Harambee Stars edge out Zanzibar Heroes

Harambee Stars edge out Zanzibar HeroesA vastly improved Harambee stars sunk Zanzibar Heroes 2-0 in their final group match in the ongoing Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup match played on Tuesday afternoon at the Afraha stadium to sail to the quarters.

Azam defender Joackins  Atudo drilled from the spot in the sixth minute  after the exciting  Francis Kahata was  brought down in the box, leaving Atudo with no choice but to  perfectly hammer a hard  shot on the roof of the net.

AFC Leopards striker Allan Wanga then made it 2-0 in the 61st minute with an 18 yard screamer after engaging Jacob Keli in a neat one- two exchange.

The win left Kenya joint top with Ethiopia on equal points and goal difference as they sailed to the next phase. The winner of the Poll will now be decided with a tossing of a coin.

South Sudan on the other hand finished bottom of the group  with no point  and have been bundled out of the tourney joining Somalia and Rwanda as the teams that will  take an  early flight  home.

Man of the match Jacob Keli was ecstatic after the game.“We played well, it’s a vast improved, but we have to go even a notch higher in the next match .Wanga(Allan) is a good friend  of mine and I am  happy  he scored”
