 3-0 but would have been five if Jacques Tuyisenge and Kipson Atuheire’s headers were not ruled out due to contentious off-side decisions.

Atuheire bagged his third goal of the season and fourth for Police after connecting a well-prepared set piece which the former APR and URA striker neatly put past Irunga in 52nd minute.

Nshimiyimana was again on the score sheet as he headed a fifth goal off Donatien Tuyisenge’s corner in the 70th minute. The scoring rout was completed ten minutes later when Jacques Tuyisenge dribbled past three defenders and chipped a delightful ball beyond the reach of goalie Irunga.

The win moves Police to fifth position with 11 points, while Etincelles who suffered their first loss of the season, dropped to Seventh position.

Elsewhere, Musanze maintained their grip on the second position with 14 points after a 3-2 win over Esperance, while Gilbert Kanyankole’s SC Kiyovu moved into eighth position after notching their second of the season with a 1-0 win over Marines.

At the bottom, Amagaju registered their first point of the season after a 1-all draw away to fellow strugglers AS Muhanga. Amagaju’s point was secured under caretaker coach Pablo Nduwimana following the resignation of head coach abdul Mbarushimana early this week.
